Re: Rodeo, 8000 ISO

The issue was primarily that you had a lens no faster than f/4.5. I was planning to be at a major indoor rodeo couple of days ago but it was sold out (apparently, the best time to be there is to get tickets couple of months in advance).

Indoor rodeo is a challenging shoot. ISO 8000 sounds about right. I was checking out images by a pro using 1Dx at the venue I couldn't get to this year (search Flickr for Will Rogers championship rodeo in Ft Worth). That person was using 400/2.8, at ISO 4000. And nobody should be looking at those images at more than the typical shared size on the web either.
