    I am going waterfall hunting this weekend and need to brush up on my motion capture skills. I have a Canon PowerShot A60 which gives me control of white balance, ISO, exposure, F-stop, etc. I also have some "pre-set" modes I can make use of. What is the best setup for lowlight or overcast captures of fast moving streams and waterfalls?

    Do you want the water to be be stopped or do you want the water to flow in your picture?

    If you want to stop the action, use a faster shutter speed.

    If you want the water to flow, use a tripod and a slower shutter speed.

    Use your tripod.

    Here are two pictures I took on the trip. The first is Brasstown Falls in upstate SC and the 2nd is Yellowbranch Falls also in upstate SC.

    Thanks for the tips!

    I have a Canon PowerShot A60. I love it. If this thing would accept filters, I would be in hog heaven.
