Pictures get blurred because of several reasons:

Low shutter speed - occurs in low lightning conditions.
Auto focus not focused - occurs when pressing the shutter button all the way without waiting for the auto focus ready signal (green box)

To speed up the shutter do the following:
In Camera menu-Quality- Set ISO 100 for outdoor, ISO 400 indoor.

To avert focus problems, set camera menu-Rec- Focus-Infinity, Rec-Quick shutter-On

Hope that helps.

What is better figer skating or hokey. and why

That depends on an individual themselves. There is no answer to your question which can speak for everyone. So it's is up to you as an individual to come up with reasons why you would pick hockey over figure skating. Here are some arguments, figure skating is artistic(art), peaceful where as hockey is a rough sport requires strong and muscular body and is action. Here is an article take time to read it maybe you

How do i take action shots?

The DSC-HX300 has 16 shooting modes, Anti-motion Blur, Back Light
Beach,,Fireworks, Food, Handheld Twilight, High Sensitivity, Landscape, Night Portrait, Night Scene, Pet Portrait, Smooth Skin, Snow, Soft Focus, Sports.
>Use the Sports mode for action. Use the 'burst' option and you'll get several images and be able to select the best moment.
Wider angles (rather than extreme telephoto) allows for less blur if the camera is handheld (even teh improved Steady shot feature can only do just so much.) You may have better results optimizing for either ISO or shutter speed, but that will be lighting and speed-of-action dependant. You'll probably need to experiment a bit.

You're probably going to get blurry photos in such a dim environment no matter what you do. There are several things you can do to minimize the blur, however.

First, if you're sitting in the bleachers, forget about using your flash. You're too far away from the action for it to make any difference.

Raise the ISO as high as you can. It will add noise to the pics, but a noisy pic is probably better than a blurry pic.

Set the camera to aperture priority, then open up the lens as far as it will go (smallest f/number). This will force the camera to use the fastest shutter speed possible.

Use the fastest lens you have (of an appropriate focal length). One of the things that separate professional sports photographers from the rest of us is the speed of their glass. They have $2000 lenses for this purpose, while we probably spend less than that on our whole kit.

Blurry photos if the subject is moving. I'm sure it's just a setting because it was never like this before....any movement at all and i get blurry pics.

You may have the camera set for manual settings and it stopped downtoo much this makes for long exposiure times and blurryy action shots. Your camera has an action or sports setting this will stop most blurs and turn the anti bump on its likly off

I don't know how to change the iso setting for a sports action photo. Please describe in detail. I have no manual.

For sports action, if you want to freeze the action with minimal blur, set the ISO to a higher number such as 400, or 800. A faster "film speed" will allow the camera to have a quicker shutter speed. If you want to blur the subject to denote motion, pick a slower ISO number and you'll be able to take sports photos with a bit of blur in them for effect! If you need help actually setting the ISO for your camera, please let us know what is the make and model of your camera and we'll fix ya up! K

D50, blury pics

Blur can occur if the shutter speed is too low relative to the degree of movement of your subject(s). While the 'sports' mode favors shutter speed and adjusts the focus for moving subjects, you may still need to increase the ISO (I'm not sure the camera does that automatically), or use flash, if feasible.
Alternatively, try panning the camera with your moving subject. This should blur the background, but keep the subject from blurring.
Finally, keep in mind that in sports photography, blur is sometimes a desired outcome that produces a sense of motion in an otherwise static photo.

Hope that helps.

Action pics with a long lens

What you are experiencing is not blur, its camera shake. You are shooting in low light so the shutter speed is being reduced by the camera's automatic features. Also the longer the lens (the farther you zoom), the higher the shutter speed you need. Even for non moving objects or when panning the shutter speed should be at least one stop above the focal length. ie - 300mm lens = 500 or 1000 shutter AT LEAST! (and don't forget, if its a film lens on your rebel, thats actually 300mm x 1.6 =480mm, so 1000 shutter or higher min.) Moving objects require even faster shutters. Solutions: Get faster (also called brighter) lenses which can be pricey. In low light use higher iso settings in the camera menu. Shoot in either manual or Tv mode and choose the higher shutter speeds while using the light meter to decide aperture. Use wider angle lenses or back off the zoom and move closer. Stabilizers built into the lens can steady the shot by two to four times as well.
