Sport and action shots

by daninrockisland / February 5, 2006 4:20 AM PST

I have a fujifilm S602Z and when I take action or sports shots the subjects are blured. Is there anything
I can do to help this. I am also looking to buy a new
digital camera what would would be good for these kind of shots.

For me, it really comes down to lens selection. The blur you're experiencing is probably a result of a smaller aperture and slower shutter speeds.

I shoot with a Nikon D50 and a 80-200 f/2.8. I can work in poorly-lit high school gyms if I bump the ISO up to 1600. And when I shoot lacrosse in broad daylight, ISO goes down, and the sky's the limit on shutter speed.

If you are shooting in daylight conditions, your present camera will do just fine.

The whole secret is in having enough light.

So I assume you may be shooting in low light conditions or under artificial lights.

To keep me from going off in the wrong direction, how about a bit more information.


Are you talking about daylight sports or something else?
