I am not submitting these as anything special, in fact the colors look a little off, but these were some of my first D300 shots. I have my first college football game under the lights with the D300 next Thursday…and I am trying to keep my expectations realistic, but I am hopefully optimistic.

Those look pretty good for the light Mason. Good luck with your football game. I think if I had to shoot college football under their horrible lights I would probably save up for the D700...it's higher ISO performance is a lot better than the D300, but the D300 can produce some stellar high ISO images if you don't have to crop too much.

I hope you'll post some of the football shots.

Horrible lights is a relative term. HS is horrible, college is normally just bad :rolleyes:

For day games I like to shoot a 300 2.8 with a 1.4 TC. For night games I can't use the TC, so I'm not interested in the D700 solely because I don't want to give up the 1.5 crop factor that I have become used to. If I had the change for a 400 2.8 it would be different. Considering where we were just a year ago, I am VERY happy. The D700 is a very interesting camera, but for my type of shooting I am hoping that the D300 plus grip is the ticket.

I will be sure to post some shots next week in the sports forum.

Excuse me for my ignorance due to me learning. Why would you want to shoot at ISO 2000 or 2500 during daylight hours. (Bird Shots). Again, Learning

Boy- did I learn something on using High ISO is lit environments. Thanks. Great details on the Bee. What type of lense are you using.

Check out the shutter speeds associated with my shots...it was cloudy out and I was under significant tree cover so the light was not that great. If I would have had a tripod then yes, I could have lowered the ISO and shot with slower shutter speeds, but alas I did not.

Wade,

using higher ISO is all about getting a faster shutter speed, which may be needed to avoid motion blur (there's a general rule of needing when handholding at least 1/x shutter speed where x is your focal length in full frame mm) or to freeze the action, which is the case in the example I've shown where I wanted to minimize the motion of the insects resulting in a blurry image.

I used the Sigma 150 DG.

Hope this makes sense.

OK..here goes the ignorance factor again keko. So in the shots of the bee. The first shot was at 1/220 and the second at 1/320 correct. Sorry, I'm really still learning.

Wade the camera settings for my pics were:

#1
Shutter speed: 1/800s
F-stop: F9
ISO 2200

#2
Shutter speed: 1/1600s
F-stop:F8
ISO 3200

These shosts were taken in M mode and auto ISO, which lets you select shutter speed and f-stop whilst the camera chooses the appropriate ISO setting.

I chose quite high shutter speeds, because otherwise the wings would have been too blurry. I defintely hope you won't need to go that high with your kids :tongue:

Frank, that is the look I am shooting for as football approaches this week. Can you share details about NR...in camera or post processing?
Hey Mason.... no in-camera NR applied, just a quick run through Noise Ninja using auto-profile.

The D300 handles low light nicely. Here's a couple...
