For sports shot you can use panning
Scene menu:If designated through the set up menu, this menu automatically appears in the SCN1 and SCN2 modes. panning:is for takin photos of say example a runner or a cyclist,, You hold down the shutter and pan with the subject this will make the background blurry and the object clear.

Try also to check in manual; Theres a symbol (M) at the mode dial select that and you will be able to control overall exposure settings, including shutter speed and lens aperture...

OR... symbol (S) on the mode dial select that and you will be able to control shutter speed settings...

THANKS!

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.

Shoot at speed


The sports mode on a DSLR just picks high ISO and fast shutter speeds for you. Go Karts are very fast subject to focus on, so there are two techniques you can try.

One is to set your focus to manual mode and pre focus a point where the car will pass through. Set the camera to multi shot mode and just before the kart gets to the pre-determined point, hit the shutter button. The camera will fire off a few shots, then review later on a computer to chooset the best one out of the sequence.

Another way is set your focus mode for AI-Servo or Focus Tracking mode, this will enable the lens to track moving subjects (as single shot mode is way to slow to keep up with karts). Go to the slowest part of the track to get more sucess.

One problem you maybe having is that the shutter speed is too slow for karts. Being indoors the lighting will be very poor, so a super high ISO rating will need to be used to get faster shutter speeds. Having a lens with a very wide aperture (like f2 of f2.8 or even less) will enable you to get faster shutter speeds because they let in more light.

Good luck.

I have the Nikon D60 - Ive taken sport/action pictures


The main difference between the two shooting conditions is the amount of light you have to work with. For the indoor action shots, set the ISO setting to the highest available through the menu (1600 ISO) to maximize the ability of the camera to work with the diminished light. The other (but more expensive) way to achieve better indoor shots is with the use of a "faster" lens, ie one with a lower maximum f stop number (f2.8 is faster than f3.5, for instance). Also ensure you are shooting with your lens at its widest f stop setting (lowest number).

Shutter speed


On most fuji cameras the programmed shutter speed for the sports or action mode is 1/1600. This is the mode you need to use. You should not have to change the aperature unless you have a problem with the light. This is the most difficult shot to make with a digi cam. So make sure you use a larger steady tripod for this shot (If you can't use a tripod crouch down on one knee and use the other as a support.) Keep a steady hand and don't make the mistake of creating camera shake by hurrying an action shot. I focus a little ahead of my subject, then snap the shot when I see they appear. This method even works with lightening. Practice making this kind of shot. You can get very good shots with some care and practice. Good luck.
