    water park

    Took some photos at a water park yesterday. I was shooting shutter priority set at 1/1000 and using a 7o-300 zoom lens. I was disappointed that about half of them came out blurry. I'm guessing that given the lens and subjects that I should have used a faster shutter speed. Am I guessing right? Paul

    1/000 of a sec would stop 90% of normal action. I'm thinking with the shutter set that fast the aperture would have opened up to let in more light so shallow depth of field = blurry shots.
    Try going back to the park with aperture priority set to 1/400 and compare...

    Your focus mode could be a problem. If you were in af-c mode with the default of release priority, you need to be sure focus was achieved. In that mode the camera would let you trip the shutter even if it was not done focusing if you were a little quick on the button. If nothing seems focused, this could be what happened. Maybe post some so we can see.

    What, exactly, was blurry though... Was the subject that was, presumably, in motion blurry while the rest of the frame was sharp, or was the entire frame blurry and out of focus including the moving subject? Also, what focus-mode were you using? AF-C set to "Release Priority" will allow the shutter to fire even when the camera has not achieved focus-lock; it's up to you to confirm you have focus lock before taking the shot when using this AF-Mode.

    This is why example photos are helpful; we could probably tell by looking at one of your shots, and the EXIF data, what the problem most likely was.

    1/1000 would have stopped almost anything in a water park. I am betting of missed focus. Try posting a few so we can see the EXIF data.

    Re: water park

    I would say that is out of focus, not shaky. Almost certainly a result of being quick on the shutter button with release priority set. A few fixes... pause briefly while the shutter button is halfway to give the lens time to focus. Or set focus priority. You can set release priority or focus priority independently for af-s and af-c. I think the default is af-s set to focus priority and af-c set to release. So see if you are using af-s or af-c and set it for focus priority. Menu A1 or A2.
    I must have a really good camera.
