When I take action shots, is there an adjustment I can make so the pictures come out?

Hi! First of all, at this camera, you cannot set the shutter speed, for "freezing" the actions. But you can set the ISO. The best ISO is 100 at this camera (in case that you have plenty of light, in case that you don't have, try increasing the ISO till 400, or simply set the ISO to Auto Mode; it will set the ISO for yo… see more Hi!

But, the ISO 100 is the best, because you can have the better texture, and you will see almost no grain in the photo, when you see it at the PC. For action shots, it's better to set the ISO at 100-400 and with the Flash On (it will appear as "the flash always fires"). Tray out this and you will see the results. In a lot of cases the shutter speed sets automatically 1/100 to 1/1250, which i think its not bad, because in action shots you need to capture the motion and you don't want to have blurry images.
N.B.! These settings are available, when you switch to P (Program mode). OR try to take photos in Full Auto Mode, it should capture it, but if not, try the things above. Take care! Thank you for asking. see less

Once you turn the camera on you push the center FUNC SET button. A navigation bar shows up at the left. Scroll down starting with the P and it will show you all the special settings you can use.

Yes there is - if you choose a higher ISO and shutter speed, you'll freeze the action. That's the beauty of this camera - that those are so easily adjustable!

Yes, you can change the knob on the top of the camera to "kids and pets" (picture of child and cat). This will help to capture fast moving, action shots.

With my canon cameras I always opt for using the sports/kids modes. In this camera you have the high speed burst too which is really good and you can always try the slow motion video and then capture from there. It all depends on how fast the action is.
