I went to the US Pro Criterium Championships in Downers Grove Illinois this weekend, some great racing. Anyhow while I was there I took quite a few pictures wiht my digital camera and a few turned out but more than often they ended up blurry. I have control of the different focus, speed, f stop, iso settings, etc ... not that I know how they apply to fast events like cycling.
So, I was wondering if people could give me some pointers so that my photos don't end up so blurry next time. What speed, iso, f stop etc do people use? How should I varry these under different conditions like downhill and uphills etc? Also, my camera has a ton of differetn focus settings but I couldn't seem to get it to focus on the bikers, instead it got the background perfectly in most of the pics.
FYI have a Coolpix 4300 with tons of CF storage. Thanks for the help everyone ... I look forward to your replies.
P.S. I'll try to post a few pics once I sort through all of the rubbish.
