My daughter ( left flyer ) at a cheer competition yesterday. It is the first time I have used the D500 at one of these competitions. There is no flash allowed as it could distract the athletes, so quite a challenge for action photography. I plan to buy a faster lens to record these indoor, no flash events and wanted to get a feel for the best focal length. This one is 31mm and there is a small crop here, so thinking 50mm f1.8 or f1.4 might be a good place to start. I was using my 16-80 f2.8-4. Need higher ss and lower ISO but not too bad for ISO 5000? This image - HH, MM, 1/640, f3.2, auto ISO pegged @ 5000 ( my limit ), +0.7ev, 31mm. cc

Yikes!  Nice catch, for sure.  Funny thing; at the market yesterday, there was a group of young cheerleaders that were having a bake sale to fund a trip to a competition in Orlando.  Yes, I bought some cookies. :D

I'd say you nailed it!


iso shmiso, mine's set at 20K...sometimes it works out (maybe not for a shot like this)!

Thanks guys

 

David - they are probably heading to worlds at Disney. It is an invitation only competition for the best of the best teams. You can get a paid bid, partial paid bid or at large bid ( almost like a wild card team ) where you pay your own way and compete in a quarter final when you get there to see who will advance. Last year my daughters team came in 11 overall out of 69.

 

Doug - Every once in while I get an image that works with high ISO but overall I see significant IQ reduction at higher ISO. Not as much as with my 7DII but still a concern.

No question image quality is almost always compromised, but I like having a chance, and if nothing else... the practice (I need it!)

A busy natural outdoors background in low light I have found is a situation that gives high iso a chance, Thanks.

Seems to me you did a great job John, more so as you had to grab the action and were in no way in control of it. I am amazed at the quality that you achieve,  sure the advances in technology available in the D500 help, but your skill with it is impressive indeed.... I have the 50 f1.4 though have read that some think the f1.8 can be a better lens...? Those kids are quite a team.
