Re: need help taking indoor basketball photos

One problem here might be that you are using full zoom. You need a faster shutter speed for longer zoom, so this reduces your low-light capability as well. You might be better off settling for more wide-angle and cropping the photo later.

Also, practice your camera hold and shutter squeeze. Make sure you are using the shutter lock (half-press shutter to get autofocus, green light shows). It is amazing how much better your photos can be if you can keep the camera rock steady still.
