There are two cardinal rules for capturing great sports photographs. First, know your equipment, and second, know the sport. There are several secondary rules that are just as important and all of these, plus more, are covered in Jeff Cable’s extensive ninety-plus-minute presentation.
Video cameras seem to be getting more and more complex, which can be a blessing and a curse. Even the basic "record-your-son's-football-game" camera seems to have features today that were unimaginable only a few years ago.

They include white balance, shutter speed, and audio levels.
