I know these are less than ideal conditions, but wondering if I should even bother giving it a go? It would just be casual/candid shots but I still want decent shots or nothing at all

I've got a 70-200 F4 IS or the 100-400 f4.5-5.6 IS paired with my 5D4. This would be after sunset but the high school stadium has those stadium floodlights.

The sport would be ultimate frisbee, so running/jumping people and discs being thrown through the air... i'm guessing minimum 1/800s ideally?

Do you guys think I could get something out of my setup, or just wait until I can take shots earlier in the day?

I'd shoot earlier in the day, you're probably going to need f2.8 for night shots

I would try it. shoot Av, set to wide open, push the ISO up until you get a decent shutter speed. Shoot raw, and post process.

Good luck!

Not so easy to just shoot earlier in the day if the game is only played at night haha.

I would shoot as manual, as wide as apperture as you can, 1/800 minimum shutter speed and up your ISO to acceptable levels. Dont be afraid to shoot slightly underexposed to get the action frozen and then bring it back in post.

That camera should allow you to push the ISO in excess of 10K. I shoot a Nikon d3s and regularly shoot rodeo under less than optimal lights at 10K and that's using a f/5 -6.3 lens. You'll likely have some clean up but give it a try.

Sure seems like UF would be ideal for using slower shutter speeds to get nice blurs.
1/250 or 1/320 could make ideal panning shots.
Just my 2 cents.
