Here's the scenario: You are shooting at dusk or indoors where it is low-lighting. However, you need to use a fast shutter speed because you are shooting fast-paced action, and perhaps you are going to use the continuous high-speed shooting mode (so flash fill-in may not be an option). Lastly, you are hand-holding the camera becuase you are panning with the subject.

Since there are many seting combinations, to accomodate the required faster shutter, in which order would you try the following adjustments? (please place responses in order from top to bottom, top being the first thing you would adjust)

Here are your adjustments, in no particular order (feel free to add any adjustments I may have missed):

1) change to a fast lens 2.8 or wider
2) use shutter priority, and compensate the under-exposure with exposure bracketing.
3) use a higher ISO
4) use a speed-light (knowing you may not be able to use continuous high-speed)
