600D/t3i Focus and Exposure related questions?
Oct 13, 2012

I  bough t3i few weeks back. I am playing around taking my kid pictures with 18 - 55mm kit lens. Trying to find out a best way to take pictures in low light (Kids playing indoor soccer). While using shutter priority, camera seems to be limiting maximum possible faster shutter speed.  Is it going to control both shutter speed and priority based on some minimum exposure expected?

With manual focus, does focus changes from front/back instead of side to side while rotating the focus ring. Any simple techniques while using manual focus with video (moving focus ring with respect to subject movement).

I am shooting jpegs. Using std pic style with reducing contrast to -2 and increasing saturation to 1. Sharpness is set to 4.

Following are some of the pictures. Please feel free to provide suggestions to improve.
