Thursday night the Butte College Roadrunners basketball team hosted the College of the Siskiyous Eagles. Butte got off to a good start and led 39-31 at halftime. In the second half they improved their lead to 54-37. Then the Eagles rallied, cutting the Roadrunner lead to 59-54 with 5:15 left to play. After a timeout Butte found enough offense to hold on for the victory at 69-61.

All photos taken with D700. #1-#4 with 50 mm. f/1.8; #5-#8 with 80-200 f/2.8.

Before the the game I checked the number of shutter actuations on my D700 and found it be be 107,805 after four years of use shooting mostly sports events. At this rate I may need a shutter replacement in a couple more years. However, I'm hoping that I can milk more than 150,000 shutter actuations out of this baby.

Comments are welcome.
