  • Jeff: I understand T7i, fine camera for someone starting out. Not enough to upgrade from T6i. Don't understand 77D at all???
  • Difference between 77D and T7i
    • interval timer
    • bulb timer
    • AF-On button
    • a top LCD panel
    • eye sensor to shut off the rear LCD when the camera is raised for shooting
    • 77d costs $110 more than the T7i

Topic 3: Jeff – Shooting basketball

  • Been doing a ton of high school basketball shooting
  • Quick tips on basketball in particular
    • Shutter Speed at least 1/400
    • Aperture 2.8 minimum
    • ISO to compensate, crank it up! I have shot 6,400 and 8,000 on Canon crop. Only photographers see noise
    • Shoot close to but not on the baseline with the team you want to shoot coming toward you on offense
    • Be on the side of the basket so that you can see faces of right handed players
    • 24mm on Canon crop (about 40mm FF) enough room for team coming towards you
    • 70mm on Canon crop (about 112mm FF) not quite enough reach for other side of the floor
    • Basketball is a vertical game, shoot portrait orientation
    • Don't forget to get shots of student section, national anthem, cheerleaders, parents, huddle (Moses parting student section)
