Yep much appreciated.

I have never shot it before. Will be shooting upwards. Nothing will come between the jumper and the camera.

I will try it on 4 and see how it goes & adjust if necessary.

Just guessing here... probably all the interesting shots will happen at the apex of the gymnast's jump, which will be roughly at the same height jump after jump. Probably doesn't make sense to follow them up and down with the camera. Maybe allowing them to pop in and out of the frame makes most sense.

That said.

You may want tracking sensitivity to be low so that the camera doesn't focus on the background when they pop in and out of the frame. It may even be better to manually focus depending on how consistent they are with their jumps.

I'd probably use Back button AF and just tap it here and there between bursts with settings closer to case #3.

Haven't seen any sports pics in the last couple of pages of the thread, so I thought I'd share. Two of these were posted in the Sports section already, but thought I'd post'em here also.

From the last race I shot...

Thanks I'll have a look at case 3.

Thanks!

I agree with JD...it's a terrific shot. Not easy to get that balance in the exposure but you've done a great job.

Beautiful shots Ben! :cool: I wish there were more landscape photogs in this thread.

Okay Julian...here are two from this week. Sadly, the short days of winter mean I only get out in the evenings!

I picked up a 50L yesterday. I took some quick shots of my daughter this morning as soon as she woke up...

SIMPLY STUNNING!

If this would be a 1 series body, this photograph alone would make me buy it! The rich, bright, brilliant, vibrant, bold, popping color, the razor sharpness, the exceptional skintones, everything! Absolutely PERFECT!! (At least IMHO). This is how I love my photos to look!

And nothing against the 5D Mk III meant whatsoever by my comment. I just love, and WANT a 1 series camera for the built in grip, the ruggedness, the build, and everything else they offer.

I'm speaking solely on the actual look of this image.

This is exactly the type of image (the actual "look" of this image) that I would love to get from a 1D Mk III, 1D Mk IV, 1Ds Mk III, or lottery willing, 1Dx that I will eventually purchase!

Truly spectacular!

Cheers, Julian.

Coolish, one might say, but not TOO bad. Most of the week...frosty mornings and lovely days. Come the weekend...wind and rain.

I guess that's common enough anywhere!:confused::D
