Re: FZ200 - Very poor results in hockey rink today

Also just came back from an indoor hockey rink shooting photos of my grandson. Had to pump up the ISO to 800 and stationary shots were OK (ie when they were facing off). However, lots of noise - have to run them through a noise reduction program before processing. I think I could get up to 5x7 size printouts. Getting action shots was darn near impossible - I got lucky on one or two. Tried 2 and 5 shot bursts, single burst, AFS as well as AFC. Not sure if this camera is a good one for indoor low light action shots - might be asking a little much from a $600 camera.

Afterwords went to a conservation area to ensure camera continued to work in cold weather as my last camera was returned as it didn't like cold weather. So far it is working better than the 1st camera. I have had the "power on and power on camera" message but only once.
