It's not that hard...

Honestly, I don't photograph moving objects much at all. With the XP1, I just switched to continuous, and tried to move the camera with subject. Now, I would never count on it to capture a "once in a lifetime" moving event, but I wouldn't trust my 5DII to, either (mostly, due to lack of skill).
