Fast Action shots (A1U)

does any body know the best settings to shoot fast moving objects?

It reduces motion blur. What problems are you having?

thank you for replying,
actully i'm having no real problems.. i just thought someone out there may know
the best setting for fast action shots on the A1U..
i really like the look of 16mm slowed down... i like doing slow mo's.. i guess
bumping up the shutter speed will help that right?

Yes. Remember though that the A1 features a rolling shutter. It creates these slanted distortions in fast moving objects on the screen. There is nothing one can do about it. I've done some slowmotion shots and they've worked ok with the hc1, but there are situations that will not look so good. Like quick panning in a city with many geometric lines. Shooting out of a car window as objects pass by and such.
