Sports Mode


Here's a secret:  I often shoot in the Sports Mode on my camera.

I'm much more worried about getting the shot rather than the technical aspect of a shot.  There have been too many times when someone or something was moving too fast for me to capture it.  And nothing ruins more photos than blur.

Why use the Sports (Action) Mode?  It's made to catch movement.  Shutter speed is increased in this setting. 

This setting is good for me because I really do like to "shoot from the hip" and take sneaky people photos.  :)

I hope this helps some of you.  It's a great little trick.
