I am using a Kodak DX6490 4 mp & 10x zoom & am mostly taking pics of sports my kids are in & family snapshots. I get "decent" pics for the camera but this is what is frustrating me most: 1. Slow start up time 2. Seems like takes a long time to focus 3. Takes long to process & store pics to card 4. Would like to be able to zoom more of daughter playing in outfield but that may only be solved with a different lens 5. Almost impossible to take pictures at night ballgames... I mess with the PASM settings but can't seem to get it right I would like to upgrade but am not sure I can justify a DSLR because of cost. I only do this as a hobby & take pics of all team members & give them to the girls & am not making any money. Is there another point & shoot camera that will allow me to take action photos that is more advanced than the dx6490 but not costing as much as a dslr?
