Default camera on moving subjects (g3 camera)

I've just seen pictures (taken on a g3) of players playing football. When I take pictures of people walking fast they turn out blurred. How do I take pictures of moving subjects? Or should I use a different camera app?

thanks

I am seeing this too. Took a look at the camera settings, but didn't see anything that would address this. I thought the laser-focusing was supposed to make the camera very speedy in taking pictures.

Thoughts?

Laser autofocus makes it speedy to focus. The shutter speed defines if moving subjects are blurry.

The only thing to change on stock camera app is to set HDR to OFF (it's auto by default). Maybe this will help, if it's using HDR on these photos.

Default camera app in burst mode works just fine - press and hold shutter.

Also, make sure your outside on a bright day. Put the sun behind you (so that it's shining on your subject).

Any camera will struggle to freeze an object in motion if it's not bright enough.
