basically, you need higher shutter speed, use Shutter Speed priority mode instead, 1/500sec and above, you need to use wider aperture and higher ISO setting if lighting condition is not so ideal.

Hi

Thank for your advice. I have a problem with adjusting the high shutter speed while taking the pix with maximum aperture. Pix always under exposed and blur even in light lit up condition with high ISO setting. Picture quality is far far away with those people shooting the high spped F1 night racing. Pls advice as I am using Nikon D2H.

I think it is perhaps not a matter of panning.
The way TS describes it, at the lens's widest aperture (which would be f/2.8 in his case) and 'high shutter speed while taking the pix with maximum aperture. Pix always under exposed and blur even in light lit up condition with high ISO setting.', there is still problem.
It feel that it is a problem of:
1. Exposure (Pix always under exposed) - maybe shutter speed too high, higher than what is actually needed, or ISO not high enough... all these the TS hasn't given more information.
2. Focusing problem- (... biur even in light lit up condition). This is possibly a technique issue as focusing could be the cause of the 'blur-ness' here. Again, will require more info on the circumstances of the shoot, and all the camera settings.

Well said...
You could try maybe a slower shutter speed? keep an eye on your exposure values as you do this...

Also a fill flash might help depending on what u shoot...

Also are u trying to freeze the action or create motion blur as in a panning type shot?

Hope this helps mate!
Cheers

I think you should set it to burst-mode.
But I'm not sure whether will burst-mode work with spot metering?? :dunno:
