Last Saturday Butte College entered its game with Modesto Junior College with a 4-0 record for the season. It again looked good for the Roadrunners as they raced out to a big early lead and were winning 31-10 at halftime. With a touchdown run early in the fourth quarter Butte built its lead to 38-10 and it appeared that it was all over for the Pirates. Roadrunner fans were shocked when Modesto finally came to life and racked up 28 unanswered points to tie the score at 38 all. Fortunately the Roadrunners were able to come back with a 60-yard drive that resulted in a score to put them ahead 45-38. Not to be undone, the Pirates surged back and were in position to again tie the score when a Modesto player fumbled the ball on the Butte goal line and a Roadrunner player recovered the ball with 34 seconds remaining in the game. Butte held on to seal the victory at 45-38, thereby extending their season record to 5-0.

For a lark I pulled my old D200 out of storage to shoot the first half of the game with 70-300 VR attached. For the second half I went with my D700 with the same zoom. Exposure was manually set with the D200 and aperture-preferred with the D700. The first two photos were taken with the D200 and the remainder with the D700. I had almost forgotten how primitive the D200 is compared with the D700. For reach the crop factor of 1.5 with the D200 was welcome, but on every other count the D700 is superior. The D200 is back in storage until who knows when.

Comments are welcome.
