The Haitian soccer team flew to San Antonio to practice for the Caribbean cup. As you know, they lost their soccer field and had to find a place to practice. Their next opponent is FIFA ranked number 9 Argentina in May (Haiti is ranked #91). I sold one of my 1D Mark III and sent the other Mark III to Canon to clean the sensor. So I stuck with 5D Mark II with 300 2.8 is and had to make sometime out of it. AI servo is weak and missed many shots because of slow frames per second and AF. But I managed to get some photos today.
Photographing soccer with 5d mark ii wasn’t too bad (actually I was impressed with 5D Mark II + 300 2.8 is). As long as players coming toward the photographer, it’s a easy shot. Here’s a link for 5D mark II if you would like to know more about the camera.
