Shot a gymnastic meet last night. I posted these examples in another thread, but thought it might be more helpfull to make it's own thread. I had the fps set a 3 when I noticed the light cycling, so set it to 10fps to see what I would get. I've noticed this before shooting football, but nothing to this degree so figured I'd document it. Below are three set's to illustrate how fast these lights were cycling and to what degree.
All of the images were shot with a 1D Mark IV set at f/2.8, 1/500 and ISO of 8000. All images are SOC with the only exception of converting from RAW to jpg. This is another good example why I shoot RAW.
