I don't think it's harsh, as there is something called common sense :wink:

Could you guys be any more helpful?

Troy, what mode are you shooting in?

I think you will be much happier in "A" mode. If it's dark, turn on SSS (flip the switch) and then either set your ISO to AUTO to start or try something like 400, 800, or 1600 ISO depending on the situtation. You should be able to avoid most of the motion blur in this way.

yes i agree with it but some replies if its not intended for jokes are sometimes insulting....

Well then to end up the argument I would recommend not replying if you think its obvious no need to.....

And In the contrary you don’t like to ask question if you already know the answer.

But peace be with you!!! :wink:
