Hello, I have had the Powershot S2 IS for a couple of years, but now I am at the point
where I have kids in volleyball and football. I know this camera can not take perfect pictures with blurriness while taking pictures with lots of movement. So, can someone tell me what the best setting are for this kind of activity. Any help would be appreciated!!!
Thanks Jennifer

Since no one has answered yet, I'll give you my thoughts.

I would set it to Av with the largest aperture, raise the ISO and see what shutter speeds you are getting and whether they are fast enough to have pics that aren't blurry.
If you have software to reduce the noise, that will help.

If you will be zooming, which I assume you will. Your camera will be shooting at something like F-5.6, regardless of your aperture setting. This is because of the increase, in focal length.

But go ahead, and set the camera to AV (F-2.8) anyway. ISO to 400, that will be probably be the lowest ISO you can get by with, to obtain the shutter speed you will need. Of course you are going to have considerable noise, so really it's time for an upgrade. Your ambitions, have now outgrown your present camera.
