It would be interesting to see an SLR manufacturer create a real DSLR system camera with interchangable grip sides, finders, etc., but it won't happen.

Shoot square medium format?
post #15063 of 29539
so im not the most knowledgeable person on lenses much less photography equipment BUT is it possible to shoot sports like soccer with a 70-200 2.8 MACRO? i tried to do that today with a borrowed SIGMA 70-200 macro and missed so many shots

is it user error or is that just the wrong lens for the job?

average setting was ISO 200 f2.8 1/2500 in sunlight with single center point AF servo

It's just "macro" because it has a higher maximum magnification than usual. it's not a 1:1 macro lens.

i still dont understand why i missed so many shots though. the best shots i got were the ones really close to me within 50 feet. i dont expect it to be sharp across the field at 200 since its maximum focus on the readout was 25 feet.

idk maybe it was the shallow DOF, i know i was holding it steady and kept my focus points on the player and even used the expanded focus in case maybe i was not perfectly holding it on the player for the servo to follow. still was not getting good clean shots

and i have shot with a canon 70-200 2.8 USM but never had this problem at 2.8

i guess its user error.

Servo? Center point only. 7D has good AF, but it's no 1D -- that is to say, when I used one, I didn't find the servo hit rate to be very good unless using the center point, in which case it was a bit better than my 50D.

No can do. Back in Merced now

Although I did manage to get some nighttime shots at LACMA with the lights display, and went to Griffith for sundown yesterday.

yea i did all that and i feel like the AF is pretty solid i do admit its not perfect. mine does very well for basketball but im closer to the players in that sport.

im just really disappointed. i dont think i want to shoot field sports anymore unless its with my own glass which i dont own anything long enough to capture the action. i just cant figure out if my problem is my user error or sigma or the f2.8

either way unless they pay for me to rent a canon telephoto im not shooting soccer for them anymore because my sigma experience today was terrible because like i mentioned canon 70-200 @ 200 2.8 i didnt have trouble keeping focus much less missing it in servo :|

yup first mistake i realized at the end of the game. i asked if he calibrated it to his t2i and he didnt know what that meant either.

------

shots that i wish werent missed and i just dont understand why

two more examples of missed shots where center focus point is dead on the player both shots focus is dead center on the player's stomach...





i give up.

----

decent photo slightly cropped same settings as all my bad out of focus shots no adjustments other than crop
