I'm going to be trying this myself at the racetrack this year (S200EXR but similar) and I'm not expecting my stuff to end up in a magazine ...

I tried the burst mode and liked the "Last 6" mode. I assume the HS10 has something equivalent? Probably even better! That way I could see when it got interesting and release the shutter button. On mine it can buffer up to 40 while you're deciding. I don't know what happens after 40 though. Once it starts writing the 6 shots it "goes away for a while" but it's also under $450.

The +1 was meant as me too .I wanted to see the samples. Thanks for posting them.

Thanks for posting the shots Dave. Getting high quality sports results is an expensive proposition. So if one of the hot new digicams can produce shots good enough for a particular user, I'm sure they're happy to not spend thousands on DSLR equipment.

Again thanks for sharing.

Thanks John G for the reply. I did get a few shots I was happy with but nothing pro like/level as you can see. So far for fire and rescue action and evidence shots it is working out for me.

Sports and little birds are difficult to shoot. I think you did well for your first attempt. Once you start anticipating the action better, I think you'll get better results. Keep shooting

I've been experimenting with burst modes as well, to reduce camera shake while taking Macro shots, hand-held. Usually end-up with a few blurred and one or two sharp images.
