Thought many of you would enjoy this link about capturing the 2014 Winter Olympics;
http://gizmodo.com …hers-capture-s-1521746623 (external link). I don't doubt that some of you are doing this as this is being posted. (Not sure if this is the proper Forum category for this link?)

Great post. Learned a lot about the process and having 4 cameras primed and ready to go is something else!

Very good read...Do you think this is a little over kill.??
From article.."To put the change as starkly as possible, Mainardis offers this comparison: "Divide 1 million photos by a 36 exposure roll of film." By analog standards, today's Olympic photo agencies are plowing through nearly 28,000 rolls apiece. The powerhouse professional cameras photographers use these days, like the Canon EOS 1DX, are capable of shooting up to 14 frames per second. That's a finished roll of film in under three seconds."

A little spray and pray should get you the shot....??? what did photogs back in the day of film do when they had to cover the Olympic's with film and manual focus...?? Spray and pray..??...NOT!


A lot of Canon gear=300D & 1Dmkiii, Lens and some studio gear,
WL x1600 etc.

Whatever it takes - those images are stunning. ;)

Thank you for sharing. I enjoyed reading the article. I wasn't really surprised with the pro photographers' processes. A lot goes into getting amazing images of a worldwide event.
