Had number 15 Northern Iowa come in to town last night, fresh off their weekend upset of now 18th Wichita State. It makes for a good sized crowd when we get a ranked in conference visitor. Ranked visitor also means the sideline space for photographers gets tight, so instead of matching up with everyone else I decided to get off my butt and try out some new angles for the 1st half. Mix of 5D3 and 7D2 images. I am finding the 7D needs some MFA on a number of lenses, 3 cameras 1st time the 135 needed tweaking. Also have the wide aperture focus screen in on the 7D2, makes the view finder darker, but on the non sports side, lets it compete with the EVF for manual focusing. 24-70 would be nice (but I fear all I'd use it for is basketball so I cant justify even the 3rd party ones) so I keep a 50 1.4 at f2 on the 7D and then the 5D has the 70-200 or 300 on it most of the time, then I keep my X-E2 with the 18 around my neck during games. Played a little with a gopro remote, but I need to figure out how to force a decent shutter speed out of it; was planning on using the universities 7Dc as a remote as well, but it showed up with a bent pin nixing that idea for now.
For those using the 7D2, are you finding yourself using the anti-flicker? I can't decide if it's helping or just making it take longer for my buffer to clear. If I shoot RAW there's seems to be no need to use it just fall back to my normal workflow; I'd like to be able to shoot jpeg for basketball though, as the lighting doesn't change and it'll save space and turnaround time.
