I would like to freeze motion with my camera ( canon 300d ). I am shooting indoors under sodium or flourecent lights with a 75-300 mm f/4-5.6 III usm lense, and a 550ex speedlight, and tripod. I always seem to get some blurr. Is there an optimum setting(s) I can use to shoot with to give me the desired shot freeze frame shot ? I am shooting from about 20-30 ft max from subject. Thanks

The blur is the result of the mix with ambient light...
Select a higher aperture value (in Av) to block the sodium/fluorescent out and the flash will freeze the action all by itself (provided you are within the flash range)

BTW you don't probably need a tripod if you are using a flash - It's burst is much faster than any camera X-sync shutter speed! :idea:
