I wish these weren't so small. But, I think #1 & #2 your best shots of the four. You've left room for him to run. You kind of clipped his tail in #1. Black animals are very difficult to get any detail on. The horizontal is tilted slightly making him look like he's running uphill. Were these shot freehand?

When you take these shots, are the lcd screen image continous like video or do they pause per shot?

I resized them to post here with exif intact. Is there is a way to post larger images? Handheld because I have to "follow" her around the yard with the camera (she's wicked fast - 2 year old Irish/Gordon Setter). The ground actually slopes the other way - I must have really been "tilted" the other way. Using Top 7 burst mode, 3 or 5 frames/sec.

If I remember correctly, the display pauses slightly, depending upon frames per second setting.

Most folks here upload them to a share site like pBase, Image Shack, Picasa Web Album, Photobucket. I've had good luck with Picasa W.A. It's cheap at $5 a year for 20 gigs of space and more if you need it. I also link my images in from my own webhost gallery. It allows me unlimited storage space for backing up anything I want to backup, I host a small forum, my gallery, and a lot of other features. $45 a year. The limit here is 1024 pixels on the longest side. Anymore than that and the forum software will resize it for you and it ain't nice.

How this? The grass & trees in the background seem to be in better focus than the dog.

in day time, to avoid blurr shots, you can use 800 iso easy i think. 400 will be fine.
