Hello everyone. My name is Brian and I am on the ground level in trying to purchase my first camera. I am looking to purchase a camera for sports photography. I have researched online, looking at camera models, terminology, prices, etc and after my head stopped spinning I thought I would seek out a forum in an attempt to get advice from real people who have first hand knowledge. I am looking to shoot football, golf, baseball, basketball on the youth/high school level. My budget is approximately $1000. Any advice in the areas of camera models, lenses and other accessories needed for the sports I would like to shoot is greatly appreciated. I would like to thank everyone ahead of time for their help.
