Shoot low-light sport with a high ISO

Amateur Photographer - - Technique Take Control Of Iso -

13A com­bi­na­tion of low light and high-speed ac­tion calls for a high ISO. Not only do you need a high enough ISO for faster shut­ter speeds to en­sure you can hand­hold the cam­era with­out im­ages suf­fer­ing from cam­era shake, but one fast enough to freeze fast ac­tion. Many sports are played in the evening un­der flood­lights or in­doors, which makes an ISO of 3200-12,800 a com­mon re­quire­ment to achieve shut­ter speeds around and in ex­cess of 1/500sec. This high ISO is of­ten com­bined with a fast tele­photo lens with a max­i­mum aper­ture of f/2.8, and a cam­era that has ex­cel­lent high ISO per­for­mance.
