Kids night time hockey practice in pouring rain. (High ISO)

400mm, 
f2.8, 
1/1000,
ISO 12,800.

Great capture Menace. Love the water action and back light. 12fps helps  ;)

Cheers. 12fps and weather sealing! No way I could have captured the image with my 5DIII in that stormy weather.

Lovely image menace.

Thanks Dolina - I was wondering how the image would have looked if I had your 200 2.0?  An extra stop of light!  G.A.S!

Menace, hockey in New Zealand??  I would never have guessed that.

Great picture Menace

Thanks candyman - both the photographer and the camera was absolutely soaked, not to mention it's winter in down under.

But it was great fun - loved it.

Oh yes (field) hockey is pretty popular down under - my 8 year old belongs to a local club and loves it.

Reviewing the different forum areas, I don't see a good place for a discussion of post processing.  There is a "Technique and Advice" area, but the three categories seem to exlude post processing.  There is a Software & Accessories forum, but this seems a bad fit.

How about a new section under Technique and Advice: "Post Precessing"

Good idea

Looks yummy, Where the milk?

Here is mine 1dx + 85L II @ f1.2
Nice job. How's the 1dx tracking been treating you with f/1.2?

With f1.2, I haven't try to shoot in Ai servo much. Keeper is high in single mode.

With 70-200mm f2.8 IS II and 400mm f2.8 IS II Ai servo is wonderful with 1dx. Full burst 20plus RAW, keeper rate is around 18plus.

There is something special about 1dx AF system(i'm not sure what it is), it feels much more responsive and more accurate compared to my 5D III.

I think the AF in the 1dx uses color information for tracking and also can drive the USM motors harder and faster. I wish I had AF point linked spot metering. :P

Ditto.

Likely the higher voltage helps with the USM motor, I do notice it esp on the 85L. 

Cheers.

Good catch Northstar. It's a wonderful camera for fast action.

Nice one.

Ha ha - not the 400!  well not on a mono pod anyway. He is pretty small for his age so can just about handle the above rig.

P.s he is always keen to show my photographer friends how he uses the back button focus!

Lovely Menace, but it's a double edged Sword, started both my Lads on Photography around the same time, 8-10 years old, my eldest went Video & now uses a Sony 3ccd 200 Video Camera with a Gates Underwater Housing, my younger Lad sticks to Stills, uses a 6D with a Seacam Underwater Housing, best to start saving for their increasing interests about, now.

But it's great fun to see what you started develop into a full fledged passion in your children.

Now if I could only get my wife interested.....then the next major upgrade wouldn't need quite so much.....stealth.

Same here with my wife too - she only wants to take selfies on the phone camera and is pretty happy with results - sigh!

I don't do any video myself but might get my kid a Gopro (or similiar) once he is ok with basic still photography and let him decide which one or both he wants to carry on with.
