Hello all,

Can someone help me with some DX6490 tips for shooting sunrise, sunset and action shots (e.g. sports, moving objects like cars, children, animals, etc).

For sports, set the ISO as high as you can stand, and then shoot in aperture priority mode using a wide aperture. This will force the camera to select the highest shutter speed it can, which will hopefully be high enough to capture your moving subjects.

For sunrise/set, do the opposite. Select lower ISO, and an aperture that is open enough to give you the minimum shutter speed that is needed at that particular time. Also, you should consider bracketing your exposures as well, as this type of setting can often fool the cameras automatic exposure settings, especially if you want to capture foreground detail.

You also need to use a tripod whenever possible taking the sunrise and sunset photo's
and go hand held with the sports and kids as you'll be panning a lot just to stay up with the action!
