So I went by Best Buy yesterday and played with the Canon Powershot SX-710 and Sony DSC-HX50VBDL. Neither seemed to be able to capture a clear image with manual settings to bump up the ISO and control the shutter speed. (I know this is not a surprise)

I then tried the Nikon S9900 and surprisingly enough it was able to capture several moving objects without the blur that I was expecting. I think I used ISO 1600 with a shutter speed of 250. Granted this limits what I can shoot but this may be a good enough choice for an all-around camera.

I am going to purchase one in the next few days and try it out this weekend at a meet to see if it can really do what I need it to do. I will report back to all of you next week.

That f/3.7-6.4 lens will get dim quickly as you zoom into the action, so in order to maintain the fast shutter speed, you'll need to boost the ISO on that noisy 16MP 1/2.3" sensor.

I hope it works out for you. Good luck.
