I was lucky enough to get a ticket to the final game of the 6 Nations. Used my Panasonic FZ5 and the zoom was phenomenal. The game was floodlit so I had to up the ISO to 400 (the max on the camera) so there's a bit of graininess.

I tried shutter priority and aperture priority, plus manual,and am relatively happy with the outcome.

Hey Frenchy,

Not bad at all from that far back...... that 432mm equivalent was working well for you. It would be worth popping them through photoshop/paintshop pro or whatever you use to lighten them a little as they seem slightly dark to me, but apart from that I think you have done a great job.

Your mission is to get on the sideline next time...... :-):lol::blah:

This genre seems to be your real calling. Perfect timing.

Thanks for your comments guys.

Mark - maybe one day I'll be on the sideline but for now I'm content with just getting free tickets!!! I know what you mean about the darkness - it seems dark to me too but the noise seems amplified when I tweak the levels. Have you got a cunning way of doing it without upping the noise?

Syd - thanks mate, I do really enjoy action photography and I think I'm slowly picking it up (though I must say a camera upgrade would be nice!).
