Well when we were in the US I bit the bullet and brought a new camera. In the end I went for the Pentax Optio 33RW because of a few things.
And I have to say it does not dissapoint. The quality is amazing for such a small camera. But things like the fact that it is really small and can fit in a pocket and then when you turn it on it only takes a second or so to be ready then another second or less to focus and shoot means it’s a lot eaiser to capture the action. I am still learning about getting the most out of the action shots but as I tend to be at the back of the group on the boards then it can be a little tricky.Listen to this podcast
