Hi all, 

 

Took the kids Go Karting last week and could not get a single decent photo in auto mode that was in focus on S10+.  My old S8 had a sports mode and while not perfect at least took better fast action photos. What settings are people using for fast action shots ? Do I really have to faff about in Pro mode ? Advice greatly welcome 👍

@Markp41: Further to the advice offered by @Lykia, Tracking Auto Focus is a great way to keep the camera focused on moving objects. You can also go to Settings > Pictures > Hold Shutter Button To > Take Burst Shot to increase your chance of capturing the perfect shot. Hope this helps.

You could activate in the Camera Settings "Tracking Autofocus"

Mark - did you try to make the selections in your settings and get it to work on your phone so you can take action shots?
