For everyone who complains about the 1/30 sec auto shutter speed...

Lots of people have complained that several Sony cameras choose a shutter speed of 1/30 sec in various auto modes, when they'd have preferred a higher speed, even if that needed a higher ISO. Unlike some other manufacturers, Sony doesn't allow the lowest auto shutter speed to be specified.

So I tried a little experiment: just put the camera into Sports Action scene mode and, sure enough, it'll pick higher speeds and ISOs. This would seem to solve the problem for many people: rather than picking auto or P modes, just use Sports Action.
