Sports mode – Canon EOS D30 User Manual
The built-in flash does not fire in Sports mode, even if it is raised.
If the shutter speed indicator blinks, the shutter speed may be too slow to keep the
picture from being blurred by camera shake. Be careful to hold the camera steady
and press the shutter button smoothly, or use a tripod. (The shutter speed indicator
still blinks if you use a tripod, but camera shake will not be a problem.)
For best results in Sports mode, use a film speed setting of ISO 400 or faster.
For sports photography we recommend using a telephoto lens of 200-300 mm.
This mode is used for sports photography and
capturing fast-moving subjects.
