"D7100 football"


Wethersfield, US
          

I had my first chance yesterday to use my D7100 for high-school football. I'm very happy with the results. The autofocus system on the D7100 is way better than on my D7000. It may be better than the one on my D3, or if not better, it's at least as good.

I shot most of the game with my D3 and 400/2.8, but I had the D7100 by my side for when the action got closer.

Here are some images. Images 3 and 4 were taken with an AF-S 18-70, others were with a 70-200 f/2.8. (EXIF is intact.) Images 3-7 were with an SB-800 speedlight.

1. Kicker, during warm-ups.


2. Receiver drill.


3. Captains approaching midfield for the coin toss.


4.


5.


6. Touchdown


7. Coach of the white team. (Can you tell from his expression which team won?)

Thanks for sharing. What focusing and exposure settings did you use on the d7100.

Thanks, Bill. Your remark induces me to expand a bit on the IQ I'm getting. Here is the full frame for one of the above shots:



And here is a 100% crop of the part of the image that is the tackler's head, just as it came out of the camera. Note the detail in the helmet and face and in the jersey of the runner being tackled.



I know I'm gushing a bit, but the ability of the D7100 to acquire and maintain focus on moving subjects in poor light (typical high-school field lighting) just amazes me.

Gush away! What was the ISO on the one with the 100% image of tackler's head? There's zero discernible noise...

ISO 400, which is what I typically use when shooting football with flash: ISO 400, f/4 and x-sync (1/250) is my starting point, with adjustments depending on the field lighting.

Pictures are fantastic! D7100 + 70-200 f/2.8: insanely good combo!

You are convincing me to trade my D7000 for a D7100 for basketball this year. If I trade my D7000, plus my D90, plus my old 85 f1.8D (I have the newer AFS version, now), I can pretty much get the D7100 for a straight-up trade or a few hundred bucks.

The AF lock-on and tracking on the D7000 for basketball (while much better than my D90) is that camera's only weak link.

That's my assessment of the D7000, too. It's an outstanding camera. For anyone shooting stills who doesn't need low-light tracking of fast-moving subjects, there is no reason to upgrade from the D7000 to the D7100. I still have mine and have no plans to get rid of it, even though I have the D7100 now. (I'll be using the D7000 as a remote camera for sports.)

I gotta agree with you two about the D7000 focus speed especially in low light. Glad to here that you are liking the D7100 so much Jon. I do not shoot 1/10th the sports I was doing otherwise I would definitely look to upgrade mine. Without the sports component I will save myself a few bucks and wait awhile before I upgrade again.

When I bought my refurbished Nikon D7100, I posted an ad on Craigslist for my D7000. After about a week, I pulled the ad. I'm keeping the D7K. Wonderful camera, too good to let go of.

These are very good but then so are you . Thanks for putting all of them up. I shot a few D7100 Monsoon soccer in the rain but at high iso so looking forward to the non-Monsoon.
Ps thanks for the flash info
Cheers,
