I got my camera on Thursday, and other than a few shots around the house that night and last night, today was the first outing with it. It now has 267 clicks on the shutter.

The outing was to a varsity high school volleyball tournament. At that level, the play is fast, and movement is not easily predictable like that of a runner. In my opinion, it is one of the hardest sports to shoot, and really tests the AF system. I've been shooting the sport for about five years with a 1D Mark III.

For this outing I shot ambient, 14 fps, manual exposure, Case 6 default settings, AI servo, manual point selection with expansion to the surrounding 8 points (slightly above center in portrait orientation), AI servo 1st image priority set to focus, and AI servo 2nd image priority set to equal, AWB under fluorescent lighting, and RAW. I usually shoot in bursts of 2 to 5 shots.

First sequence using the 135 F2L. Target player was #2, middle hitter. ISO 8000, f2.5, 1/1000. The images were imported into LR4, and the exposure was brought down 1/2 stop because they were overexposed. No other adjustments were made, and they were exported and converted to JPEG at the largest file setting. These are clicks 131 - 135 on the camera.

I need to make a correction.

Both bursts were at 12fps, not 14.

I was wondering how you managed to maintain such sharp focus between shots with the mirror up!

Thanks for the clarification.

QUOTED IMAGE

So nice to see a hummer at a flower instead of a feeder! Very nice shot!

Which lens?

Thank you. These flowers are growing wild in my backyard and I think the hummers are addicted.

I used the 300 2.8L with the 1.4 extender.

Solved my imagebrowser problem :) - downloaded the latest off the support site and it now works but it's a cruddy 'modern' program :( I've still got ver 6.6 on my system and that's a lot better as you can compare multiple images. The new one seems to be set up to just dump shots onto f/b and twitter :(

Now I've come up against the AFMA bug :( - let's hope Canon sort this out sharpish as I like the ability to have orientation specific focus points... I found the bug is not consistent as it is OK on some lenses and doesn't work on others :(

Fantastic image Bigcountry. Since you posted this shot, I assume you were able to run faster than the guy standing next to you. ;)

The 1DX WB is really good and far better than my 5D2 which didn't cope at all with indoor sports shots like yours. Great to know, thank you for that.
