Fast speed shots

Is there an inexpensive digital camera (under $200.00) that will take a decent NON-Grainy shot at fast shutter speed? I'm trying to get decent shots of puppies with a Canon A100IS with no success.

not for what you're wanting

What it seems you are having a problem with is getting fast enough shutter speeds to get rid of motion blur. What the camera needs is to kick up the ISO level in order to get a faster shutter speed so that introduces noise. The shutter speed does not influence the amount of noise/grain in a photo but ISO does.

So what you are wanting is a camera that is under $200 and takes non-grainy photos in high ISO settings. The only non-DSLR cameras that do that cost over $400.

I should have added

The reason why the ISO needs to be raised is because there is not enough light to expose the photo with a fast shutter speed. If you want non-grainy photos with a fast shutter speed then you need to shoot photos of your dogs in a brighter scene. Your camera can do fast shutter speeds, without being grainy, but they need to be shot in bright scenes.

blured image/more light

I took it up to 3200 iso, went outside in bright sun light, took shots of puppy moving, got very sharp image. Thanks
