Do you have any tips on how to take pictures of fast action sports, like football, at night. I have a Sony Mavica CD400 and do not know what settings should be used.

    I have a canon 10d. I shoot sanctioned auto races at a local track. As you may imagine the lighting is poor and the cars are passing me at about 90 Mph. I use a Fast lens (Sigma 70-300, with f/2.8 all the way through) and bump the ISO to about 2000 without a flash, or 400 with a flash. So try bumping up the ISO.

    Hope it works
