Digital Photography

If you own an SLR (single lens reflex) digital camera, you will be able to shoot live action sports. The fast shutter speed will allow you to take photos in the gym or outside and stop the action in its tracks. Most consumers own a point & shoot digital camera. These camera will not be able to stop the action in sports such as football, basketball, volleyball etc.

When you initially set up your camera, set the resolution on the highest setting. (best quality pictures) You will store fewer shots on your card or memory stick, but you will have much greater flexibility later on when you print them.
