J1 - Settings Advice - Children Playing?
Nov 24, 2012

One of the main reasons I bought my J1 system (10-30mm and 30-110mm) was to take pictures of my little girl and her friends.  Generally, they are playing and think the concept of standing still simply not going to register.

Playing with my J1, I have started using the following settings:

1) Continuous Shoot - allows me to catch them actually facing the camera

2) Shutter Priority - I got OK results using 1/250th, but the ISO needed to crank up.  What are other people using to "stop" children playing?
