    Those pictures below capture at my daughter water polo game with 50mm f/1.4D lens




    Handheld at 1/15s f/1.4 at 50.0mm
  2. Nice images...what ISO setting? Your handholding at 1/15 is darn good!

    What is the 'underwear' in the first shot? Also her suit looks different than the others...??

    ISO640 and I hate tripod :) 

    Because of the high cut swimsuit so some of the girls wear "underwear" underneath ;-)

    Tough shooting conditions.

    Think tripod and flash would have been your friend for sure :>))

    Very Nice shots! I used to coach polo for many years at the HS and club level. Great to see !

    Nice shots.. Underwear under the bathing suits is pretty funny..
    For what it is worth, you might try upping the ISO to 1600 and shot with higher shutter speeds... Maybe even longer lenses too.
    I shoot way to much stuff at 1600 and I am very pleased with the results.

    Those picture with ISO640 look real good in my opinion, if I am using ISO1600 with D70, I don't think it cut it. Thanks for suggestion anyway :smile:
