Camera Product Review: Get Great Action Shots

by Brittany Beattie

Having the right camera can help you capture fantastic action pictures for your scrapbook pages. If you constantly take photos of kids, animals, or athletes, an action-packed camera may be worth the investment for you. These two cameras provide fantastic options.




Casio EX-FH100 Camera

Casio EX-FH100

Say hello to amazing clarity in action shots with the Casio EX-FH100. This point-and-shoot camera takes an unheard of 40 frames per second. That's right-you can take 40 pictures per second using the burst mode! That pretty much guarantees you'll capture the exact moment you want. Even on auto mode, the camera's shutter speed is a pleasing 1/2,000 second.



Sony Cyber-Shot WX1/B Camera

Sony Cyber-shot WX1/B

Coming in with a nice shutter-speed capability of 1/1,600 second, this camera's best feature for action shots is its ability to snap nice photos in low-light settings. A great lens, a quick image processor, and an improved sensor allow you to take low-light photos with crisp detail even without a flash. If your children are indoor performers, give this camera a try.
