Tennis pictures from a dark tennis hall...

I tested the R5 with the RF 20-200 on a tournament. The tennis hall was dark and the light quality was under all criticism... Here are some picture.

Re: Tennis pictures from a dark tennis hall...

very nice shots! Last time I took some tennis pics with my 5DIII, my setting was ISO 3200, 1/320s, f/2

Looking at your EXIF your tennis hall is almost 4EV darker than where I took the pics. Good performance from the R5

Thank You so much for Your kind comment! yes, this hall was very dark indeed and the R5 gave results over my expectations. Both the file quality and the AF was surprisingly good during this conditions! Being able to get larger prints with good result from this hall is another bonus... Have a nice weekend!

Re: Tennis pictures from a dark tennis hall...

Very nice set! How are you liking this combo compared to everything else you’ve shot?  I’ve not been able to shoot with mine much, but look forward to it.

Hi, Thank You so much for the kind comment! To answer Your question honestly during the  period of the “Honey moon” with the new camera could not be unbiased so take my comment with a grain of salt now... I have been working with quite a lot of camera system and recently I made a lot of rational selections and I am reduced my equipment to the things I like the most and I am using the most. I have just 2 systems now... The Canon and the Hasselblad. The R5 is at this moment is my most exciting instrument because I can use it on so many fields. I usually taking sport pictures with my EOS 1D x MK III and the 400/2,8 but I wanted to see what this camera could do on this field. I used it for football and tennis pictures and I do love it very much. The AF and the crop ability are 2 things I really appreciate. The files are fantastic and they can take a lot of “punishments”... The RF lenses really are unique peaces too... MY MK III is becoming the “bad weather” and back up camera even for sports in the future... At least this is my feeling now... Sorry for the long rant... Have a nice weekend!

Hi, Thank You for your comment! Yes, I did it... The AF is a bit slower but extremely accurate  with less “jumping” to the background instead of the subject... The files are fantastic and so is the incredible resolution too... I hope Canon will make a firmware update to allow different FPS with silent shooting too... I do not always need 20 FPS... Lovely camera for general use including sport too...Have a nice weekend

thank you, you explained it very well! I’ll be able to test out the R5 more this weekend. I had also been through several camera brands including Sony and Fuji X and GFX. That MF is special but had to sell it when 2020 happened. I invested in the R and 70-200 but haven’t used much this year because of events shutting down. Sold my Sony for the R5 and am happy that I can invest in a system long term that has great lenses. Just wish it hadn’t taken me this long. Would I feel the need to get back into the GFX? Probably not once I get into the system more and use it more and if it brings out the great colors of the 5DIV.  Then I will definitely be very content.

Hi,

Just one remark! Since I got my R5 my Hasselblad X1D II is just "sleeping"... You hardly will feel the need to go back to Fuji MF...Have a nice week!

one thing I could say about the 5DIV was it seemed to match the Fuji very well and impressed me how close it was. The only thing that was a tad issue was the shadow recovery on the Canon Dslr. But canon had great color, resolution and pop which shared the same qualities as the Fuji. They say the R has the same but updated sensor of the mark IV so I would hope the mirrorless would hold up very well in that regard. Thanks for your comments and comparisons

Hi again, Do not be afraid...:-) the file quality of the R5 is extremt good and it can take a lot of punishment... I am telling this even if I was and I am delighted with the Hasselblad files... The R5 is so good...Have a wonderful evening!

Re: Tennis pictures from a dark tennis hall...

I like your pics and have looked at them again and again.

I wish to know your take on shutter speed choice when shooting tennis videos. Is this an exception where we could break the 180 degree rule? My pick would be 1/320s. I wish to capture pics from the video. At 1/125s I would have too much blur.

Hi, Thank You so much for Your kind comment! I am not a "video guy" so the video part of your message I can nor comment... As far as tennis pictures concerned I am trying to keep my shutter speed over 1000th of a second if I had no special purpose in trying to make some unsharpness on the ball or the racket... My tennis pictures outside in good light I am rather above 3000th of a second...Have a nice day
