I hate to ask another "what camera to buy" question, but...
Mar 29, 2013

Hi,
My kid is in gymnastics.  The lighting in the gyms is usually fluorescent, seldom good, and we're often not seated very close to the action.  I want to take both decent stills and video.  No flashes are allowed.

All I've got right now is a Panny FZ-18.  Although it's been a good camera for outdoor photos, it's not working out so great indoors as the images are often noisy, and ISO 800 is sometimes not fast enough.

I'd like to try an interchangeable lens camera, have never owned one before, but would like to keep the price down (i.e., camera + lens together have to be at most $800 and would prefer less).  Can you nice ladies and gentlemen steer me in the right direction?

Thank you,
Jarbob
