Follwing are some URL links to the volleyball shots I took this past summer with my FZ10. I found it easiest to take in high speed burst mode.

The FZ20 works great for hockey...even from the cheap seats!

Hey Pritch, that's an awesome shot. What camera settings were you using? I suppose it was pretty bright in the arena with the white ice.

Thanks! It's a new rink with very little ice-level access, so I just set up on a tripod at the very top, above the seating, set to "Sports" mode, manual focus, no flash, and let burst mode do its thing when the play came near the net. I've read that aperture priority mode at F2.8 would be the best way to shoot hockey with the FZ20, but I haven't tried it yet (I've only had it a few days).

The conditions at that rink are relatively bright for indoors, but still nowhere near bright enough to use the high shutter speeds hockey really needs. My son has a game at an older rink tonight, where I can get down to ice level, so I'll give the flash a try then.

Note, I did resize the image for the post, then cropped, put it through the helicon filter, and ran PhotoShop CS' "auto levels" on it (which removed a yellow hue from the arena lights).

I really like seeing information like this, its nice to not only know what was done in photoshop but why and what the photo looked like before, it gives people alot better understanding on how to fix flaws that show up under certain circumstances, very informative thank you.
