However, the only thing that any camera is to share any size or brand name is the thirst of light. Most consumer cameras come with lenses that are more than adequate for traditional imaging. However, indoor sports are by no means standard.
Two major problems arise in the gym. First of all, although a gym seems to glow brightly in our eyes, the camera is in fact quite obscure. The second problem is the distance; we have to look at a certain distance from the action so our zoom lenses get a lot of exercise. Unfortunately, this is where indoor sports have the greatest photographic impact. We start out in a light that is hardly enough for the camera to work, and then reducing the lenses to further reduce the light.
The best way to handle this treatment is to cheat the camera. This trick works on most digital compact cameras and all DSLRs. The first thing to do is ISO (film speed) is about 400. This increases the sensitivity of the camera, making the most of its available.
The next step is to set the camera in Av or Aperture exposure mode. On Nikon's digital cameras, Av mode can be activated in the top control button or in the compact camera menu system. This is the mode that controls the aperture settings and you want the lens to be as wide as possible. Remember, this is the smallest number of aperture scales in the 3.5 circle. With this option, let's say the camera always uses the widest, most open aperture of the lens. The camera must respond to the fastest shutter speed selected by exposure to exposure. Using faster shutter speeds, we have the best chance to stop blur.
The last thing to turn off the flash. The built-in flash is only 10 meters away, not good, and the flash will slow down the camera while charging after each shot.
Some words about warning: Not all cameras have Aperture Exposure Mode. There are many examples of this year's ultra compact. Then, using the settings described here, there is no guarantee that the images will be successful; the lighting of each gym is different. The photographer may be able to use a lower ISO value, or ISO is more than 400 to accept grainy images.
