Yeah I figured that....Thanks. My issue this weekend is I am contract shooting for someone and I have to hand over CF Cards right at the tourney site and they burn CD's right there. So there will be absolutely no post on these...and although I usually shoot everything in RAW when I shoot for my own company (and I mean everything)....this one will be in JPEG format. (Like I said...this one is a very lucrative deal so I am "selling out" a bit). I think the in-camera Noise reduction will help....and I bet I can hit ISO 5000 and still be just fine in this rink at 1/500th.
Thanks again for all the input gents. Sure helps !!
