appreciate ANY feedback you pros have to offer. Ive only been doing this a year you know.

Do I need A D-SLR to get better results??
because after today I am so dissapointed in what could have been captured.
On the camera that is.

As for the guy, they got him, after a 5 hour standoff.

Shot.With. A. Tcon.

Some look like unsteady hand held (diagonal streaking) and some look like my late DX7440 + Kodak Tcon.

Many years ago with one of my first slr cameras (a Kowa Setr) I was in Central Park (NYC) in the winter. I saw a guy go out on the thin ice to rescue his dog that fell through the ice and was clinging to the edge of the ice break. I was standing along side of a horse mounted policeman. The policeman had called for a rescue team to come with ropes and ladders. As I stood there I comented to the policeman that this would be a great picture story. The police man said why dont you take a few pictures. I was so mezmerized looking that I was unaware that my thumbs were hooked in the neck strap of my camera hanging around my neck. Took some pictures and some of the guy going back out onto the ice when he realized he droped his wallet on the ice near the break and he fell in the water when he tried to pick up his wallet.

"I noticed the shots that turned out better had a shutter speed of 1/15.
The poor ones had a shutter speed of 1/4 or 1/5."

I think you answered yourself right there, TG...looks like camera shake, movement....I've never used IS, so can't say how much it helps. I know I can't shoot anything handheld at full zoom under 1/30 and adding the Tcon I would try to shoot at 1/125 or more if possible...add to that people moving around, excitement, a little buck fever, I think the ones at 1/15 came out better than I would expect.

A $2000 dslr won't help in this situation, but a $29 tripod would:-)

I agree Dano..................Tripod. As I have said a million times IS only helps a little bit. To many people think IS everything. After have a handfull of rigs with IS I found my 7590 was the best point and shoot rig on the market. No it does not have snob appeal, but it sure works great. Add a syncflash, and a tripod, what more do you need other the a DSLR and kit.

What I see is motion blur. Low light shots and slow shutter speeds almost always cause this. A tripod or something substantial like a post to steady the lens against will help it a lot. IS is not a cureall. At the slower shutter speeds it might as well not be there! It's the technique not the camera! Just what I see!
