In this clip, we're going to talk about the best small compact camera for sports photography. There is no best small compact camera for sports photography! I mean there's definitely many variations you can go about to talk about the situation. You've got to find the camera for you really. With the small compact cameras, it used to be a matter of pixel difference or megapixels. SLRs used to be so much better because they had more megapixels, but now you can get a small compact camera with10.1 megapixels just like my Rebel XTi has. So, in that case, why those wouldn't be better is you have no control really over what they do. They have very - a lot less options and you kind of are going to want something you have more control of in order to really make the picture customized to what you think it should be captured. So, when they talk about the compact camera in the sports situation, they're really talking about what's easier for you to move around and get those crazy pictures up underneath the goal towards the soccer ball while it's flying over your head. And these days, the SLR actually isn't that big. It's not that cumbersome to drag around with you. It's - I have a - this is my Canon, it's not that big, it's not that huge and it's not that expensive that you're going to be afraid if you drop it, it might be just as expensive as that compact camera you might ruin yourself with the other one. What's nice about a Canon though is, a lot of cameras have them but Canon kind of originated the straight to pixel technology, which helps you do the click, click, click, click, click, no pause, being able to capture everything as you need to capture it with a speedy process.
