This rarely used substitute had just made a huge play in the state championship to help establish an insurmountable lead - here he is subbing back off the court, one can only wonder how proud / happy he really felt to make a play that counts...

Fantastic timing! What the beep happened here that made them look back with these expressions?

You can see the OOF ball being served to them.  This is the receiving team - I tried to catch the ball in flight coming toward them (away from me) before they started moving, but I was standing further from the ball / net than I wanted, and ended up catching the players in full focus and ball OOF instead. Actually came out better this way I think. 

Processed in B/W for effect....

Umm… Should his arm do that?  :o

At 1/1000, a lot can happen that we don't see in real time .  Always makes me appreciate how hard they hit. Some of his serves launch at over 60 mph...

Lenses / Re: Anyone upgraded from their 24-70L to 24-70L MKII?
« on: April 30, 2013, 10:07:30 AM »
Upgraded as soon as it was available and NEVER looked back. Sharpness significantly better, contrast and overall color rendering also 'cleaner' and more natural (less flat).
Zoom lock is a plus (usually), and I prefer a slightly tighter focus ring (especially when doing videos).

Updated the firmware, ran a few lenses through FoCal, and went shooting this weekend - no problems at all.

Still semi-automatic or is it fully automatic yet ??

Learning to love the 50/1.2 on my workhorse 1D-X ... autofocus a little slow c/w 24-70 II, but still useable and the extra stop(s) are appreciated  :)

I just purchased the equivalent RRS foot for the 200/2 and love it! Seems more stable, is definitely 'sleeker',  and my hand fits better between the foot/monopod clamp and the lens body.

Lost our light at the end of the day - it was 45 degrees and this was last shot before the kids went off to the Prom so I apologize for underexposure but note the fringing / chromatic aberration along the bridge.  Didn't notice it till it was uploaded.  Fortunately Prom parents don't notice/care either  :)

EOS Bodies - For Video / Aputure V control
« on: April 19, 2013, 09:16:49 AM »
http://www.aputure.com/en/product/v_control_usb.php

Just picked up this electonic remote to help me with my focus pull while shooting video / volleyball games.  It has 4 presets, which should work well for where on the court I typically shoot (service, digs, sets and kills).  I have tested it on my 5d3 (1dIV and 7d) with a variety of lenses, and while when it works, it works well, but occasionally freezes and needs to be turned on / off to reset. 

Anyone else try this...??
