Sentences are your friend. :)

Panning just takes practice; here are the settings that I start with:
- use shutter speed priority
- set focus to point to center dot
- set focus mode to AI Servo
- vary the shutter speeds while panning (I'll try 1/500-1/60)

ok thanks but is the camera moving when you pann? are you moving with the target or do you focus on the spot the target will be passing by or how does that work as far as capturing the picture /subject ?

Very true....also, does PPL stand for the word 'people'?

Experiment with both techniques. Your movement or non-movement controls what is sharp. Shutter drag is all part of the effect obtained.
