Teamspeed...You are wasting your time. Get out now. People who don't want to get it aren't going to get it. The rest will do a simple calculation that 8fps is .125 seconds which is still faster than anyone here has claimed to be able to react and anticipate. They certainly don't understand that we don't just lay on the shutter and let the camera do the work. We anticipate as close as we can - say down to .5 seconds +/- and capture 3-5 frames around that moment at .125 increments which is a more refined capability than anyone can claim to do with anticipation alone. It's really simple math and if someone disagrees it's because they want to believe what they do and you'll never break through that with facts. Some people just don't science well.
I did the calculation earlier, and it's still no big deal. I base my comments out of experience using and owning two sports cameras, the 30D back when it was still a sports camera, and the 7D. more often than that, the speed was simply too much, and two very similar shots produced no meaningful difference.
I mean that's such a crazy idea right? slowing down your camera so that you dont have to process more than you need. If you look at teamspeeds shots, 0.1 second difference in most of those shots would NOT have broke the image.
"the block" would simply be ripped from the hands
"the hair" would be twisted more
"the catch" closer to the body
ect.... assuming these are all rapid succession shots. The 6D does 4.5 FPS, it's not exactly slow, and the 5D3 does only 1.5 more and well regarded as a sports camera...... yet the 7D does 8fps, and 1D4 does 10?
heck, teamspeed even wrote that he turns down the speed for his 1D3.... that alone is a concession of speed somewhat, and his tolerance is a little slower. Mine happens to be a lot slower, simply because in my experience, it's too much trouble to deal with.
with all this obsession over FPS, why arent all budget aware shooters using sony's SLT A77?
12 fps absolutely crushes any consumer stuff canon makes. This thread is still about the 7D and fps right?
