Was shooting basketball last night and overheard a conversation by the togs beside me. Older tog to younger tog "I can shoot sports at a lower shutter speed with my full frame camera as the larger sensor does not show as much movement as your crop sensor" Hmm, haven't heard this before, pretty sure it is BS. Comments?

From my experience, it is bs. I shot a high school basketball game last week using my 6D with slower (around 1/320 sec then 1/640 sec) and the iq difference was huge. 1/320 was pure crap even at 1/500 I had many keepers.

I shoot with a 5D mkIII, for basketball I will not go below 1/500. and that's at an ISO of 10,000. Anything below 1/500 is going to be very poor at the HS level.

^^^^wow for night street hockey i set my camera up to f1.8, 1/500 and iso 1600... 3200 is useless for me on my 85mm.... wow would love 10k iso!!!!!!!!

even at 500 there is motion blur at times when the kid has a wicked slapshot.... sounds backwards to me... he should be able tp shoot faster at higher iso.

I still use the 1/1mm rule with my crop bodies. No problem here.

I won't go above an ISO of 10K, so at times I have to drop to 1/500. I'd rather shoot faster.

Good article in the recent issue of Outdoor Photographer about sharpness, with side by side examples and a chart of the rule for crop bodies

Yeah that's the rule, for your minimum to minimize blur due to camera shake. For stopping fast motion you're obviously going to want more than 1/85.


Also that rule gets broken with IS, but that's only for static objects anyways.

I don't really care about those articles, if it looks good on my screen and prints it's fine.

I've been shooting NCAA D-1 basketball with the 6D, 70-200 f/4 at ISO 3200, f/4, and 1/500 and get razor sharp shots even with a team that plays an exceptionally up-tempo, fast paced game.

Below 1/640 of a second my images just aren't sharp enough. Only under terrible lighting do I go below 1/640

What he OP stated has pretty much no merit whatsoever. I would not even ask that dude for restaurant recommendations.
As far as rules or guides for minimum shutter speed while hand-holding, those rules have nothing to do with stopping subject movement without motion blur. There are plenty of guides on the web for stopping motion of everything from walking to race cars.

Shutter speed is shutter speed regardless of full frame or crop. BS...

Absolutely - I'm one of those older 'togs and I think the statement is bs also.

Now this is a stretch....perhaps what he meant was that with a FF vs a crop, on the subject of field of few, further objects will appear to be "less blurred." Well, yeah since they are at a greater distance until you crop or zoom in and then you see it is still.........BLURRED!

I agree - I wouldn't take a restaurant recommendation from him either :lol:
