The Right Camera for Me?

I really want to get into taking pics of paintball tournaments. Hopefully, get up to the professional level in a few years. So what camera do you reccommend for an entry level photographer. Not too expensive, but can take good enough pics. Any help would be appreciated, I forgot to search, because it's 9:40 at night and I'm tired as hell. So if it's been posted before, Im sorry. Thanks in advance...

You don't have enough money to start approaching the professional level at all if you want any kind of decent camera, it'll HAVE to be film.

The average nice sports lens costs way, way mor ethan 400 dollars. Sorry. I'd go with a nikon n80 if you can find one used, or a used f100 with a decent lens. Maybe an 80-200 f2.8. Yes, I'm telling you to save up a butt ton of money, and not buy some halfass cam that you will regret

Oh, I know that bro. I don't want to approach any professional level as of yet. Just stuff for a local magazine. Rookie teams and what not.

It is almos nearly imposible to capture good or decent shots with a Point ans shoot. My recomendation would be to save up another 300 bucks and get the rebel XT, and then save up like 600 more for a decent tele lens.

Just pick up a PnS with the ability to shoot in full manual mode. The ability to write to RAW and manually set white balance would be nice as well. Learn to use the PnS and move up to a camera with better output later, when you're sure you want to spend more money and time on the hobby.

If you can come up with $600 or so take a look at the Canon Powershot Pro1. Lots of manual control, and has the benefit of Canon L glass on it.
