Stephen,

Based on your results I now can't wait to try out sports mode. Just have to wait for some hawks to come hunting overhead. When I turned the camera to that mode, I see that some features turn off or are limited. E.G., it appears one can only use AUTO ISO, not choose one, and TC is shut off allowing only the use of Digital Zoom. Am I right or am I missing something? Are there any other limitations I missed?

Thanks for posting. Wonderful image, especially for a P&S.

You are right. Sports Mode also overrides the jpeg quality setting and limits you to Fine...you can't use Super-fine. And it pushes both ISO and shutter speed to higher levels to freeze action. But, hey, it works!

Hello, VisonLight,

How did you find out that "Sports Mode also overrides the jpeg quality setting and limits you to Fine...you can't use Super-fine. "

I would like to check what is disabled in various settings.
