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.

Thanks Northstar.  I hear you on the tough shots/angles.  In 3 sets I probably had 54 keepers is about all, and that's with two bodies!!  Oh well, what can you do?

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 2 5d3's or 1d x

If you want a backup body, and you can afford it, I always suggest the SAME body as your main one.  This way you have one system, and can switch seamlessly.  I used to have 1Dx/1D4 combo, but the systems were different enough that I saved up, sold the 1D4, and got another 1Dx.  It was well worth it because now I can just switch cameras instantly and start shooting. 

For your question, I suggest another 5D3 if you need a 2nd body.  If you don't need the second body really, then I wouldn't spend your hard-earned money.

Hey guys,

First, thanks.  It wasn't easy in there.  Those lights are horrible!  I was ISO 3200-5000 all day, at f/2.8 and 1/500s. 

The lens was simply the 70-200 f/2.8L II IS lens.  I had to stay around the court mostly, so I chose that lens vs. a prime.  3rd set I said screw it (thank you Big Ten Network) and went in the stands anyways, and shot down on the net.  Unfortunately MSU won 3-0, so there weren't many more opportunities for action photos. 

This Friday October 4th, I'll be shooting the All-Ohio cross country championships, Saturday "Big Red Day" at Denison football, and the 12th MSU at Ohio State women's soccer.  Lots of travel!

Thanks, great shots to all in this thread!  Some of them are just profound!

EOS Bodies / Re: An Update on the 75+mp Camera in the Wild

It is absurd to have to add a flash just to get a little fill flash or photo-trigger from time to time. At least Nikon is gracious enough to supply that.

I use a TS-E 24L II.  The graciously-provided popup flash on the D800 interferes with full rotation of the PC-E 24mm.  Granted, that's not going to be an issue for too many people, but personally, it would annoy me.

yes but  Nikon  have also high iso and DR + megapixel

But is that helping them sell more dSLRs than Canon?   ::)

Funny story about the more MPs - I was out shooting yesterday with a couple of Nikon shooters.  One was looking to upgrade her main wedding camera, and she said she called NPS and the recommended getting the D600 and not the D800 for shooting weddings.  When even Nikon recommends not getting the D800....  The other Nikon shooter recommended picking up a used D700 instead of the D800.

spreading lays and myths-why?
 we can take the cars examples  again, Toyota are the best  selling  cars company, I do not drive Toyota and several with me who wants a better car

So you heavily cropped them and are surprised they are grainy?

Touche'.  I was just surprised to see how much grain there is at 100%.  People constantly RAVE about full frame being the king of low light... and I don't disagree... but I feel as though the rumors would have it be so much better.

You're confusing then, I'm afraid, loss of detail, and grain/noise.  2500 photos I'd edit with just a 30-40% NR setting in LR and it should look find, maybe bring the exposure up a bit.  But when you crop so much you lose detail, and that's what you're doing.
