Step by step Freeze the action
Follow these tips to get sharper telephoto action shots
Switch to shutter-priority (S) mode and select a sufficiently high shutter speed to freeze the action. This typically varies between around 1/250 and 1/1000 of a second, depending on the speed at which the object is moving.
02 Auto ISO
To guard against underexposure (dark images) when using fast shutter speeds, select Auto ISO. Under insufficient lighting, the camera’s sensitivity setting will automatically be boosted by just enough to enable a correct exposure.
03 Continuous drive
Releasing the shutter at the critical point can be difficult in action photography. Select highspeed continuous drive mode and continuous AF, and shoot a rapid burst of several exposures for the greatest chance of nailing the shot.
