    Hello. Please help me. In April i am looking to travel the country to all the cricket grounds taking photos of the players and the days play! I need a really good camera which will be able to print out 12x8" pictures. I have saved alot of money but i cant spend more than £500. As you may know if i am in the stands at the cricket ground, the wicket in the middle where the players are is very far away so i will need a good zoom. I also want to take pictures of the bowler running up and as he will be running i want to take pictures of him running in step by step. But i have a basic old 3x zoom i think it is and it doesnt zoom in very far. PLEASE PLEASE HELP ASAP with where to buy and what i need. I know you must be very busy but i need to buy very soon. Respond asap in as much detail as possible. Thanks ever so much for your help. This website is brilliant!
    email me on [email protected] anytime with advice!

    Ahoy Fantagirl!

    I've sent you an email, but in case you don't get it, try these links regarding the Panasonic DMC-FZ20:

    This camera apparently is the 'mutts nuts'. I've just ordered it's baby brother, the DMC-FZ3.

    Reviews etc available from:

    Hope this has been of some use. :D
