Best Cameras To Take Sports Photos?

HI my son plays soccer + i am looking to upgrade my camera. i currently have a $140 digital camera. i want something like a nikon d40 or similar .
which camera would u guys reccommend. my budget is $350-500.

There are many possibilities and opinions.

But it really depends on you. How much do you know about the settings on a camera…what they do, and how to get the best results in any given situation? For example: the ISO settings, choosing shutter priority or Program mode, when to use the flash with slow sync or not.

Enough lecturing…I’d pick a second-hand [B]Sony Alpha[/B]…check this out
