Re: Telephoto for Swim Meets

Thanks for all the tips! I guess a shooting a swim meet is probably one of the most demanding sports to shoot in terms of lighting.

The pictures won't be printed larger than 5x7 but at ISO 6400 the EOS M/70D image quality isn't very good, a little too much noise.

Since I'm on a budget, I'll go with the f4-5.6 lens and see how the images turn out. If the noise is too much, I'll sacrifice the high speed continuous and use the 6D.

Any other advice for swim meet shoot?
