I shoot a lot of baseballboth in day and at night.I have been using a Kodak 7630. However it just broke. I'm looking at getting the Kodak Z740. My nephew is a pitcher and I have gotten some great shots in burst modebut I want to make sure that the Z740 will go an even better job. Due to some complicated circumstances I need to replace the 7630 at the location where I purchased it. I can upgrade and the Z740 will cost me about $80. I can stay with the 7630 if I want to also. I've heard that there is a bad lag time with the Z740.My other concern is battery. I have three batteries for the DX7630 already. I haven't been able to find any data on how long the battery life is on the Z740. My first camera was an HP that ate batteries.

I also use the camera for work - Real Estate - so I shoot exteriorwith bright light and shadows. I'm often shooting water and ofcourse interior photos in low light conditions with backlighting. So I basically need it all.

I would appreciate any input. But I need it ASAP. I need to get the new camera right away since my nephew is pitching in the Little League Sectional Tournament Friday night.

How about the Z730, it replaces the excellent DX7440, but has 5mp.

This has 4X zoom, a 33mm wide, a built in lens cover, uses trhe same battery, & ISO 80 to start.
