A few of my last volleyball shots of the season. Since I move around the court and angles change I've been using F2.8 with minimum shutter set for 2000 auto ISO. When I'm taking these through the net shots from behind the baseline I use manual focus since the action I'm trying to capture is within a few feet of the far side of the net. Anyway...Enjoy.

That look when the hitter knows she just made the kill. Nicely captured.

I remember either reading or watching a review about R5 that it gives many more images per battery if it is only shot in high burst mode. I don't understand the electro-mechanics behind this. Similarly R3 is rated for 1/3 the number of 1dxii images per charge. However to paraphrase Bryan's feedback, he shot approximately 9000 images on a single charge over a two day period. He remained in 15fps mode through out the two day period. I am dumbfounded. I don't understand how this is possible. Can anyone help me understand please? If this translates into 1dxii level number of images with flash use and IS enabled, I will be a happy camper.

Just to put my own experience in worst case context, shooting a wedding on a very warm day, R5 gave me exactly 370 shots per charge with IS enabled and an OCF trigger on camera. The camera was always in airplane mode.

Just my personal experience but it seems that the actual data processing and saving of the image doesn't require too much power. What would drain the power is simply having the EVF on and running and of course IS (lens and now in-body). Granted my R5 is gripped (thus having 2 batteries), I can easily get 5000+ shots on the two batteries in burst. But of course combing through that many images is never enjoyable. :D

Hello everyone! I purchased my 1dx Mark III in June of 2020. I picked up an R5 last week and it's amazing. I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts as to why or why I shouldn't sell my 1dx Mark III while it's still worth something?

Don't think any of us can make that determination for you. You should know whether you need the features that 1DX3 offers over the R5 or if the R5 is more than sufficient for what you shoot. If it's the latter, then sounds like the 1DX3 won't see much action in the future and makes no sense to keep.

A lot slower event this past weekend, The Vintage Sports Car Club, Cotswold Trial, held at Prescott Hill Climb.

Having never been to the venue before the first mistake of the day was relying on the sat nav to get me there ! great until the last few miles when it felt like I was competing instead of watching, there are some very narrow lanes around Prescott. Still we know for next time.

It was a nice dry day and mild, unlike the Sunday.

The choice of hills to start on seemed obvious, the longest and steepest walk first.

All of those images are excellent Stuart.
It is great to see people enjoying their hobbies in the outside.

The images also prompted me to look into the event, which I had no knowledge of before.
(I would be a spectator/ hobbyist photographer on the sidelines, like I saw so many of in various YouTube videos)

Thanks for sharing those images!

Fantastic set Stuart.
Never seen hill climbs like that. That's the real stuff IMO.
Only ones I've seen here are virtual street racing in hilly areas!

You've captured those moments so beautifully.
Thanks for sharing

Cracking shots Stu - I've just looked at my website and I last did one of these back in 2009 (1DMk3) and 2008 (5D) - hadn't realised it was so long ago! Great fun and amazing what they can get up!

The last hillclimb I went to was an impromptu event held outside the Laguna Seca raceway in a cow field turned camping spot in 1976. After the daily motorcycle grand-prix competitions we all retired to the vices of the unimproved camp. The vibe got livelier as the night progressed and alcohol got consumed. The hillclimb started with a few dirt bikes, progressed through road ready BMW's and Harley's and ended with a motorhome or two attempting the steep hill inside the pasture fence :).

Seeing as it was snowing like mad earlier this morning now moved on to gale force bitterly cold winds there's no excuse not to do a bit of processing.

The Motor Racing Legends was one of the best events at Silverstone this year and when I saw a race just for GT 40's well that would need seeing. Turns out there were only 7 entries for an endurance race but so what.

For me it was the sound more than seeing them on circuit and after one lap they were all spread out so very difficult to get more than one car in shot.

what an engine

the glow is from a heater, but I liked the atmosphere it gave off. I might get around to removing the clutter in background some time...

Bitterly cold 2 degrees yesterday. Busy few hours of sports action with the mkiii and 200-400 combo. Rugby first in the early afternoon, followed by football in the early evening. Shooting live for the BBC Sport website feed so had to be on it. Tethered mkiii to laptop for fast transfer of images for editing, captioning and upload. Thankfully my fingers managed to keep from getting frozen until near the end of the game. Floodlights weren't the best for F4 so ISO were higher than I like, but catching the action was priority more so than image quality, but the noise reduction in camera handled the high ISO reasonably well.
