View Full Version : Action/Moving Shots

19-08-2011, 7:43am
I bought a Nikon D7000 with a Sigma Lens. I have active children and often take photos of them in Auto Mode. I've attempted it in Manual mode, but I just can't seem to get it in focus when they move around. Does anyone have any suggestions please?

If you're having issues with the focus you'll need to swtich to continuous-AF (I think that's what Nikon call it) in your focus settings. Once this is turned on the camera will automatically refocus as they move around.

When you said you used auto and manual mode, do you mean Auto-focus and manual focus mode, or auto/maual shooting mode?

When you try in manual, what settings are you using?

Lots of questions before we get to the crux of this one I think..

Indoors or outdoors?
Which Sigma lens?
What metering, spot/matrix etc ?
VR on or off ?

I reckon the best idea is to post an image or two so we can see the problem and check the camera settings on the attached EXIF data. :D
