LOL, this was my 2nd try, my first being the other series I posted from Saturday, however I have shot a lot of sport and practised slow shutter panning on a couple of different things (you will find some horse racing which I took with a slower focusing lens while I was in the US 2 weeks ago). There are no hard and fast rules for the settings as it will depend on the speed of the subject, the distance away you are from the subject, how much of the frame is filled by the subject..............

However I have found that in shutter priority settings between 1/80 and 1/160 work well on the longer shots and when I was closer to the action using the wide lens.This was cut down to 1/40 for the starts and 1/60 under the trees. In general when shooting sports in bright sunlight I will under expose by 1/3 otherwise whites get really blown out, however a different cameras metering might not need this.

All I can say is practise practise practise!!! I know that each time I shoot a sport/activity my shots get better as I learn more of what works and what doesn't.

Hope this helps!!

Mark
