Hoch-Ybrig (CH) 2013: fast freestyle action and full frame D800

hyjump_3small

They say a full frame camera like the D800 is not good for sport and action. Indeed it is quite heavy to carry along … Despite the ridiculous 4 fps, the D800 is still able to catch some good action (here subjects were added on backgrounds post-shooting) .

To get a fast subject on focus mind to set up the following:

- AF-C (continuous AF) “d9″ or “3d” to avoid focusing the background instead of your subject, especially with a 50 mm

- cH for “high” burst speed (no 6 fps for me, I do not have the battery grip with the EN-EL18)

- To reach 5 fps with normal batteries you can shoot in DX mode

- With a max f/2.8 , I set up ISO to 200 and time was around 1/6000

- Better shooting with a zoom to restrict most of the focus area on your subject, the 70-200 mm VRII set at 70 mm was enough

    coooool!
    but the 1st one is not in its correct order is it?
    and why not in original background?

      Dear Eagle-eye Raya :)

      the order is correct, it is a back flip, I was amazed how the guy could turn his back backward and the sky upward from front to back and front again.

      The background is not the original one because:

      1) I had to follow the jump and move the camera keeping the subject in the middle. With only 4 fps and the close vicinity to the subject I would have got maximum 2.5 bodies per static frame

      2) It was terribly full of kids who liked to stand between me, my camera and the jumping friends. So I preferred to cut the jumpers out of their crowded backgrounds (with cables and ski-lift too) and put them on panoramas I organized that same day

      .. waiting forward to see you jumping!
