Question about Fuji FinePix S5000 Digital Camera
I have a Fuji S5000. I'm not great with mechanical stuff and thought this camera would be easy for me to use. I have 2 problems. I take alot of pictures at horse shows and of my own animals. When I'm taking pictures of a moving horse at a horse show, I get the horse in view, but by the time the camera actually takes the picture, the horse is long gone. I actually have to try to take the shot before the horse comes into the view finder. It's horrible. Whats up with that? And, ANY thing thats moving, which of course is mostly what I take pics of, are just a complete blurr! I can take "still" photos fine. Do I need to go back to a regular 35mm with film? Or, what the heck am I doing wrong? Any help is appreciated!

I have the S5000 and have found that the shutter lag does present some problem with action shots. You do have to focus on the subject, & then hit the shutter just as it comes into the frame. As to the blur, have you tried shutter priority? I recently took a picture of my cousin's daughter jumping over a dog, & got the action perfectly. (I will be posting it in my gallery shortly - I don't remember offhand what the shutter speed was). Set the shutter speed to at least 1/500, or even faster depending on the subject.
