Motion Issues


New Member
I have a D50 and am using a Sigma 28-300 lens and I am having some real problems getting clear images with any kind of motion.

I have tried the auto setting as well as the Sports setting and outside (for soccer) the auto setting did a pretty decent job. Inside for hoops neither has worked.

Any thoughts?

I strongly suggest that a monopod will be a great help -
Also try panning technique, this enables use of a slower shutter
speed since the camera is following the motion.
I have tried this at Brands Hatch kent motor racing.
