CAMERA POLL(non video) nighttime still flicks

    here's the thing: me and my kids have spent $19.95 for cheap point n shoot cameras dozens of times, only to have them break in about 4-5 months. We had a $70 pentax that got busted in about a year. Keep in mind that these cams were always intended for nighttime flicks, so they always ended up filthy with dirt and paint and also jostled around in bags, pockets, etc. I have a SLR for daytime flicks, but it is too bulky to take out on missions(at night), and you know how it is when you gotta stash your bags when it gets hot sometimes. I've also gotten jacked before. Anyway, is there a reliable camera that someone out there would swear by and takes good night flicks? how about digital cuz i was considering this also. and if digi is the way to go, understand that i don't want to spend 300 bucks on a 3megapixel or whatever if its just gonna get lost or broken....anyone?

    p.s. i take a lot of flicks at soccer games too

    FOR GODS SAKE IS THIS SOME JOKE?????????????????
  3. Reffer to it as football please, its the right word for the game.
    The way i see it with a 400/800 you can get dope flicks of graffiti nightshots and football matches if you can have acess to shutter speed.
    Point and shoot dont have that option so the only tip i have is use your flash and shot at an angle, photoshop transform tools work like a charm on fixing unwanted perspective...

    yeah i have a pentax k-1000 SLR and those things last. but i don't want to take a great camera out like that so i use it only for day flicks....i need a dependable point n'shoot that wont bust, or a $120 digi that wont bust when its time to get dirty. shiiit...i'm rockin a canon optura MC Mini-DV that fits in my pocket. Shit is my ice son! VIDEO. but seriously, i'm asking bout STILL FLICKERS.....

    It is soccer. Even the link you posted says it is. European's just don't know what is up. They have all kinds of screwed up games. Look at Cricket.

  11. Denzatori,
    Its football, admit it damn it!
    There is no better term to describe the game, think about it.
    Cricket is indeed one of the most fucked up games i've ever seen, i dont even understand it.
    BUT its strictly English, not european.They have the most fucked up things in the globe, its their style.

    i've got a canon sure shot that has worked incredibly well a night:
    -strong flash so you can stand back and get the whole peice
    -sturdy too
    i suggest you invest in a little camera case to keep paint and dirt off your camera. it'll increase it's life by a lot
