No image in sports mode

\015 When taking pictures of sporting events with my Nikon D50 , I tried the SPORTS MODE and CONTIUOUS mode,so as to capture some running action. The result was no picture and/or a blacked-out image. What am I doing wrong. I read the instructions but seem to be missing something\015

Answers :

Sports mode gives you a high shutter speed. Continuous just allows the camera to keep taking pictures as long as you hold the shutter button and keep the autofocus moving.
You need very high Iso capabilities (6400+) and very fast lenses (f1.8, f2.0, f2.8) to shoot indoor sports and night games under lights and stop motion without a very powerful flash system. Standard consumer stuff just can't do it and even with a good flash it cannot work very far.
You can set the camera to night mode and it will give you your highest iso and slow shutter speeds but you will end up with motion blur.
I shoot a D300($1600) and a 70-200mm F2.8($1900) and I can just barely get away with it. To do it right cost about $8000! I'm now professionally shooting just to pay for the next camera. Hobby too Hell in a hurry.

My Fuji s2000 always shoots picture that are blured. I have tried many settings and different exposures however I keep getting the same result. What can I do ? The worst mode on this camera is the auto mode, I can never get a clear indoor picture. This camera takes beautiful pictures of flowers/nature and all outdoor photo's turn out beautiful it is the indoor photo's I have even tried the sports mode for when people move but I still get a very blured image

Found the same thing and I think the answer is the opposite of previous suggestions. The s2000 is truly awful at anything above about 400ASA The degree of pixel binning it uses just makes the pictures look terrible. Force the camera to use 400 or s ... Fuji FinePix S2000hd Digital Camera

Dark Images At some point, the images from the camera became very dark in automatic mode. Previous to that, the images were perfect. I have checked all settings many times and changed back to default settings. Nothing has seemed to work other than to change mode to "P" and set for extra exposure. Thanks.

Even in automatic mode, camera still lets you pick what ISO to use. If ISO-Auto is OFF in camera menus, this can give some dark images. Press and hold ISO button and rotate command dial to give a higher ISO, or turn ISO-Auto on in camera menu with cr ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera

Canon Vixia HV30 - I have been reading a lot about it's much touted optical super zoom image stabilization but it either does not work the way it is supposed to or i am doing something wrong or it is another of those overhyped features that does not measure up to the real world scenarios. From the manual i understand that In auto mode - the image stabilization is always on. In Program AE mode, you can turn it on or off. I have tried it both ways but i don;t see any perceived difference in th
