Action, action, action. This is when the SLR technology comes in handy. Capturing the moment is the challenge. However, using Canan's 20D enables 5 frames per second which usually provides enough opportunity to get just the right shot. I believe the best pictures show a crisp view of the ball......stopping it in mid-air. Also, the more players in the air the better.
