If you want to take better action shots with your camera, there are a few tips and tricks you can use to get the best results. Using a wide-angle lens and panning can help to exaggerate the effect of the action. The camera's foldable flash can be used to create a technique called “flash and blur”, which combines a slow shutter speed to blur the background while the flash freezes and focuses on the subject. This works best in low light conditions, such as at dawn or dusk.
To create an image with flash and blur, you can either keep the camera steady and take the photo as the action moves in front of the camera, or use the panoramic view to follow the subject while taking the shot. To avoid overexposure, increase your ISO speed if necessary. Burst mode can also help capture the ultimate moment. When composing a shot, use zonal focus to establish an area of sharp focus on the subject.
Multi-pattern measurement is not ideal for taking close-ups of people or animals in action, so using a digital SLR camera is recommended. To achieve a good panoramic shot, use a slightly slower shutter speed and mount your camera on a tripod. Finally, use continuous shooting mode (burst mode) to take multiple photos at once.
