 Hello moms ~ I'm looking to buys a new camera and need help deciding which is the best for me.  I take "mom" shots of my kids - need to have a good zoom (superzoom?) for my kids sporting events, needs to have good action shot ability.  Would like to spend less than $400.  Thanks in advance!

Back in the day, my fave "mom" camera was my Kodak Z612! It's got an amazing zoom. I did a lot of moon shots with it. Very good detail (with tripod).

This one is a little over $400: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/571144-REG/Canon_2762B003_EOS_Rebel_XS_SLR.html (You can also buy this one used and it's under $400)

Or this one is just under: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/734782-REG/Canon_4344B001_PowerShot_SX30_IS_Digital.html (Also found used for cheaper!)

If you want a nice camera it will cost a little or you can always check ebay and see what they have! (= Good luck camera shopping!

my first camera before I got into photography was a canon Sx 20is.. and I LOVED it.. It had a super zoon and took excellent close up photos of the moon!
