Yes. Fast object are the only problem FOR ME. You can use SPORT mode for fast object but outdoor when the light is well. And not all the time.
The other is OK for me . And, the color is not very well interprieted (to much yellow) but it is not big problem for me.
Try this link

If it does not work try copy/paste adress of these links in your browser. That will work.
Do not think that is quality of the pictures. It is compresed to HI JPEG. But I talk about blur of pictures.
So please comment...

Did you shoot using the sport program with the fast shutter?
Did you try to focus the kids first?

Yes, I was tryed, but pic is too dark. Look at this:
or copy/paste in browser

test1, test2 have setings:
ISO 100, F2.8, 1/80 sec.
test 3 have
ISO 100, F2.8, 1/40 sec.

Does prefokus do something better. I press ones to the end and wait to cammera fokus it and get pic.

did you use the flash in test4?
If you did and this is the result; then ı have nothing else to say...
It really is too dark.What was the time the pic is taken? (morning,noon,afternoon?)
There is one thing ı dont know and that is iso. What does iso do ; can anyone tell? Would changing the iso make any difference in test 4 ?
I personally believe that in fast shutter speeds, camera needs lots of light;and if there isnt, then there's nothing the camera can do,whether it's a sony or a canon or a kodak...Am I wrong??

It is without flash, but it was taken about 17,00. It was still a day.
Even if I use flash it is to far for flash to catch.
ISO ? I do not know.

ISO ? I do not know
see exif info of that picture, picture ISO is in.

2 efe85: ISO means sensitivity of CCD.Difference betwen iso 100 and 200 is such difference in sensitivity that can be compensate by one F number or half/twice s. speed.


ISO100 + F5,6 + 1/30s = ISO200 + F5,6 + 1/60s=ISO100+ F4 +1/60s = ISO 100 + F2,8 +1/120s= ISO400 +F5,6 + 1/120s......

But higher ISO produces much more Digital noise, especially this P series , ISO 400 is useless :evil:
