Lot of great shots! Please tell what lens/iso you used.

Thanks!  These are shot with a 1D Mark4 and Sigma 120-300 f2.8 Sport.  I generally shoot in manual at 1000/sec and f2.8, Aperture set to Automatic.  The Aperture generally sets to 6400, 8000, or 12,800.

Click on any photo to see camera and exposure details. 

The overhead photos are done handheld.  I am up in the rafters of the stadium, generally laying down and shooting through 2x2 foot holes intended to provide access to the lights.

Nice Photos!  And a very cute kid.  Focus looks a little off in some.  Very important to get the near eye as the center of focus.  I'd jump to ISO 200 or 400 here, and get a faster shutter speed. Kids move very fast. 

This is a 7D V 1?  I still have my V1 7D and love the darn thing.  400K photos and still going. 

As mentioned, this camera loves quality glass.  When you can afford it, consider an upgrade.

I am always annoyed by the people who say they added the grip so they can shoot vertical photos.  As if they could not before...  I know some mean more easily, or more comfortably, but then say that.

37
Awsome.  I was pretty ticked when my 1D4 was not included.  Pretty high $ camera to be dropped.

I have a 120-300 sport.  I bought it used and it came with the dock.  Used the lens, very nice, slow to focus, but only vs my 70-200 II.  Used the dock updated, firmware from 1.1 to 1.3, focuses much faster…  Was able to set ups some custom settings.  I'd say get the dock.

You should demand your money back.

They list the benefits.  Its free.  What is not to get?  You get those benefits.  They get a way to send you information to try to sell you more things.  (it's an exchange)
An example of those other things?:  CPS Gold and Platinum. 

is it working?  "and I might upgrade at some point in the future". Hmmmm.

Hi there!

Thanks for reading the part of my post where I said, "Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining - I realize that you get what you pay for - I'm just curious..."

Wait?  You didn't read that?

Bummer.

Hi!  Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed your post.  I read your whole post and I responded.  I disagree.  Statistically it was bound to happen.  Reading up and down the responses, has anyone agreed with you?

What is there to disagree or agree with?

I posted a question.

Unless you're disagreeing with my assertion that I want to know if there is more to CPS Silver than I currently understand, there quite literally is nothing to disagree or agree with.

In actuality, statistically - it impossible to disagree with a question.  The chance of it happening is 0.

I think you're misreading my post.

"but it seems Silver is more or less just about using minor benefits for the purposes of data collection and mining (equipment owned, type of photography, etc.)" plus lots of support for that.  I disagree with that.  My fault, I assumed you'd understand I disagreed with the declarative statement, and all the support around it.

I have pulled a few by wrapping an extension cord around the filter, then twisting that.  Sort of a homemade filter wrench.

nice , what body are you using?

Thanks.  These shots are with a 1D Mark IV.


Nice shots. If you haven't done so already, get the dock and update the firmware. It s faster focusing after the update. Also go to your custum settings and set one of your custom modes to speed priority. That mode is much faster than standard and the accuracy seems fine. That's what I use on bif (speed priority, moderate is view,focus limit 30' up)

Thanks, and Thanks for the tip.  I updated from 1.1 to 1.3 and it does seem snappier just here in the house.  Will yes test more tomorrow.

EOS Bodies / Re: Using full frame lens on crop body cameras ?
« on: December 14, 2014, 11:44:12 AM »
Tony Northrop, any of these guys get way more hits when they take a controversial opinion.  FF lenses work great with crop cameras.  For longer lenses, your only choice is FF lenses. 

Tony Northrop, has said again and again, his favorite wildlife combo is the 7d (now the 7DII) and the 400mm f5.6 (a FF lens!)
