Hi Wiebe.
Thank for your kind comment.
These were all taken with the 7DII, some with 70-200 L II, some with the 100-400 L II.
Basic settings, ISO 100, Shutter priority, between 1/30th and 1/60th aperture roaming free around the 22 end of the scale! :LOL:
All the exif is viewable on Flickr if you want detailed info.

I’ll have to look through the files for the 1DsIII but I don’t think I carried both that weekend.

Cheers, Graham.
(y)(y) ... I didn't think of looking at the Flickr sources, my fault :oops:

Excellent shots Graham. Love the 917s :D

My only suggestion is that, if you don't like hanging out at f22, to try adding a CPL or ND to the kit. I've added them for 2 reasons - on a really bright day here I couldn't get below 1/125th without over exposing and it can help avoiding the dust bunnies in shots by keeping your aperture to f8 or below. I try and keep a clean sensor but the 1Dx2 gets dirty quickly.

Hi Roo.
Thanks for the kind comment.
You know an ND and / or CPL is one of the things I keep meaning to try, I forgot last weekend too, we went to a track day with London Camera Exchange /Sony hands on day, no shots from that, I managed to set the raw CF card to small coarse jpeg accidentally while fiddling around with video :mad: so nothing worth even trying to edit! :rolleyes: The SD is an EyeFi card that sends small jpegs to my phone!
Just goes to show you should even check settings that you don’t ever change. :unsure:
I used both for a sunset time-lapse the other day and it worked well.

Cheers, Graham.

Ouch... but it is something that still happens to all of us. I was shooting ice hockey last weekend and, during a period break, they had a couple of guys racing pedal carts on the ice. I dropped the shutter speed to 1/200th to get some motion in the wheels but then got involved in a conversation and forgot to bump it up when the action started up again. I shot the whole period at low shutter :oops: At least it kept my iso low :LOL:
