I know I have said this in the past, and I think you resisted about 1 yr ago, but shoot F2.8 in basically every arena - F4 is for PRO arenas - and even then F3.2 is what I use at ACC in Toronto - and that is the best arena in the world to shoot hockey

F4 and 6400 vs F2.8 3200 with a crop, or even full frame, is NO CONTEST - I would never, ever, ever chose that trade off for hockey

i almost always , if not always, shoot single point, with focus on the 1 player I want - there is no need for F4 - the ISO trade off is not worth it


Hockey and wedding photographer. Favourite camera / lens combos: a 1DX II with a Tamron 45 1.8 VC, an A7Rii with a Canon 24-70F2.8L II, and a 5DSR with a Tamron 85 1.8 VC. Every lens I own I strongly recommend [Canon (35Lii, 100L Macro, 24-70F2.8ii, 70-200F2.8ii, 100-400Lii), Tamron (45 1.8, 85 1.8), Sigma 24-105]. If there are better lenses out there let me know because I haven't found them.

Not sure I would have been resisting before but that not really an issue. The only reason I was shooting at F4 in the past was because with the T2i the focus was slow as hell and I was still learning to follow the game
and I was missing shots. On the 7D2 im shooting 2.8. Tonight I worked down to ISO 3200 f2.8 and 1/800 on both cameras and it seemed ok. Still unloading the pics, buy here is a sample of a shot tonight. Much better base to work with.

this looks plenty sharp but probably at least 1 stop underexposed...

if its shot in RAW, raising it 1 stop shouldnt be an issue. maybe bump the contrast a little too...

after going back after they finally all loaded in, I bumped up the exposure and it looked quite a bit better.

The Charlottetown Islanders (QMJHL) captured two wins on the weekend, both by virtue of overtime goals. I was lucky enough to catch them both.

i work with goalies and find pictures really help teaching


- sealing the short side with pad and glove = good
- toe goes inside the post = good
- from the puck's eye, the space you see between shoulder and post isn't there (only from camera's eye is there space)
- butterfly slide to the glove side often with younger goalies the stick side gets behind and leaves a hole between the blocker arm and the body = bad
- goalie on feedback argued he thought player might pull puck to his forhand so he put stick there to prevent it = gamble
- 1/1250 ISO 4000 F2.8 is my default 1Dx_ii goto for Bantam / Midget age hockey
