1. RAW is good.
2. City Hall is good for concert but bad for concert photography.
If anyone find themselves in disagreement with Camera Raw 3 on the optimal image settings for this set of photos please kindly let me know.
Album (105 photos)
Two lessons learnt,
1. My 300D’s LCD screen is definitely too bright. As a result I underexposed quite a few of the shots.
2. Using AI Servo is a bad idea for sports like frisbee and football. Since players’ movements are multi-dimensional the camera losses its focus too easily.
Furthermore, I should check if the UV filter is lowering my Bigma’s focusing capabilities…
Two things worth mentioning about my photographic equipments. Firstly Bigma is superb for airshow photography; you really need both 50mm and 500mm for airshows. Secondly EOS-300D’s interal buffer is indeed insufficient, making it hard to use continuous shooting to capture crossovers.
