I know the deadlines are fast but at these type of games there are runners for the photographers.

There are runners and how cat5 cables to hardwire the newest cameras (1dx and d4) directly into each agency's network.

Doesnt go straight into the network, but yea, a ethernet cable carries files to an editor who pics the good frames, captions, crops, tones and sends then to the agency - less than 5 mins from click to the website

Its much easier filing pics rapidly if you have an editor/tech nearby - when i started at the paper i sat on the sideline at a few games, working on pics for the photographer, so he coukd ckncentrate on shooting

Heck, these days, everyone demands that kind of turn-around on the photos. Cell phones and social media have greatly changed people's expectations. Shooting youth sports, the parents and kids want the photos the same evening. Wait a few days and most lose interest.

Same for the Olympics. I guess they have ethernet cables running right up to the half pipe or where ever.

Here's a link to the Olympic Process: http://gizmodo.com …hers-capture-s-1521746623 (external link)

Tis the means to meet the standards of the day. I read these and just think "Oh, to have the budget to do such coverage." I just have to settle for my 15min for first upload 1hr for the remainder process times.

X-E2 arrived today, already been making use of the wifi to phone to social media, a year ago I'd have (and probably did) cry gimmick from the rooftops, but now it just seems the pace of doing business; photo mechanic needs to develop camera firmware to keyword the image as elements come in and out of frame for instant turn around.

I read an article a while about about the ovwerall process. But basically it was pretty simple. A room with card downloaders and taggers. Another set of people to cull the images and a few to decide what goes up. A runner would head to a section of photographers, collect the cards at whatever status they are, full or not and run them back. Repeating this process as many times as necessary. There were of course several runners, etc.

Here is an older video
