Shooting Cricket
 
Howdy,

Of late I have been shooting the cricket. Been using the 1D MIV + 400mm + 2x TC. Ive having major issues with both the batsmen and bowlers not being in focus. Anyone got any ideas.

By dropping the TC I was able to get tack sharp photos and still at f/5.6.

Cheers

Hi fella!, If your not shooting international cricket I think you 400 is well suited!. unless i'm shooting county Cricket I find a 300 or 300 + 1.4/7 converter on the ball? here's a quickley dug up one @ 300!
