I have just bought the neat little camera and I am very impressed. The thing I can not find is any Sports Mode setting. I like to go to Rally car racing and would like to take fast action shots, anybody got any ideas???

thanks in advance

From what I can see, this model gives you no ability to control aperture or shutter speed, even via it's Best Shot Scene Modes.

This is typical for a camera this small (very little manual control, and missing features like aperture priority, shutter priority, etc.).

Hopefully, the light will be good enough for you to get some shots. I'd try panning with the cars to reduce motion blur if shutter speeds are slower than you like (that way, the car will be sharper than the background).

If light is marginal, you could also increase ISO speed and the camera should use faster shutter speeds. But, I'd increase ISO speed with caution, as this will also increase noise.
