    Moving objects

    Arrow left Xperia XA2 support overview

    When taking photos and recording videos of moving objects, timing is important for good results.

    Object tracking can track a moving object automatically.

    When recording videos, you can use SteadyShot™ to compensate for camera movements and steady the frame.

    Capturing moving objects

    • Try not to follow the object. Instead, find a position where the object has to pass in front of you.
    • Consider changing the exposure to a faster shutter speed or a higher ISO to freeze motion.

    2. Tap More and tap the Object tracking slider to enable.
    3. Close the settings menu. The setting is saved.
    4. Select an object to track by touching it in the viewfinder.
