Shots from the Aquatic centre. The action shots were taken with 70-200 + x2 at high ISO. I am very pleased with the results given the distance we were from the subject.

Great images given the distance!

#4-7 shows the placement of these cameras.

Really cool perspective. Thanks for sharing these. Did you need to conceal the camera to get in?

I was really nervous about taking in the gear. I took a lowepro mini trekker each day with components individually packed. I figured that as the X2 was on its own, it would just look like another lens on the X-ray. Seemed to work, I had no issues on the 5 times we went.

Next shots to post are the Equestrian Dressage. :)

Ian.
