Re: EM1 II examples. Rocky

Rocky: wow! The capture of that kick to the head in pic #2! Very impactful!
Years ago, with the 4/3 E-1 (at a blazing 3 fps) I captured a soccer ball being headed from about the top of the penalty area. It was a well-inflated ball — but the player hit it with such impact that the ball deformed into his forehead for a split second.

It was a wide crop, so not worthy of hanging on the wall but it was a beautiful moment. Sadly, the shot went in... to OUR goal!
