    Hi and welcome to answer you for the sport you really need a DSLR with some long zoom lens, this can then be change to lens for family type pictures. This is a fairlry expensive route but will get the best results. what is your budget

    As wave said, for good sports shots you can't beat a DSLR, but this will cost you at least 350, and then you'll need to spend a couple of hundred more on a telephoto lens (though if you shop around for a twin lens deal it will work out cheaper, such as this http://www.warehouseexpress.com/buy-...s-kit/p1028309 deal for 450).
    Whether this is above your budget, or its too big for what you want I don't know. If it is then you'll need to look at a bridge/superzoom camera such as the recently discontinued but still available http://www.amazon.co.uk/Panasonic-Lu...7756276&sr=8-1. This is smaller and cheaper and has a built-in long zoom but slower to use for action and the image quality won't be quite so good.

    Question What to look for?

    Hello,

    I have just joined this site and I am looking for advices to buy a digital camera slr.
    I don't have any experience in using a professional camera.
    I always wanted a big camera to take nice pictures of everything: landscape, portraits and I hope you could advice me on what to look for when I buy one.
    Because I am a beginner I look for a camera with an average price: 300-350.

    Thank you,
    Kmy

    The Nikon D3100 is the most beginner friendly DSLR but its above your budget (about 499). If you shop around though you can find the previous model, the http://www.amazon.co.uk/Nikon-D3000-...8351505&sr=1-2 within your budget which is also very good. Or look at the http://www.warehouseexpress.com/buy-...s-kit/p1030429, http://www.warehouseexpress.com/buy-...-lens/p1521112 or http://www.warehouseexpress.com/buy-...-lens/p1033548.
