Some of my favorite from this year so far...

*Edit - All ISO's were actually 8,000 but that wasn't an option.*

The 1D4 does very, very well at ISO 8000! Still a very good camera even at today's standards, it will be one of Canon's legacies.

Totally agree. Last season I shot with my 40D & 50D at what most would consider unrealistic ISO's for those cameras, but I think it's just proof that the right exposure and some half way decent post processing it's still possible to get very usable shots.

That being said though, I honestly wish I would have made the jump to the 1D IV sooner. It's not the holy grail, but it does allow me the ability to shoot at the settings necessary and require no post processing (aside from my basic preset) anymore. I get my settings figured out, then don't have to touch them the rest of the game, and when I get home, I upload to Lightroom, apply my basic preset, which is lens correction, and slight NR adjustment, and then I export to jpg directly to my site, and a smaller resolution that is more Facebook friendly for my FB page.

Examples from each of those cameras (These images were definitely edited in Lightroom, beyond just a simple preset):

I've posted these in another thread but wanted to add them to this one too.

These are taken with an 85L.

Big Frost, good action captured here. Very nice. Consider leveling your horizons (You'll always find that as one of my personal tips, to which Scott Evans, great photog, "adjusted my awareness.") in photos #2 & #3. I like the sweeping view in photo #4. (What if you cropped it on the L side to about where the red shoed player is sitting? I think that would bring the viewer in just a bit more.) Curious, what's going on here? Technical Foul Shot? Another thought, looks like these were taken while standing. How dynamic would each capture be from a lower perspective, kneeling or sitting (if possible)? Just some thoughts.

With some of the discussion about the Canon 1D Mark IV in mind, here are three more captures utilizing its services.

Yeah, I certainly did not take the time to level my horizons, since these were for fun and for the kids. Unfortunately in the gym I was in, kneeling or sitting is literally impossible, as I had to be mobile as there is only three feet between the baseline and wall, lol, and to make it worse the cheerleaders took up almost all of that real estate.

Thanks for the tips it's something I should be doing!

these are all amazing... it really shows that you guys are professionals and on a completely different level than me lol... the only item you have better than me seems to be lighting (and better equipment in most cases) which I know is huge but still... amazing.
I hope to be able to get into some gyms this year that have similar lighting to at least see how my shots come out or compare to these.. It's not really fair to compare when my gym is dingy and dark and I cannot go higher shutter speed or higher iso limited by my body? at least that makes me feel better to say this :)
in any case, thank you all for sharing. this all helps us beginners a lot!

After shooting with DSLR, this just doesn't feel right to me, but I will post it. My S7 at ISO 500-800 at a middle school game. Yikes! I left my real camera at home darn it.

Honestly, take the fear of gear limitations and block it, and get to a game, set your ISO where you think is too high, get a good shutter speed, and work on your timing and shot selection. Anticipate the action. Get home, put them on your computer and hit them with noise reduction first, so you stop worrying so much about the grain and noise. I think you'll be surprised. I know I was. I'm not saying your final images won't be noisy, but I'm sure you'll end up with better results than you think. If you don't have a lens capable of an aperture of f/2.8 or faster, grab the 50mm f/1.8. Great lens for indoor sports so long as you can be relatively close to the action.

As Frost said, the 50mm f1.8 stm is cheap and if you can sit along baseline or behind basket, very useful for getting shots at the near end of court. I've found I've been able to focus with it a little faster now that I have the 80D.

I'm totally in your situation -- not a pro, just shooting my kid and his team playing, dealing with gyms that range from decent light to awful. I'm just working on not underexposing and looking at what people on this thread and others (and something like fredmiranda.com's sports forum) do, and learn from that. many of them have the advantage of shooting kids big enough to get close to the rim. :lol:
