About 8 years ago, my wife and I were planning vacation to Hilton Head Island and I talked her into letting me buy a new lens for the trip. I went with a Sigma 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 Contemporary DC Macro OS HSM because it gave me a nice range of wide angle and telephoto options. I purchased the lens on Amazon for around $400. At the time, it was easily the most money I’d ever spent on a lens but, given the versatility of the zoom, I assumed it would be the only lens I’d ever need. And it was...until my grandson started playing sports.
Let’s start off with the good news: the number of high quality point and shoot cameras available has never been higher. The bad news? The number of high quality point and shoot cameras has never been higher. You'd think that having so many fantastic options would be great but it actually just makes it harder for the average non-photography expert to figure out which one is right for their exact needs. And if you have kids that play sports, your needs could be very specific. No worries though. We’ve taken a look at the latest round of point and shoot wonders and have put together recommendations matching up specific models with some of the most popular sports. It doesn’t get much easier than that. You're welcome.
