Welcome to the Forum. We're pleased that you dropped by.

(1) There is the Sports/Action Mode in the Scene Modes
(2) You can use Shutter Priority and select the exact Shutter Speed needed.

I am sure that you will find those items in the Owner's Manual. You see I often write a "Beginner's Guide" for various cameras to assist folks. Users, in a few cases, do not find the Beginner Guide very useful, because they have not yet mastered learning the camera's basic features.

That is one of the first elements, of learning your camera. Once you learn how to use your camera's basic features, your photos will become much better, and additional learning will be easier.

I have had my Z981 for a month or so now...love it. I also went out and had to buy a Sony w370 to keep in my pocket, my old one got scratched up.
To Figure out all the scenes and buttons and such? Play with the BUTTONS!!!! That is the fun of it...sit down...with a fresh battery...and turn the camera on...and go through all the major things...for instance:
on top there is a large turn dial...which has most of the 'where to go' things on it! P= for program, A= aperture, S = shutter, M=manual, and one for sport mode, a figure running...
Also, here is the Url for the Extended Users Guide from Kodak...

Hard plastic. Feels a lot lighter than expected from the photos/showrooms when you pick it up. Not sure how hard the plastic is though but I guess that if you drop such equipment it doesn't matter what's on the outside, rather than how firm are the internal parts and whether they would survive a ground crash.
