Student-which camera?

I am a student at a small private school, and am on the journalism staff. I need a camera for that use, and also for my own personal use. I would like a camera that has at least 3 megapixels, and I need a camera that can handle normal snapshooting around school, as well as take decent sports pictures, both on a field and in a gymnasium. The most I can spend is $250. Right now I am looking at the Canon A75, because it has multiple features, including sport mode, and it is 3.2 megapixels. Any help would be appreciated.

Your search is over.

The Canon A75 is a step above the point-and-shoot camera and is the only camera of that type, on the market, that will fit in your budget.

I notice that has it priced at $199.

That is a very nice camera and that is a very nice price.

For action shots it is advisable to press the shutter button half-way down and wait for the action to occur, then press the button the rest of the way down.

Enjoy your new camera.
