So I got a spiffy new camera this spring and was super excited to take it to horse shows. I took it to Rolex and came home with kind of mediocre results. It is a Nikon Coolpix P100. Its almost a DSLR since it can go on manual mode for just about everything.
I was wondering if anyone else has this camera, or one like it, and what manual settings you use for the best action shots. I know it all depends on weather, time of the day, etc...but any ideas on shutter speed? In mine the background is nice and crisp and the horse is out of focus. I'd like to switch that around.
