EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Major IQ advantage of FF?
« on: November 07, 2013, 03:45:37 PM »
Ok, I know we're talking APS-C here, but have you ever shot at ISO 3200 and ISO 6400 with the 1D Mark IV?  Completely useable, if not underexposed.  I think this more speaks to Canon's flagship line manufacturing though, vs. the general category of APS-H sensors.  I have a lot of night football game shots at ISO 3200 with that camera that are probably not much different than the 1Dx shots at that ISO, same situation.  This is where I think a 1D4 with 300 f/2.8 might be a better choice than a 1Dx 300 f/2.8 but with cropping in post.  I could be wrong.

Michigan State soccer at Akron:

Great timing!

Thanks Northstar.  I haven't gotten to say it, but your sports shots are great. 

I actually didn't do too well at this game.  It was so incredibly cold and windy, and we had just had 65 degree weather, then suddenly down to 38 and windy.  My hands hurt and I guess I just wasn't "into it."  I only had about 37 keepers. 

Oh well, next time right?  :)

buy the new sigma 120-300 instead. it is cheaper with almost as good IQ and AF speed but with the added versatility of a zoom. + you'll save £2300 which you could spend on another red ring or two like 50mm 1.2 & 135 2.0

And of course, you're joking right??

Tennis again.  Shot with the 300 f/2.8L I IS lens through a chain link fence!  The spectator and photographer must not have been in the minds of the designers of this tennis facility!

Nothing too exciting from tennis last night yet.  I edited a grand total of 6 photos!  I have to head out to a football game now, but maybe I'll have some better tennis shots and some football ones to share later.

I crop and spend time in pp.  Why?  Because I can.  I can make my photos look the way I want them to look, with less effort.  It's called using the technology you have available to you.  I COULD frame a volleyball shot perfectly, if I needed to.  But instead I leave a little extra room and then crop the way I want.  Why not?  In film days yes, you had a limited number of shots and you couldn't edit.  But that's not the case anymore, so who really cares?  If you get the composition almost correct, and the exposure almost correct, due to our technology, then yes it'll be "good enough" with some pp.

I love digital.  A football wide receiver catching a pass mid-air with small DOF is commonplace these days, when way back when those photos were rare.

Thanks rpt, appreciated.

This shot is nothing special, just wanted to show you the thunderstorm coming up behind out of the west.  The race just got over and it started raining.
I would not say anything special. You captured beautiful athletes there. :D

Thanks! 

Hey, did you notice the shift to orange??  When you upload on here, does it do something, like with contrast or anything?
