looking for a camera withburst mode.I want it to have like 4mp and 5fps. It should be 600 dollars or less. The camera will be used to take pictures of me and my friends bmxing and other stuff like that.I have very little knowledge with photography so any advice would help

Sure no problem, I'd be glad to help.

First off, 5 FPS is very hard to find for something under $600, 2.5 to 3 FPS usually ranges in this catagory.

The Canon A80would be a reasonable choice:

Also since you said you want to catch your friends BMXing, you may want a reasonable camera with a good zoom, that would be the Minolta Z2: http://www.steves-digicams.com/2004_reviews/z2.html

As well as the Canon S1 IS since it has a 10X zoom as well:

Feel free to ask me any other questions!

The Panasonic FZ10 will capture 5 full sized 4Mp frames in 1.2 seconds. And it doesn't seem to buffer them. You can take another burst almost immediately. 12X zoom with f2.8 all the way to 12X is about as good as it gets for long telephoto action shots without going to a DSLR.

The stabilization is also nice but not for action shots.

The viewfinder blanks during burst shooting. Many cameras do that.
