  1. Hockey is one of the hardest sports to photograph. Fast, erattic, crappy lighting, Refs and players getting in the way and if you're a common schmoe like me and not shooting in a pro rink, you are shooting through Plexi-glas. Plexi not only adds an extra stop of light but if you aren't shooting perpendicular through the glass, you will get a haze or cloud on your image that you can't remove in post. Oh and did I mention that most often plexi has puck marks and scuffs galore? Yes, as a common guy shooting at a common rink, this is tough. So while it's sharper to shoot through a hole in the glass, just how does the X-T2 handle. Can you use it. Well, you are going to have to do some post regardless to adjust the WB and possibly to bump up the exposure. I find anything over 5000 starts to incur too much noise. Back Button focus doesn't work too well in fact almost all the images were off, however, by giving up control (gulp!) and switching to AF-C and allowing the AF to work when you press the shutter (AF-on still works in Manual mode) the images turned out much better. I also discovered that JPG is much better than RAW for this. RAW had too much noise whereas JPG has a built in processor which makes the noise not as noticeable. A trade off is the images look a bit soft. The biggest thing I found which was a surprise was how fast the buffer filled up. A quick burst and then it was full. What this means is that it's not a spray and pray tool which isn't a bad thing. Although do-able, I will stick with my Nikon D500. Fuji isn't there yet. Pretty darn close but not as good as the DSLR. If the X-T2 is all you have, then you can still use it for hockey. Or talk nice to the rink rat in the hopes that he will let you cut a hole in his plexi! Interesting story about image 141. The player celebrating had shot the puck and it hit the far post and then bounced ou tto his teammate who scored. The poor guy thought he had scored. Or...maybe he KNEW his teammate would so celebrated early!! The last picture was not shot through plexi. My settings were: AF-C AF-C setting of 5 for Eratic and suddenly accelerating/decelerating 1/1000s F 3.2 ISO 5000/6400 AF Mode -Single point The age group is Novice which is 7-8. Not fast but I also tried it on some older kids with the same result. You may notice that some images are different WB, that's because I didn't have a preset made up.
  2. First official work. I'd say is pretty pretty good. I need more experience in tweaking the Autofocus to my liking, but with the Universal one the behaviour is really good! Never used my Canon 1Dx that i brought as insurance Only trouble i had was to set the White Balance. Since was my first shooting with the X-T2 the photos where all a bit cold, with the Canon i was able to set it spot on picking the ice with a slightly off focus image! With the Fuji this didn't work :| Travis Oleksuk and Marco Insam by Matthias Egger, su Flickr Jesse Root and Brodie Reid by Matthias Egger, su Flickr Andrew Yogan by Matthias Egger, su Flickr Nick Palmieri by Matthias Egger, su Flickr
