What Digital Camera would you recommend for shooting fast moving field sports? Digital SLR or Digital. I was looking at the Finepix s7000. How does this rate. I'm quite new to photography. Any suggestions welcome. My budget is approx 1000 USD. Thanks is advance.

Well, perhaps I can save you some money. I like long zoom digital cameras and enjoy taking digital photos of sporting events. My #1 choice for the best digital camera for this kind of shooting is clear. It is the Kyocera M410R.

This wonderful 10X optical zoom, 4 mp digital camera is capable of continuous shooting at 2 fps with refocusing each and every shot. That is real performance! And are you ready for this? It sells on the internet for less than $US 400!

Does it take movies? Does it take CF cards or something that's a similar or lower price per GB capable of recording at least 7 minutes of video onto a 1GB card at 640x480 fine 30fps? Does it have much less image noise in low light than the S1 IS (like for example at least 2 or 3 stops - for example ISO 100 on S1 is as noisy as ISO 400 or 800 on the M410R) and much sharper pics? If it meets all those requirements is there a brick & mortar place I could exchange my moderately used S1 IS for one of those?

I can be of assistance on some of your questions:

The M410R uses SD cards or chips

I cannot compare the noise analysis to the Canon S-1, you own the Canon.

Why not go to Kyocera USA's website for the location of a local dealer.
