Hi all,
My first topic...how do you shoot a photo with a moving car? I have tried using the fastest shutter speed and it still comes out blurry ( the moving car) or the image is too dark.

I've taken some excellent still photos with this S2 IS camera, but I want to try some moving objects.

Thanks for your infos.

I haven't tried it on a fast moving car, but how about setting the IS to panning, and continous mode to high-speed. Pre-focus on where the car will be when you want to take the shot, and then pan with the car as it crosses the focus point while firing off a burst of shots.

Also see the section of the manual on second curtain flash (p.107) - they use a car as an example.

If it works, let me know :-)
