NOPR - Vancouver Open Judo Tournament 2011
« on: February 10, 2011, 08:15:37 AM »

I was out at the Vancouver open Judo tournament last weekend and did a bit of shooting.
This is the first time that ANY Judo tournament was held in the new Olympic Oval. The light was great and it was a real pleasure to get out and shoot there. So much better than so many of the dark gymnasia that many competitions occur within. I was actually able to get the ISO as low as 2500!!!  The full set is on my Flickr at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/dragonspeed/sets/72157625891666987/with/5432773987/
 
Here are a few pics from the tournament.
 
Like Judo, speed skating, the original design of the building, requires the human machine to be functioning at full capacity

Great action shots - you just can't beat the speed of a full DSLR. Do you think the 7d is worth the  extra money over the 60d?
The 7D is NICE, but as a GREAT increment over the 60D, you might consider looking for a 50D.   It very much depends on WHAT you want to shoot.  I moved from the 50D to the 7D for the slightly faster frame rate and the 19 AF points.  I wish Canon hadn't played the Megapixel game.. if they had come out with a camera with the same MP as the 50D but with faster frame rate and more AF points, it would have been KILLER.

What do you want to shoot?
