"The weather is great in South Florida but the action is usually far away so an advanced digital SLR camera body with long fast lenses is required to obtain the maximum image quality.  In addition, such equipment is heavy and requires a study tripod and a monopod.  An advanced SLR body is required to provide the controls and features needed to shoot outstanding Sports images.  High shutter speeds, image advancement of 3fps or more, control of ISO, vertical grips, aperture adjustments, manual mode, auto focus, white balance and other digital settings are required to obtain maximum quality.  In addition, camera bodies with anti-shake systems and stabilization lenses, that allows you to hand-hold medium telephoto and wide-angle lens are a necessity at Sports Events.  The action happens to fast to spend time focusing."
