p.1 #1 · D800 in DX mode for basketball???


Anyone out there using the D800 for indoor amateur sports in DX mode? I'm wondering how the camera performs in dimly lit gyms?

Thanks.

The same as FX, there is nothing changed only you throw away a lot of the pic.

I wouldn't use it in DX mode, just shoot in FX and crop as needed.

if you have a grip then 6fps is available (with different battery)...that is the only positive I have experienced (using 1.5 crop) but for action that might make a difference.

In crop mode with grip you can have 6fps in stead of 4fps, that's a big difference.

I find it difficult to keep the action within the DX-frame, I have no experience in dim light.

I have shot basketball with different bodies including the D7000 and the D3, not yet the D800. I would assume it should be more than ok. You'll need high ISO, I typically shoot between 3200 and 6400 to freeze the action with fast lenses like a 85 1.8 and the 70-200VR. I don't really see a need for fast fps, I focus on getting the right shot, not on bringing back thousands of impossible to sort pictures. I use bursts for static shots (team after the game to avoid people blinking among others)
