Default FZ100 burst mode at the ballgame

Went and saw the Aberdeen Ironbirds play last night (Minor league team) and thought I'd try out the burst mode on the pitcher.
First time I really tried it out. A couple of them go out of focus but I like the effect overall. I'm going to have to work with this some more.

I must say that trying the 5fps with auto focus might be a better option. Thanks for sharing

IMO, all images have very soft focus and a lot of motion blurriness. Colors are washed out, the highlights on the pitcher's uniform are overblown and details are lost. So, I'd say they are OK only in the sense that it captured the moment (say that was your son or husband or a good friend or whoever pitching and you wanted to have that event documented). However, in terms of IQ the FZ100 has failed to perform in this series. Sorry.

looks like the speed was 1/80 of a second. That account for the blurring.

yep, crank the ISO up to 800 next time. Also zoom in or get closer - having a larger subject in the frame will help the camera keep focus.

Thanks for the input. Definatly need to work more with burst mode more.
I thought I was going out of focus but your probably right.. faster ISO was needed.

Higher ISO will help in some ways but hurt in some others. With high ISO you'll be able to increase the shutter speed and reduce motion blurriness. However, the high ISO will reduce IQ, color saturation, image resolution, etc. But, it's worth it a try.
