Hi everyone, So heres the deal. We currently have a Kodak DX6490 that we bought about 3 years ago. The camera takes decent pictures outdoors with plenty of light. But other than that the pictures often come out blurry. It often seems to focus on background objects rather than what were shooting. It also has a 10x optical zoom, which we really liked the idea of when we bought it, but theres no image stabilization so its useless without a tripod. What I miss the most is the ability to manual focus. Wed like to get a new digicam that has at least some basic manual controls including a manual focus. Were mostly shooting family pictures, but we would also like to take action pictures at our kids sporting events. I also attend auto races frequently and would like to be able to get some good in-motion shots there. Size is not a big factor, but the lighter the better. Given all this, Im leaning toward a Canon Digital Rebel XT. It may be a little more advanced than we currently need, but it certainly seems to be a camera that would grow with us if we wanted to take it further. Its also at about the top of our price range considering wed want to be able to buy a couple good lenses for it as well. So does this sound like a decent choice? Any other digital SLRs we should consider? Or maybe any point-and-shoots that would suffice given our needs? Thanks in advance.
