Default Kids on Trampoline

Shot this today. I was messing around with our FinePix S5000 today trying to get some shots of the kids doing flips on the trampoline. Got a few good ones. This one he is almost straight up and down. I set it to the action setting and took it. This is all new to me so any sugestions would be great.

Well, actually not to be a party pooper... but have you checked with your home owners insurance company? My step-daughter is a competive gymnist so of course she had to have a trampoline... well, turns out most insurance companys have rules regarding trampolines... Ours had the following:

1) Must have net surrounding tramp
2) Must be located in a fenced in yard.

As far as taking tramp photo... well, i've only taken a couple with my little Casio... I will be taking more with my DRebel come spring!

What camera are you using? Looks like you got some good stop action!

Perhaps get right down with them?

The first picture was shot with a Fuji FinePix S5000 on the sports setting. I have not messed with the manuel setting yet, because I dont know how to use them yet.

well your off to a good start!

Captured a good moment! How is the shutter lag on your camera? (how long from the time you push the button until the camera actually take the picture? LOL)

LOL, UM, QUIT POOR! LOL I am guessing some where from 1 to 2 seconds. Took me 14 tries to get him straight up and down like in the photo!
Is there any way to fix this, using a manuel setting?

And that my friend is why I invested in a Canon Digital Rebel...

One of the top reasons I switched to a DSLR... shutter lag... My DRebel for all practical purposes has none.. I have a Canon G2 that takes great picture..... of stationary objects! LOL! Sounds like the your FinePix is the same way... push the button and then wait! As far as I know this seems to be the nature of things when dealing with Point and Shoot kind of Digital camera... So sorry, there is know setting to fix it...

Oops! Completely unintentional! I've corrected my typo... altough..

Loved my G2... thought it was great... but shoot a DSLR for a couple of days and then try the G2...

Don't quote me but I seem to think the shutter delay on the G2 is over 1 second but the DRebel is like .2 second (that's POINT 2)...
