Default C740 night shot

My question is can the c740 stop the action under the below listed conditions.
1. at night under stadium lights on a high school football field
2. at full 10 optical zoom

I would like to buy this camera but need assurances that it will do the above.

Thank you to all the respond

Assurances? You're asking a lot. I have a 740 and even though I haven't taken any night time stadium shots, I can tell you that you probably won't get many good action shots with 10x in those conditions. 10x works great in daytime when you can use high shutter speeds, but not with those kind of lighting conditions. I doubt that you'll find any cameras in that price range which can do what you want.

Hi!
I own a C-750's Olympus camera and I have to tell you that you're asking a lot for that range.
You'll be able to shoot night pict s witha tripod, at night, and they become great, but not action ones, because it will tale a lot of time of exposure...
You can also chage the ISO option, but it because with lots of noise. I also dont believe that it will be enought to shoot night action picts. I doubt any one will (specially these kind).
Love,
Andrea

I have a C740 and have tried to take pics of a high school football game outside under the lights. I can tell you, it doesn't work. Even if you crank up the iso and use the biggest aperature, you won't get shutter speeds high enough to avoid blurry pictures. If you want to use full zoom, the results would be even worse. Plus, the c740 takes really noisy pictures, even with a low iso setting.
