Horse Photography!
 
Hi everybody! I'm sad to say my $800 SLR camera finally died :cry: I'm tired of using my old crappy camera, and my cellphone, so I'm starting the gruelling hunt for a new camera! *Ahemm preferably under $200* I was looking in to the Sony Cyber-Shot WX10, but I have heard reviews that they take amazing inside pictures but crappy outside ones! I use my camera for outside photography, mostly taking pictures of horses. It would be awesome if you guys could tell me what kind of cameras you use to take pictures of your ponies! My only criteria is it has to take nice clear photos that arent grainy ( can be printed larger than 8 x10), and It has to have HD video! I have been doing ALOT of research online on many different cameras, but I thought what better way to find a good horse picture taking camera than on the Horse Picture part of the Forum?! Thanks in advance!

Hmmmm I got this camera for free so I'm not sure how much it is, but it takes amazing pictures outdoors....but when the lighting is too low, like sunsetting, the pictures come out a little blurry....but hey my friend's 1000 dslr's pictures doo too!

Anyways, it's the panasonic lumix dmc-fz18. Only downside is the videos, they aren't hd and you can't zoom when you're taking it, only before :-/ but it's easy to take the frames from the video with this camera.

Does it take nice pictures outside/of horses? It and the WX10 are very similar!

I recently got a Canon Powershot A3300 (currently with a $50 rebate on most sites until the 28th, so it is $109 on Amazon, $99 here Canon | PowerShot A3300 IS 16.0 MP, 5x IS WIde Angle Opt Zoom, 3.0 In. LCD, HD Video Digital Camera - Black *FREE SHIPPING* | 5035B001 | Tri-State Camera, Video, and Computer).

I haven't had it long, but it took some nice low light pictures out at the barn. It is a 16 megapixel camera, so it can easily make prints in the size you want. Takes 760p HD videos.

I am very happy with the quality of outdoor pictures it takes. I am always snapping pictures when I'm riding, hiking, working with the horses, etc. As with any camera, I think you just have to know the features it has and how to utilize them. Of course it doesn't compare to Digital SLR's or some other more expensive cameras, but for my purposes I need something small, and if I ruin it I won't be out a fortune and can afford to replace it. I can post some of my pictures for you if you'd like.

Do you think you could post some pics you have taken with your camera?

I tried to get a wide variety of settings so you could see how it reacts.
