It's better at all the other things than it is at sports. Really, how good it does in different scenarios is based more on the lens and the ability of the photographer than the camera itself. A great photographer has the ability to make the most out of the equipment, but that's like saying Tiger Woods is a great golfer, even with the $150 Walmart clubs.
If you want low light then you'll need to buy an external flash or large aperture lens. If you want to do sports then you'll have to look at a lens with a fast focusing motor and if it's indoors then a large aperture. If the light is good and the action is not too fast paced then the kit lens with another lens, like the 55-250mm IS, would satisfy almost everyone. It's when the scenery changes to low light is when it becomes harder to shoot and usually a lot more expensive in lens or accessories.
is it good for EVERYDAY USE??
Not sure about the XSi as an everyday camera ~ Does anybody know if it is good?
As I am thinking for sports ? YES ? Great and I would get a longer lens
But Halloween is coming up ? good at night for the kids walking & moving around??
Birthday?s and kids running around?
Thanksgiving ? just family shots?
SORRY To freak out but I cannot buy a camera for almost 900.00 with all the extra?s ? bag ,etc and not have it work for anything else other then SPORTS !!!
Please HELP ME !
