    Re: Women's basketball

    Thanks, Andy.

    I wonder, as a newbie, even in M mode you would use AF-C, instead of MF to shoot these sports photos?

    Again I am learning. Thanks for help and sharing.

    Yes, I use AF-C with single point focus area and back button focus.

    "Again I am learning"

    Same here. I had forgotten that I raised the EV value up on a previous shoot until I was editing these photos.

    @Andy,

    How would you expect (or compare) the outcome if you change to use P mode with auto iso ON (still use AF-C, BBF, etc)? Thanks

    I don't know anything about the other modes, I've never tried them. My wife uses auto ISO with manual mode and likes it.

    @Andy,

    So in the sports shot, you would be the one to set up exposures (iso, aperture, speed). Now for shooting moving subjects knowing shutter needs fast, yet there will be various moving speeds of different targets. Is there a rule or formula to determine how fast the shutter speed should be? For example, basketball player, ice hockey player, horse racing, swooping eagle, moving bird on the ground, hummingbird, cat, running dog, wild animal, speedy boat in the water, etc.

    With that basketball game I tried to keep the shutter at 1/640 - 1/800, but looking back I see one was at 1/250. Not sure why I did that. The best way I've found is to take some test shots to see what is needed. It's better to have too a fast shutter speed than blurry images.

    @blackstar Let me explain a little further. I chose the settings for the shot below based on several things. The light was poor so I wanted a wide open aperture. I figured 1/640 shutter speed should freeze the action. I adjusted ISO to 2200 and it showed being a little under exposed, but looked OK.

    As far as hummingbirds go, I've given up on trying to freeze their wings when they are hovering. For swooping birds or speedy boats, the subject distance has a lot to do with it; the further it is from the camera, the lower you can go with shutter speed.
