Try lowering the quality of the pictures. It will allow a faster shutter speed since it doesn't need as much data to make the picture. Try throwing a ball into the air and playing with the settings until you can get what you need.

SOURCE: indoor sports pictures

For sports photography, and especially indoors, you really need to be looking at a digital SLR camera. To freeze that sort of motion you need to be looking at a shutter speed of around 1/200 sec or less.
Most compacts won't do this as the light through the small lenses is a lot less than with an SLR. I've just looked at the sports mode on my wife's DMC-TZ5 and it doesn't even tell me anything about shutter speeds or aperture sizes, it's all automatically controlled by the camera.
The only way you would be able to make any difference with your camera is to increase the ISO setting to the highest possbile setting (1600 on the TZ5). The will reduce the blurring somewhat, but will also introduce some noise and graininess into your photos.
See how you get on, if not good enough I strongly recommend you hire a digital SLR for weekend and see the difference it would make - but you would also need a decent lens and this is where SLRs get very expensive!
Good luck
John

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.

My sanyo vpc-s670r digital camera has a blurred shot. how can i fix this problem? i also clean the lens still blurred especially when shotting outdoor.


You must take pictures gently. Blur picture may occur if you move during capturing a picture. Or your hand move too fast after taking a picture. Try to stay still for two or three second after push the capture button.
Blur picture when shooting outdoor can be caused by too much light. Don't forget to set your camera in outdoor or panorama mode, and turn of the flash light if you think its too bright.

Hope this help and RATE please !

I need advice on how to take Ice-hockey action pics...


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.

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.
