    Moving objects

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

    Predictive Capture automatically takes photos the instant an object enters the camera frame, before you press a button. 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.
