For you baseball shooters, learn from the pros.
« on: April 19, 2009, 08:34:59 PM »
I though I disagree with his equipment brand choice :)
I was very fortunate to learn a few things from this and a few other pros in the past couple of years while shooting some games. I liked this link for the exif info. Notice the iso's and shutter speeds.

wow, those are some really nice shots. I cant believe he achieved those shots at such a high shutter speed and high ISO. I shot my pics on a bright day at much lower shutter speeds and ISO was at 100. I'll play with a high ISO and shutter speed next time out. Thanks for sharing

I should add except for the A900 owners the rest of us are at a disadvantage to a full frame sensor. Also Sony lacks a little in higher ISO setting compared to that other brand he uses.
With my old A100 I was very happy with ISO 400 or 800 at shutter priority 1/1600 with a 2.8 lens. I will be experimenting with higher ISO with my A700 which so far I see much better results than the A100. What he taught me was a different way of thinking towards shutter speed and compensating ISO. Were I was used to always trying to keep the lowest ISO possible and sacrificing shutter speed even if it meant blur.

That is exactly what I thought. With it being mid 80's that day and no clouds in the sky I figured there was too much light so I low ISO would be well suited. I don't think I would ever have considered bumping up the ISO on a sunny day. Next time though.
