Looking for a new camera. Need some advice

Hi all you shutterbugs!

My wife and I have a $500 budget and we're looking for a new digital camera. My son and I both race harescrambles and some MX. Our current camera cannot get those high speed (and most low speed) pics. By the time the picture is taken, the hi speed subject is in another area code. What kind of cameras are you guys using to get those action shots?


Have you looked at a GoPro camera solution? They are well within your budget range (around $300). I know they are primarily used for video capture, but I bet they can be used as a "camera" as well.

haven't really considered a Go Pro because we really want one for things like Supercross, Monster Jam and my son's hockey games. Really want a good camera for stills. Any thoughts?
