What camera do you use?

I am shopping around for a new camera. I've mostly been lurking Adorama and Ebay. I want a digital camera, one that does well with fast movement. I photograph equestrian sports, my animals and family events.

I'd also love to see photos of what you photograph with this camera. I don't need anything fancy, just simple point/shoot camera that does well with high speed and has a quiet shutter.

Thanks!

Thanks for your answers AngelicScars. I've seen several of your photos and their very professional looking.

ETA: I found a Powershot on Adorama. Good price for a decently used camera. $49

I would post mine, but it is a DSLR. Great camera, but probably a bit out of your price point and definitely heavier than you want. lol. Good luck!

I've been using a Panasonic Lumix for the pictures in my Spawn Log (link in my signature) and it performs good for a point and shoot.

My current camera is an older DSLR that is a retired forensics camera. It worked great up until the battery gave out and wouldn't hold a charge. I haven't been able to find it's battery anywhere!

As far as weight it concerned, I don't mind the heavier ones. I actually prefer them because I'll have a better grip on them and won't drop them(like I did with my phone last night x|)

Thank you!

I've been told by several people that Nikon is an excellent DSLR and Canon is an excellent P&S. I haven't been disappointed.

You're welcome :)

How well does the Powershot hold up against fast movement?

There is an option on there for kids/animals because they move so quickly.
I can't recall if I needed it for fast movement or not or if the shots came out. I'm sorry.
