I just rented a 70-200 f/2.8 IS lens. I rented it for the reason of testing it out and shooting my friend mountain bike riding on downhill tracks. I was just wondering if i could get some advice on shutter speed/aperture/ISO.
I understand that using AI-Servo mode is a must and that around 1/500th is fast enough to freeze action. I also understand that panning is a must too. I am just not sure about the ISO and aperture. It will mostly be in the morning/late afternoon and kind of in the bush. So i'm guessing from what i have seen, f/2.8 and f/4 are mostly used at around ISO 400 or so.
Sorry to sound like a noob here, but i haven't really had a lens, nor have i shot much sport where i really want to try and bring the best out of the photos!
Thankyou very much,
