K-1 and the HD D-FA* 70-200mm @ 1/160s whilst tracking through the jump. This was image 1 of 8 captured in sequence by the K-1, only image 3 of the 8 is blurry. Image 3 was a moment just before the rider dropped back down to the track. All the other images, including the one with the plant in the way of the subject, were in focus at 1/160s in AF-C. I'm no pro so one has to wonder about the negativity regularly espoused about this camera only being good for still subjects.

Time for something different. I swapped the D-FA 15-30 for the 150-450 on Sunday and tracked down a local sporting event. I was looking for some aerial ping pong (a local derisive term for Australian Rules Football) but had no joy. Instead I did find an excellent resource for local field hockey games, a sport I played back in the late 70's. I'd not photographed hockey in years so it took a bit of time to get back into how best to capture the action. Next game I hope to get to is tonight under lights. I expect that will push me and the camera more than this daytime fixture.

Night sports with the K-1 and the D-FA 150-450.


Compared to shooting the same sport during the daytime I found the 150-450 was less confident at locking onto the subjects. I als had the Auto ISO locked at up to 6400ISO which I changed to 12800 to see if that helped. I found better success when I swapped for 9 point to central SEL and using the on-lens AF button in conjunction with BBF. Will need to get more time in these conditions to get better at it.
