PowerShot S2IS Action Settings


Recommended Posts

I've been playing around with my new S2 IS but haven't found any good settings for an action shot. Has anyone found settings that work good?

Look for one that looks like a man running.

The camera doesn't have a pre set action setting, I'm asking if anyone found any manual settings that work good.

I think the canon brand works this way: set your camera at pS (priority speed). then set it to the fastest speed possible. Your S2 can shoot at 1/3200s. At that speed, you will be able to stop movement and shoot sport and stuff like that

Yes, but theres less light

Start off at 1/1000th a second in good light, then adjust from there

of course there is less light since you ask the shutter to close as fast as possible.

that's a balance between shutter speed and Aperture

Or you could set the aperture to the lowest setting (2.8?) and go from there, seeing how its low light your shutter should be fast enough. Set a high ISO to.

indoor will always be the major problem for any photographier and camera.

low light = higher ISO or/and slower shutter speed or/and f/2.8 or/and very expensive lens :/

old camera. thats why. Newer cameras have better settings and will look better overall indoor and outdoors.

most comsumer cameras take "crappy" indoor shots due to small sensors and low light. You really need to go DSLR in order to get good indoor shots in low light. You can always turn on more lamps or use the flash

Is this because you absolutly cannot use your flash indoor for special events?

Outdoor photography is easy, but indoor, well. As Floyd said, is another matter. Very risky (quality wise) stuff.
