"D7100 & SPORTING DETAIL"


US
          

Had a chance to capture some baseball yesterday, and the D7100 is affording a clarity in detail I've not seen before. It isn't just in enlargement, but, to me, seems noticeable even at smaller sizes.

I imagine it would depend on what you are comparing the D7100 to. When I went from a D80 to a D7100 I was overwhelmed by increase in Clarity and resolution.

Your Baseball photo shows these qualities.

On the first day of my American holiday I was taken to see Pittsburgh Pirates play San Diego Padres. I have to say that baseball will never catch on in UK but Hooters probably will.

Have fun,

Dave

Hi Bill,

Nice job, very sharp and great colors. What lens did you use at 300mm?

I wonder if, at the moment of this capture, the catcher has realized yet that he is about to get zonked.

Thanks! It was the 300/4 @ f/5.
AF-C mode was on, but I only shot this frame. I NEVER shoot more than one frame to catch things like this, because even 6FPS is WAY too slow to be precisely useful here.
It's all about timing with the batter, and if the batter had actually connected with the ball, I would have had a decent chance at catching it near/on the bat. Like here (another single capture): http://billkeane.zenfolio.com/p1023146496/h41a6d670

Another excellent shot!!!
You remind me of my late cousin that worked for a while for ABC and CBS.
He was a sports cameramen, and whether it was basketball, golf, etc. He also worked for CBS out in the field. He always had the ball almost perfectly in frame. When I asked him how he does it, he winked and said it's all in "anticipation, always anticipate."
Loved both of those shots. OK how many did you miss...
Ben

I miss more than I get... The ball will be in the shot, almost always, but rarely squished on the bat. That's got to be a millionth of a second instance, and beyond a certain point, it's luck. I can get "in the ballpark" almost every time, but there's about a 4 inch window that has to happen on its own.

I get to about 2 or 3 ballgames a year. The image I posted as a link, plus 2 others right at full impact, all happened in the same game! I may never get that again... and I have no real idea why I got 3 in one game then.

And here's an impact, from last week's game, that I didn't expect to get...

3 months on and I still marvel at the IQ I get from my D7100 and your shots Bill demonstrate it in spade loads

Thanks Bill.

Interestingly there's much talk lately about the 300mm f4 attached to the D7100 and quite rightfully. I think some of this is the fact that the new 80-400mm AF-S lens shocked many because of its cost and perhaps the 300 f4 is getting quite popular.

I took this today, not a brilliant image, but perhaps it's another example of how flexible the lens can be. This time in an almost macro situation. It is a hidden beauty of the lens that it can be as a close up lens without getting too near critters. Not one of my best images by a long way, but serves to demonstrate the flexibility of the camera/lens combo.

Indeed! It's almost a Macro. Nice shot!

Thanks. You posted this thread with an image of a baseball game and the result was stunning and as sharp as a razor. My image is at the other end of the spectrum and I hope both images I feel are a vote for both the D7100 and the 300mm f4.

I am hoping to diversify soon and do some motor sport, an area I have absolutely no experience with so should be fun
