There are many different kinds of sports. That's why sports photography can't be explained in one sentence. In sports photography, it's all about capturing the right moment. Whether that's capturing a race car, an impressive goal or relaying an emotion: the moment usually only lasts a second or even less.
The enthusiastic sports photographer has to be able to control the shutter speed and aperture, and of course the telelens and a quality tripod shouldn't be missing from the selection. However, having good equipment doesn't mean you produce good photos. There is one common denominator between all sports: speed. You could choose to freeze-frame an instance of a movement, or clearly depict the whole movement. Check out our tips, read the interviews with the professionals and get to know the various disciplines within sports photography!

Action cams are small, compact and lightweight video cameras that you can bring along anywhere. Thanks to their extreme wide-angle function, you can capture virtually everything around you. Action cams are water, dust and shock proof, making them perfect to bring along on holidays, mountain bike rides or extreme sports. In September 2016, Sony introduced the FDR-X3000R as their answer to the popular GoPro action cam. Our colleague Joucke brought this action cam along to see the southern German Lenggries.
