I have never shot hockey at anything past 1/250th. But I do agree with everything else.

You can always check how your doing with the monitor which we never had in the past.


Set the APERTURE AT 2.8, USE CENTER FOCUS POINT ONLY, AF C, MANUAL ISO, and start bumping the ISO up until the shutter speed registers at least 1/500 second. The white ice on the floor will fool the meter, so set exposure compensation to +2/3 as well.
