Help!! Currently I have an Olympus C-4000 and I have found that I need to anticipate what the kids are going to do to get a picture of what I want. What is out there that won't break my pocketbook but will help me get the pictures I want without guessing when to take it? Thanks to all for help.

well my quick suggetion is you'll want to look at a DSLR but... getting a good setup may be more money than you want to spend... what kind of sports? Outdoors? or inside in a horribly lit gym? :?

This one won't break your pocketbook: http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/A2/A2A12.HTM

"Shutter lag and cycle time: Very fast shutter response, great cycle times. The DiMAGE A2 is a very fast camera overall, and one of the only two 8 megapixel models currently on the market with usable speed when shooting in RAW mode. (The other being the Canon Pro1.) Its shot to shot cycle time in single-shot mode is the fastest of any of the 8-megapixel models currently on the market.)..."
