The Command considers us a bunch of losers. But we’re gonna do it right this time, ’cause we’re the best. If we don’t... We’ll be drummed out of the corps.

everyone's pictures are SO gorgeous! : i need a new camera desperately-my old canon powershot just doesn't get it anymore. i need to shoot DD15 in the marching band, and i can't get any good closeup shots at all.

can anyone recommend a really good P&S with the photo quality shown here for $400 or less?

As you can see from my giraffe close up at the beginning of the thread, the Sony HX30 or HX20 (or HX200 if you want a bridge style) would be a great choice for outdoor daytime shots. It is even a more awesome camera when you realize it can be shooting HD 1080 60i video And take a 13mp still picture every few seconds.

But stadium lighting is a lot darker than you imagine. Most, if not all of the darker shots on this thread are the results of slow shutter speeds which means any motion would become a blur. My experience in nighttime lighting mostly results in slow 1/30 or 1/60 shutter speeds. You might get lucky and get some nice shots with DD standing still.
You could hope for something "as good as"

Or

But this might be as good as you get (and it really does not belong in a magic thread)


In stadium lighting you are really fighting physics, there is just not enough light to saturate a small point and shoot sensor...and I don't want you to miss capturing those great memories!

The past 2 nites the sky has just been amazing in NH. The color of the clouds and the sunsets took my breath away.......Sorry, I only have a "point and shoot" camera....Hope someone had the right equipment to capture this......
