First 2 games of the season for me. First season shooting with a 1DX as well. I gotta say, the AF system seems to handle the net better than the Nikon D4 does. I still need to experiment with Case settings though.

All of these were shot with a 1DX and either a 400/2.8, 200-400/f or 70-200. C&C appreciated as always.

For which shot? I'm constantly moving all over the arena when shooting volleyball. It's a pretty large arena with an upper level so plenty of nice angles to shoot from. I spend the least amount of time shooting on ground level.

Really Nice! Love the colors. 1, 2, 3 and 7 and my fav's. Having multiple levels to shoot from makes it so much more fun shooting. Must have some great light here. Thanks for posting. Looking forward to your next set.

Thanks! And yes, the lighting is great. They updated the lighting this spring to what I believe are LED sources. Much more even light and consistent color and gained about half a stop or so with nice fall-off.

Wow. Excellent. I wish the EXIF was intact to view ISO, shutter speed and aperture.

Thanks. And yeah, flickr strips exif for some reason. Most of these were shot at ISO5000, 1/2000th, f/2.8 with a 400/2.8 and 1DX. The last one was shot with a 200-400mm at ISO6400, 1/1600th, f/4. I could have dropped the ISO & shutter some, but I like freezing the ball when I can.

Andrew, these are great man!

So you shot with just 1 1dx body? How did you manage the 3 lenses?

I just kept them in a case at the media table and changed lenses when I felt like it. I don't bother carrying a second body for volleyball... there's no real need to, plus it just gets in the way. I just pick a lens and find a comfortable seat in the stands and shoot for a bit, move, and repeat. I will go back down to floor level for part of one set to get celebration shots and/or digs and diving plays.

Probably the sharpest VB pics I've seen. Fantastic work.
