      1. Do you have the same camera? On my old one (which no longer works) the automatic setting was super for action shots and on my new camera this setting gives very blurry images. I now use iA (intelligent auto) for action shots and change the shutter speeds depending on whether Eivor and Pearl are walking/trotting (1/200 s), playing (1/400 s) or in full sprint (1/800 s). I also needed a faster memory card otherwise it cannot write the files quick enough. I hope this helps ☺💖 xxx

      2. Mine is the Lumix fz 330. If I get lucky iA works for action shots but the scene setting seems to work well. I think the memory card is fast enough but I’ve no idea about the shutter speeds ;-D Hopefully I’ll learn a little more when I go back to the shop 🙂 xxx
