  • What lenses to pair with a canon 80d for Sports (hockey mainly), vlogging, and videography?

    Best answer: Indoor sports like basketball and hockey require a fast shutter speed to prevent the subjects from being blurred due to their movement. Problem is that you're inside shooting in a somewhat dim lighting situation. Therefore, you must have a lens that has an aperture of at least f/2.8 or better. Most of the... show more
    Best answer: Indoor sports like basketball and hockey require a fast shutter speed to prevent the subjects from being blurred due to their movement. Problem is that you're inside shooting in a somewhat dim lighting situation. Therefore, you must have a lens that has an aperture of at least f/2.8 or better.

    Most of the time when I shot hockey *(photography only, no video) I shot with my 70-200 f/2.8L. I'd whole heartedly recommend getting Canon's 70-200 f/2.8L IS lens which will allow you to shoot at about ISO 3200 and get shutter speeds fast enough to stop the action. If you're shooting professional hockey, the lighting is likely to be better ESPECIALLY when the TV lights are on for televised games.

    Canon recently released their Mark iii version of this lens, but it's not much different than the Mark ii version. I think the only thing they did to the Mark iii version is change the white paint and improved on the coatings. Doesn't seem like it's worth spending the extra $300 for the Mark iii version.

    Looking over what B&H shows as being available in a f/2.8 telephoto zoom, I'd say you really only have two choices: the 70-200 f/2.8 IS mark II or the Mark iii version.

    While the 70-200 f/2.8L IS will be your main workhorse lens, you may want an ultra-wide like the Canon 11-24 f/4L for close-up shots of fans, establishing shots of the arena, or if you have access, close-up shots of the players. These types of shots don't require fast shutter speeds, so an f/4 lens will be more than adequate.

    You do not want to go with a non IS 70-200 because you'll need the image stabilization when doing videos.

    A nice thing about the 70-200 f/2.8L on your 80D is that it's equivalent to a 112-320mm in 35mm format on your 80D. If you add the 1.4x, which only looses 1 stop of light, you'll have a 156-448mm f/4 lens which will be fantastic for baseball and football day games.

  • Which camera has better image quality between sony a5100 and canon g7x mark ii? Considering only the quality of stable pics, all else equal.?

    Best answer: There's no comparison. The A5100 is an APS-C format mirrorless while the G7X Mark ii has a much smaller 1" sensor. This difference alone means that the ISO performance of the A5100 will be superior to the G7x ii. Here's a comparison:... show more
    Best answer: There's no comparison. The A5100 is an APS-C format mirrorless while the G7X Mark ii has a much smaller 1" sensor. This difference alone means that the ISO performance of the A5100 will be superior to the G7x ii. Here's a comparison: https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/image-c...

    Furthermore, because the A5100 is an interchangeable lens camera, you have the ability to use professional quality lenses that will be vastly superior to the G7x Mark ii in sharpness, light gathering (i.e. larger aperture). Plus the larger apertures that are available on the A5100, along with the longer focal lengths that the A5100 must use due to the larger format, will allow you to get a much shallower depth of field whereby you can blur out backgrounds much, much better than what you can do with the smaller-format G7X Mark ii.

    There really is no comparison between these two cameras. Not only in terms of sharpness, bokeh, and distortion, but in terms of creative capabilities, too. The A5100 is simply a much better image-making tool than the G7X Mark ii could ever be.

  • How do you get a phantom camera?

    Best answer: I assume you mean Phantom (with a capital P) as in the high-speed Phantom cameras used by such people as the Slow-Mo Guys on YouTube.

    These cameras, if you don't already know, are super expensive costing upwards of $250,000. Therefore very few people actually buy them. Instead, you can rent them from various rental houses for about $2,000 USD per day. Do a search for "Phantom camera rentals" and you'll find a place near you.

  • Can you take a starry night photo with the canon SL1 and the 18-55mm lens?

    Best answer: Yes. But you’ll need a tripod or maybe a small beanbag to rest the camera on, a high ISO setting on the camera to make it more sensitive to light (try ISO 3200 or maybe 6400), a wide aperture setting (try the one below the maximum aperture for your lens as that will give sharper images, but most lenses are best at... show more
    Best answer: Yes. But you’ll need a tripod or maybe a small beanbag to rest the camera on, a high ISO setting on the camera to make it more sensitive to light (try ISO 3200 or maybe 6400), a wide aperture setting (try the one below the maximum aperture for your lens as that will give sharper images, but most lenses are best at about f/5.6 or f/8).

    Also turn off the autofocus and manually focus the lens to infinity and to activate the shutter it’s best to use a remote shutter release. If you don’t have one then set the self timer function instead. The action of physically pressing the shutter release button causes camera shake. Experiment with shutter speeds but if it’s more than a few seconds the rotation of the Earth will start making the stars look like short lines instead of points. Those are called star trails and if you use a very small aperture (and/or neutral density filters) and a very long exposure of at least 30 minutes or an hour you can make a feature of star trails.
