I have a friend that is a personal trainer and is in need of a new camera. He wants to be able to take action shots of himself in his gym, as well as have capability of taking video if possible for marketing purposes. He has a budget of $400. The priority is taking action shots, not so much the video. Again, I don't know much about P&S cameras, so I was hoping to get suggestions. I'm assuming he'll need a good aperture and ISO performance, and a decent MP count (12ish).
Forget about P &S. get an entry level DSLR. The shutter delay of the P & S will kill almost any shot that you want to take.
