what would be a good camera for my mama?

She will be taking pics of mostly italian sculptures, churches, and all that good stuff haha. But she will also be taking basketball, soccer and for me paintball photo's

So my question was, whats a good camera? She doesnt want a point and shoot. but one of the more high tech ones.

Any tips for taking pics would be appreciated.....

Also how to you protect your camera when taking ones at say a tournament?

($649)

Its got hd movie mode, and its probably plenty "high tech" for your mom.
It shoots great pics and is very user friendly.

Umm, I think you mean the Nikon D40 and the Canon Rebel...

EDIT: I'd say get the Pentax K7. I have a K10D, and I absolutely love it. I want a Nikon D300 or D3, but I has no monies.

poke a hole in a garbage bag and put the lens through it.

I really, really, REALLY hope your mom doesn't think she's going to get better photos by having a higher-end camera.

I've seen someone with a cheap Sony p&s take photos WORLDS BETTER than someone who thought his d3x was the key to good photos (he was taking "landscapes" at a beach, and had the balls to shoot in auto)

Look into Nikon, you'll be glad you did later on when it comes to buying lenses.

The only decent Nikon camera in that price range is the brand new D3100. However, I guarantee it will be obsolete in three years. Look into a used lower-end Nikon, and SPEND YOUR MONEY ON GOOD QUALITY LENSES. It doesn't matter what camera you have if your lens is worse than a 99 cent store toy telescope.
I only play paintball so I can tell dirty jokes.
