night HS football playoff advice requested
Dec 3, 2010

In few hours at small college stadium.
Am stock photographer so some action experience.
Not shooting for news but for my own stock -- no pressure.
Shooting more sideline & crowd color, but also want tight generic game action.
Limited to Canon 100mm f2.8 on Canon 7D (=160mm?)
Stadium lighting + fill flash probably = 1/160sec @f2.8 ISO 800.
Have sideline-endzone access.

Am guessing if I'm always 10 yards downfield from hike, about one in four plays will fill my frame at some point...?
Is 1/160sec fast enough? Should I go ISO 1600? Too much noise?
Any advice appreciated.
regards jg
