  1. SI, AP etc. photographers have strobesmountad in the ceiling and use triggers to fire them so the court is lit to when they shoot. Daaaaaah!

  2. What about canon ef 200mm f2.8L ll usm?

  3. I saw your video and it's lot of information you provide us specially sport photographer shooters. I am going to buy a lens but before that I wanna ask you one simple Q? What is the different between " Canon EF 70-200mm F/2.8 L IS USM " & " Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS II USM ", both are has Image Stabilization capability. So which one should I buy. Please suggest me.

  4. Can you shoot with the Manual mode settings (as you suggested) and lock your auto-ISO maximum to, say for example 1600?

    For exmaple (On a Nikon)

    ISO sensitivity settings (IE: 100)
    ISO Sensitivity Control: On
    Max sensitivity: 1600?

    Would this work, without going too high as to get noticeable noise?

  5. Thank you

  13. Hello , great video. I also looked at your test of nikon d7100 and canon 70d , which recommend to photograph and film figure skating ? ( high school gyms ) , Greetings from Argentina and sorry for my english.
    pd: Spanish subtitles is a lot would be appreciated :)

  14. Thanks for the good video Mike.  For basketball, a parent can typically get pretty close to the action…sideline, corner, and behind the baseline.  In these locations, a 50 or 85mm lens is plenty.  And when bought in 1.8 aperture versions, they are small, light, sharp, can bring in a lot of light, and are very cheap (compared to something like 24-70 2.8, or 70-200 2.8 zooms) .  I am Nikon-centric, so for me that's an $80 (used) 50mm 1.8D, and a $300 85mm 1.8D.  Those lenses help TREMENDOUSLY re: a dollar vs light-gathering capability.  

    Bottom line…a used full frame camera (D700? D600?) with a 50 1.8 and 85 1.8 can get pretty darn good indoor high school sports pics.  Below that (won't be nearly as good at low noise / high ISO), something like a used D7000 (important to get the focus motor built into the body to take advantage of older Nikon "D" lenses…so a D5300 (and below, for example), should be avoided if possible.

    Also, I think even 1/500th can be too slow (for varsity level play)…though I can see that's mandatory with older cameras whose decent ISO performance only goes to ISO 1600 or so…1/800th and above works well, and means that camera-shake-induced blur is almost non-existent, which also means a lens with VR is not necessary, further cheapening the glass portion of the budget.
