Egsisting Light
Using Preset WB setting and a gray card, will get WB on the mark. Without a Gray card, sometimes find someone wearing white clothing, set the preset WB on them.
Fast lenses is best choice for indoor arenas. ISO800 and post image batching with noise reduction, some contrast and some saturation.
Can get satisfactory images with ISO1600, but post image processing is a must. With Noise, Contrast, and Gamma adjustments. Any banding occuring at ISO1600 will be eliminated with the contrast adjustment.
Theres batch programs that'll make things faster, then adjusting one image at a time. Bibble, EyeBatch and Jasc Image Robot to name a few.
The SB28dx will be a workhorse providing enough light, even with slow lenses. TTL Matrix mode, with WB on flash setting. Can use S Mode set for 350/sec and ISO400 for slow lenses. Higher Shutter speed for fast Lenses, still use ISO400.
In all cases use Lens hood, all the lighting plays heck on the filter.
