What Lens/Body should I use?
« on: September 04, 2013, 07:54:38 AM »
I am going to be shooting a local high school football game this Friday night and I cant decide what I should shoot with when I'm there.
I was thinking about using the 6d with the 70-200 2.8 and using the 60d with a 24-105 for when there is a lot of light.
When it gets darker outside and when I am relying on the stadium lights I would just put away the 60d and the 24-105 and just shoot with the 6d and the 70-200 2.8 and not worry about the fans and the side line pictures as much.

Thanks for the help deciding.

Given the gear listed in your signature, I think your plan sounds like a good one! 

You might consider the sigma ultra wide on the 60D for some close-up, upward-looking, wide-angle shots of fans (intentional perspective distortion), just for fun.
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

You might consider just take your 6D and leave the 60D at home given the lenses you listed.  I was at a high school game last Friday night and my rebel had a hell of a time with action shots (or rather any shot) once the sun went down.  I gave up in the 4rd quarter, but my results are due to the gear I have.   I guess I don't see the need to carry the 60D unless you are not wanting to change lenses during the game.
