    The bike picture could have been nice if he moved the camera to follow the guy. It would result in a motion blured background and a sharp infocus subject.

    no you shouldnt always use a monopod. Nobody is shooting with a 400 2.8 here. there’s no need to lug around a monopod so you can shoot with your canon rebel and 75-300 lens. You might as well tell them to use their pop up flash too for daytime games outside.

    agree!!

    why ‘o’ why would you buy a semi proffesional camera body like the d300s, stick a 55-200mm on it and then shoot in sports mode….WHY!?

    haha, you got to love these videos, completely all wrong.

    is that a telephoto lens or are you just happy to see me?

    look at the way he holds the camera :) )

    This video needs to be update and/or removed. I wouldn’t listen to anything in this video.

    this is crap!

  • By Enjoiskateboarding01, November 3, 2013 @ 6:31 pm

    Ridiculous. NEVER use any sort of automatic setting, they’re rubbish.
    They never even talked about aperture?

  • By SavageHardstyle, November 3, 2013 @ 7:14 pm

    I suppose it is alright, ‘for Dummies’, but for Christ’s sake just learn how to use the camera; it’s the only way to get better…

    Such a poor video, half of the “decent” shots are out of focus or have motion blur, no mention of AI servo, possibly one of the most important parts of shooting sport

  • By Creighton Holub, November 3, 2013 @ 8:05 pm

    The NAPP’s (photoshopuser) D-Town TV has better videos explaining how to do this.

  • By locosrayo, November 3, 2013 @ 8:21 pm

    i have aquestion, if the sutter speed is 1/8000 will capture a better image than a shutter speed of 1/2500 ? thank you

  • By miguelgaio, November 3, 2013 @ 9:07 pm

    Infact, NEVER use any automatic settings at all, just learn out to use the damn camera. Its like buing a sports car with automatic gear bx, you will just miss all the fun of making it by yourself, and you will never learn anything at all, and wont get anything done right.
    Thats my opinion at least…why waste money in a entry level dslr if you are only going tu use auto-modes? Stick with normal compact point and shoot cameras.

    There is definitly a proper way to hold a camera, but the rule can be broken if needed. But there is a proper way that you should hold your camera.

  • By theone2225, November 3, 2013 @ 9:58 pm

    no no no no no, never use the “sports” setting. That’s crap.

    Yes… there is a “Proper Way” to hold a camera. and for two very good reasons…

    1. To be able to keep it close to your body to maximize the stability of your shot (even at 1/500 sec) since this guy didn’t suggest using a monopod which you should always do when shooting sports.

    2. SO YOU DON”T DROP YOUR CAMERA. If your camera slips out of your hand (because of inclement weather or sweat) and ends up on the ground, I promise, you won’t be happy with what it costs you to repair your gear.

    LOL :)

    There is no “proper” way to hold a camera. As long as you can make the shot without blur. Just as there is no “proper” way to hold a spoon. As long as you can eat food with it.
