Re: Sport shot is blurred

Most sporting events need to be shot a 1/250 of a second or faster. Auto/Motorcycle racing needs to be 1/500 or better.

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.

I'm using the sports mode and all my shots are blurry and orange

It may just be too dark for action photography. Try turning your ISO up to 1000+. Set your computer in Tv (Time Priority Mode). Use the top wheel to adjust the shutter time to something like 200 or greater. Keep an eye on the aperture value. If it starts flashing, you don't have enough light to support your settings.

When taking night sport shots I don't think I have the right settings for clear photos they are coming out tooo blurry. Help!!! the photos are grainy also and dark. Could you send me the correct setting...

More likely you don't have enough light for clear photos. There's not too much you can do about this, since you probably can't add more light to the stadium or arena and the action is too far away for your flash.

Since the low light is going to force a rather slow shutter speed on you, you need to stabilize the camera. Use a tripod or monopod. That won't stop the athletes from blurring, but at least the setting will be sharper. Alternatively you can try panning with the motion, freezing the athlete and blurring the background.

A faster lens will get you a couple of additional stops, but as such lenses can cost $2000 and more, unless you're taking pictures for Sports Illustrated...

Blurred images when subject moves

With a point&shoot camera you don't have much control. You can try to get a faster shutter speed by setting the camera to the sports mode. You can also try raising the ISO, assuming you already haven't, though that will increase the noise.

Other than that, you're just going to have to increase the light, possibly by using the flash.

Nikon D40 shutter speed problem

The D40 will not take great photos of an indoor event without blurring or noise. You need a fast lens and a high ISO using the popup flash or on camera flash would be ideal but some of these events you can not use flash. All these images I shot with a Nikon D40. Learn to use the camera for ur events. Experiment it's all about trial and error. Ray
