    I was asked to cover a recent provincial hockey championship this past weekend, by one of my high school teachers.

    I was one of the people doing stills, and had had good luck in a similar rink before, with little post-editing, but this time I had more trouble.

    I only have an HP PS945 digital, as I typically use film, so I was limited in that regard.

    I tried shooting at 1/360 shutter, and 200 or 400 ISO and it came out nicely, but quite noisy.

    What are the ideal settings for an amateur, presumably not-well lit hocky rink?

    I can post my photos if need be.

    If your photos are stopping the action and aren’t underexposed then your settings are probably fine. There are good noise reduction software packages out there. I use Noise Ninja with my (very noisy) Panasonic FZ30. I’m very happy with the results.
