Weekend in sports

Had a very busy weekend two weeks ago, first shooting kids soccer, then the Stockholm Marathon.
Took over 1600 images on that single day.

comboThe day before, I bought the MB10 battery grip that makes the Nikon D300 shot as fast as 8 fps. Combined with the 70-200VR 2.8 lens, you get an awesome combo for shooting sports. I will try to get the time to write a mini review about it soon.
Some more images from the marathon (dont want to post kid soccer images without permission from the parents). A few of these will probably be published in the swedish edition of Runners World.

A view from the bridge that is the highest point of the course (Västerbron):

After the climb on the bridge, going downwards feels easy…

Well dressed…

I also used the TC17 tele converter on the 70-200VR, testing the AF speed by shooting close ups and even portraits of moving runners. (If I get the time, I will also write a mini report of the TC17 soon).

  1. An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a friend who has
    been doing a little homework on this. And he actually bought me
    breakfast simply because I discovered it for him… lol. So
    let me reword this…. Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanx
    for spending some time to discuss this topic here on your
    web site.
