Has anyone taken night game shots? I wasn't able to get off 100- 200, 1/125, 2.8,
FZ20 w/ TCON-17, Neat Image. I am thinking a sunny day may bump me to 1/250-500 and another f-stop. Too much to ask?

I went to a day game and was able to shoot at f stop 4-5.4 and shutter 400- 1000 at iso 80.

I would not use a teleconverter at a night game, even though they claim no light loss there just has to be some loss.

And 700mm hand held at 1/125 second is hard to do.

There is a pretty good ability of the FZ20 to crop photos.. I would try that with a photo editor rather than the teleconverter. Especially if you have a newer version of PS I would bet you can duplicate theadded reachof the Tcon17 ,with a crop.

Now I am a zoom freak but you need good light.
