Ok - I've decided to post this here instead on one of the Digital Camera specific forums because I think you all will be more impartial. Anyway - I have a Canon S3 IS digital camera which I use for sporting events and places I go where I don't mind carrying a camera. I also have a Canon Powershot 800IS for portablity and taking with me when I don't feel like carrying anything bigger. Anyway - I've had a bunch of Ultra-Zoom point and shoots in the past, Canon, Olympus, Panasonic, Kodak, etc... and am wondering if its time to take the plunge into a lower priced DSLR. The only problem is - I currently rely on auto settings and pre-sets to much and don't really know what all the controls on a camera mean! I try to play with them the best I can, and I have a good concept of it, but I'm by no means an expert.... From what I've been reading a DSLR would definately produce better results than my current Canon (or any non-SLR) -especially because I'm mainly using it for live sporting events and fast action - but at the same time - without having auto settings and pre-set modes to fall back on, is it worth switching? Opinions?
