Photography Question

Photographing a Parade

I recently shot a local parade and a few pictures were slightly blurry. I used a zoom lens and 400 speed film. Would anyone suggest using an 800 speed film and a zoom? Normal lens?

  Depending on the lighting, 800 might be the way to go. But I've shot ISO 100 in bright sunlight with speeds around 1/2000. It all depends on your lighting. I would always have 800 on you - just in case. A zoom lens is fine. A wide zoom probably would've helped with the bluriness, but you probably wouldn't have gotten the framing you wanted with a wide compared to a telephoto. Upping your film speed is best, unless you can afford a faster lens.
