finally pulled the trigger, got the 7dII (well it's on it's way anyways). I have another thread about this as they all now sell only with the wifi adapter for $400 more, unreal. I found a good online retailer that had a few left and was willing to sell body only , no stupid wifi adapter and I'm excited.
Teamspeed, I know we discussed this a lot before but no idea where those threads are, any quick tips for setup? we leave for Indy the day after camera arrive LOL so no time to play with it unfortunately:
so I gather so far:
ISO-Auto (nice to have this feature finally)
Anti flicker on
set the AF points for each orientation
wide open aperture 2.8
Case 2 or 4 I believe for basketball?
SS as high as I can go without underexposing and set the EV (I think that's what it's called) one click to the right?
anything else need to be set initially?
Thanks in advance for your advice (as always)
I run a custom case 4, I believe. I run the top slider to the left and the 2nd slider to the right. No need to worry about the bottom slider... Try going one less than the far ends, and adjust from there.
I run manual mode, shutter speed set to minimally 1/1250th, f2.8, and then auto ISO with EC + 1/3.
Shoot something gray or black at the court, and set your custom WB. Or you can set the temperature manually until you like the WB you are getting. This will save you time later.
You've got the rest!
