    I am going to be taking many pictures of moving vehicles, it will be in the daytime, and the cars will be moving at about 50-75mph.

    Is there a good camera for this? I have a spending limit of 500 dollars, and would like to go cheaper. I am fine with an older model, and I dont need many MP, just enough to get an 8x10 picture. All I need is a clear picture of the vehicles in motion, my current camera is horrible.

    Thanks.:)

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    I use a Canon EOS 10 (old model 35mm not digital) for sports photography ans that coupled with a 70-210mm APO f/2.8 does me fine.

    A goof film rated at about 400ASA/ISO is good too.

    It's not just the camera, there is alot of technique in this. Normally, as fast a lens as you can get is recommended. By that I mean how big the aperture can open. That's what lets the light in. Those type of lenses alone will break your budget. If your looking digital, I doubt you will be able to get much with the $500. Sorry.
