ISO 12800: Ball Chase
Missing EXIF data: f/1.8, 1/320s, ISO-12800
Don't look too close at these, lol. At ISO 12800 the E-M5 is suitable only for web or small print publication -- but it does capture a usable "action" image here so I wanted to put these up for reference.
I was privileged to be invited to photograph a young men's flag football league run as a ministry in north Philadelphia in the Kensington section.
As I anticipated, the action shots are not what I'd like them to be. I'm not really shooting a serious sports kit at all -- but even if I was it got DARK and even at f/1.8 the ISO requirements ranged from 3200 to 12800 as the night advanced. It was difficult under the poor lighting to even get a 1/320 of a second speed later in the night as it got totally dark except for the lights on the field.
These shots are with the Olympus OM-D E-M5 and the Olympus M.Zuiko 75mm f/1.8 lens (150mm equivalent on full frame).
