If you're shooting in the full Auto mode, you are not taking advantage of the capabilities of your digital SLR. Your pictures are blurry because the shutter has to stay open long enough to properly expose the picture, but the people are moving while the shutter is open. You need to increase your shutter speed or increase your ISO, which means you have to select another mode on your camera. You could invest in a "faster" lens, which means that it can allow more light into your camera, but is also more expensive. Try this excellent tutorial on using a digital SLR, then try it out with your camera (use your camera manual to find the correct mode selections, etc.)

Look at the topics under Photographic Concepts to get an understanding of the relationship between shutter speed, aperture, and film speed (ISO).

I have a Nikon d200 and need to take sports photos in a basketball court The sport is very fast moving. What should I set the camera to. Lately the photos are dark and or blurry


You want the fastest shutter speed you can get and the largest aperture possible.
If you're close enough and it's allowed, use the flash. The flash will freeze the action. However, it's likely to give you a dark background instead of a blurry background.
If not, use the Aperture Priority mode. Open the lens to its maximum aperture (smallest f/number). This will give you the fastest shutter speed for the existing lighting conditions. The fast shutter speed will freeze the action and the large aperture will blur the background, though the amount of freezing may be limited if the lighting is relatively dark, as in a high school gym.
Be aware that if you're shooting indoors you're going up against the laws of physics. The human eye can adapt much better than any camera. A high school gym will appear light enough once you've been inside for a few minutes, but it is much, much darker than a bright day outdoors.

I have a Canon Rebel XTi, I am having a problem with the camera either freezing up or being blurry when take action pictures, especially in an arena. Is this a lighting issue or what?


Carmen,
This is likely. Action shots require a fast shutter speed which in turns requires more light. Aside from a very expensive lens, about the only thing you can do is try to increase the light, slow the shutter speed, and increase your ISO rating to 1600.

Thank you.

Basketball game pictures are blurry


basketball game is a fast moving object which is hard to take the picture perfectly sometimes

always using a flash, or external flash for more lighting support, set the shutter at about 1/80 or faster, ISO setting is 400 to avoid darker result, the Aperture should be set at the biggest number such as f 1,4

hope this advice help you

Canon rebel xsi, using 75-300 lens, taking photos of basketball game, pictures are blurry, especially the ones in "action" using the sports mode. also tried my 18-55 IS lens, same thing happening, using...


That's a big lens and for sports photography you are going to need a lot of light to ensure you can use a fast shutter speed to capture the action. Sports mode may do too much for you and you might want to try switching to a more manual mode. Try switching to Tv mode which gives shutter speed priority. Set the shutter speed to something around 1/150 or higher (1/200) which should be fast enough to freeze the action. Make sure the ISO is set to 200 or 400 for best results and see how you get on. This should stop any action based blur which would leave you with focus problems if the pictures are still blurry.

Very blurry pictures on a Cannon Xti 400D


If u had took photo in very low light, pictures will appear blur. Or if you use tele zoom, u need to use tripod to stablize. In normal conditions, you can turn on image stablizer.

The focus lens was hit by a basketball and it won't take pics.


Have you tried a different lens on the camera almost any lens with the same mm size will work. If it still does not take pictures with another lens. You should take it in for service.

I have a Rebel XTi and take professional images. It could be that your lens isn't as sharp as it should be or your sharpness settings in the camera are set low.

Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 IS lens not focusing


I have had to replace the focusing servo motor is these before. The problem of seeking without locking in may mean the same for your lens. Do check for a dirty filter on the front and look to see if the rear optic is dirty or cloudy first. I'm assuming other lenses work fine on your camera.

Blurred night time football pictures


The standard canon 75-300 lens is not considered a "fast" lens. Because of this, when zooming in on objects you are actually reducing the amount of light hitting the image sensor. Fast lenses cost $$$$. Just google "Canon L Glass" and you will see what I'm talking about. Try opening the field of view (zooming out) to allow more light to be absorbed bu the image senor. Crop your subject later in whatever software you use. You can also use one of the manual modes and up your f-stop to make the camera more sensitive to low-light conditions (higher f-stop means higher film speed.. higher film speed is how fast the "film"... aka image sensor absorbs the light. for action photos, faster film speed is key!!). have fun experimenting.
