Ive been playing around with settings for capturing a sharp still frame of action sport. Its been tough. 1/1000th on my stills camera freezes pretty much any sporting moment whereas 1/1000th on the epic video still has a lot of blur. Im shooting 5k 3:1 250iso 25fps. Got to keep noise low, compression low, still get enough light to the sensor while giving myself enough dof to hold a sharp focus shot (on 600mm lens) Tricky!
Im interested in the HDRX idea. Id love more info.
I think with the right lighting on a fashion shoot and shooting a semi fast shutter angle/speed, whatever you can freeze your model enough to pull a sharp frame. Someone hitting a tennis ball or kickflipping a skateboard or similar shot tight its much harder to get that frozen moment.
Id love to hear from other photographers who have shot action sports and how theyre results have worked out?
