Thanks for looking all, and I appreciate the nice words. I haven't been shooting sports much lately but this week I'll probably be doing a few more basketball games, which will help me get back into shape a bit.

Darlene, I'm using a Mark II Canon but I also use a Rebel which works just as well at lower ISO speeds. I find that the majorconsideration for this type of shootingis the lens, and if I personally had a choice between a $5000 camera body and a slowerlens or a $1200 camera body and a good fast 85/1.8, 50/1.4 or 1.8lens, I'd take the latter combo any day for indoor sports.

A program called NEAT IMAGE will also help tone down high ISO photos but needs to be used sparingly as it can tend to plasticize a photograph if overdone.

Cheers

Ahhhhh! Those fantastic fotos were taken with the $5000.00 dollar camera! Ok, so your other camera is a rebel. would you recommend the rebel or the D70 for the indoor basketball?

thanks a bunch!

Darlene, if I were buying cameras right now and wanted the best value for the money I'd probably go for the 20D because of it's advertised ability to handle higher ISO and it's 5 fps burst. However, and this is a big however, I'm unfamiliar with NiKon cameras or lenses. So I couldn't recommend one over the other.

Thanks a for looking at the photos and I really appreciate the comments. Good luck finding that camera; I know it's tough making decisions on cameras and lenses and I certainly wish you all the best.

Cheers

This is the photo I tried to display early. What I forgot to do was resize it. That is why it never finished downloading, and it looks like I tried to blowup a digital photo that didnt have the pixation to cover.
