  • I've started using them for ice hockey - one setting for fast shutter speed, high ISO, the other for slow shutter speed, lower ISO. Normally, I used to only use manual mode because I know what ...
  • Is it possible your camera's JPEG processing is flattening out the differences? Canon has Auto Lighting Optimizer, Nikon has Auto D-Lighting, maybe that is bringing the two different images closer ...
  • If your main worry is weight, try other types of straps to carry your camera. I use a BlackRapid RS7, which allows your camera to be down around your waist. This makes it much more comfortable to ...
  • I've used both the 7d built-in wireless triggering and now use Yongnuo 622c triggers. The camera IR triggering is not reliable beyond 2m and I was often using 2.5-3m, so I bought and have been ...
  • Added 1 photo to their gallery
    Pondering the impossible beauty of the Grand Canyon sunset: Mohave Point, Grand Canyon
  • Got this lens for sports, but even still birds are a good test for quality. 7d II, 300 f/4 at f/4, 1/2000, ISO 400 Abingdon (UK) robin
  • Is that Eliot Logan by any chance, the Metromint in this message I'm replying to? I used to race on the track with him over there. I like getting low and close, will post some of mine when I get a ...
  • I did much better the second time around - ISO 5000, used the 85mm and 70-200, exposure time 1/800s or faster for most of them. There is no glass, only green netting, in the spectator areas ...
  • I did something similar with a used lens I just got. One trick I found was to check that the lens isn't completely messed up by using the Liveview focus. Worked well, though I had to put in a lot ...
  • Thanks for the feedback, guys! I think I can go maybe one stop with the ISO, and might try to get/borrow/rent a 70-200 2.8 and try to get the shutter speed to 1/800-1/1000 next time. Also the 85 1.8. ...
  • I did my first hockey game last weekend as well. 7d II mostly with 70-200 f/4 IS. Restricted to penalty box (nets everywhere else). I mostly shot ISO 3200. While I can watch a game and know what's ...
  • I didn't realize that even the quick guide was so big. It is probably that one, it is the same size as the one that came with my 7d and appears to cover all of the features, but I don't think it ...
  • Was there only a quick start guide or something? I got a full manual in the UK, along with software CDs, in a plastic-wrapped packet.
  • Interesting thread. I do something similar in Lightroom, though I keep everything. I first rate photos that I'm likely to publish including some duplicates/maybe keepers (1 star and above). I then ...
  • Replied in 7D mkII buffer
    I've noticed you mentioned the 1D IV, another camera I'm looking at for shooting bicycle racing. How do you think the 7D II and 1D IV compare for high ISO and AF accuracy? I realize you haven't ...
  • Actually, I'd be interested in knowing how the 7dII compares with the 1dIV - for AF speed and consistency and high ISO image quality. Both will be about the same price (1dIV used, of course). I ...
  • The Tokina 11-16 is built well and has the biggest aperture of the ultra wides, but the Canon 10-18 has wider range, STM, and is cheaper. Unless you shoot at night/astronomy, the Canon is probably ...
  • Good stuff! This will be a great replacement for my current 7D, which will become a very capable backup (better than my 20D).
  • The ones with ice are wonderful - such great colors! Jun
  • One feature that makes a big difference in being able to follow focus well is USM. I have an STM lens but have not used it for bicycle racing photography yet, but it may work well enough - anybody ...
