Ok as some of you know my camera is in the shop and I am using a loaner and my mom's digital. It is a good one, 3.2 meg 3x optical zoom... I took it tonight to take shots of my DD gymnastic class. I missed almost every thing and got the landing. How much time do you need? How do you know when to take the picture? It was great for the posed shots but any movement forget it! I need to have the hang of it by Friday for Field day!
