IMO... 2.8 is too slow to shoot HS ball with the 7d. 2500 is my limit on the 7d. I don't do any processing.. Because I have to upload from the game to the newspaper.

These pics were shot at 1.4/1.6 and ISO 1600. Its probably similar lighting to the pics you posted. That stop and a half is huge with a faster lens. If you could possibly pick up a 85 1.8.. You'd definitely see a difference.

I believe it was 1/400 because I was trying to keep my ISO as low as possible because I just can not seem to capture quality photos without a lot of noise... here is one from the other side of the gym. They are just lousy photos and I am becoming quite disgusted.....

As crazy as it sounds.. ISO 5000 is cleaner than ISO 4000.

You shot at:
ISO 4000
1/400

You should've been at:
ISO 5000
1/500

If you had the 85 1.8.. You would've been at:
ISO 2500
1/640

As some others have said.. 1/500 is the absolute minimum shutter speed. 1/640 is pretty good... 1/800 is really good

Thanks for the info. I've used my 50 1.4 with some success, but find myself cropping a lot. your examples give me a little bit of hope!

I was going to ask you about the 4000 ISO bit...

I'll keep my eye out for a deal on an 85.

In some of those your flash is not in sync, which is why you have the
dark band on the right side....

I think you can get sharp images at f 2.8

Here are a couple images I shot last night in the same gym as post number 1 by original poster and post # 9 by me.

This time I could not get there early enough to strobe, but had to be there for senior night festivities.

These were shot at ISO 3200 1/500 @ 2.8 with Canon 1D IV and 70-200 2.8L IS II

They are no where near as good as the strobed images in post 9 IMO but still pretty sharp with out a lot of post processing.

For comparison, basketball images from relatively inexpensive and unsophisticated equipment, a Canon T2i and a non-stabilized Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 EX II lens. Available light and no flash, with the exposure set from an incident meter reading.

The shooting technique is as unsophisticated as the equipment. Autofocus start and shutter are left on the shutter button, which gets periodically half-pressed to keep the focus close as the play moves up and down court. When things get interesting, the shutter button gets mashed down and the action tracked in continuous shooting mode until the action stops. AI Servo autofocus is used, and the autofocus point gets switched sometimes from single-point center to autoselection for no good reason.
