From Saturday's (Dec 23, 2006) UConn game with Pepperdine. Marcus Johnson (???) goes up for a shot & is fouled by Pepperdine's Marvin Lea. Shot from our seats with a 200mm f2.8.

Thanks Irish - btw there is a freeware program called VIEWEXIF that plugs into several browsers so you can 'view the exif' data of a photo (if it is there). It's pretty cool & I use it all the time.

That being said. . .
I shot this with a 1DSII, 200mm f2.8 @ f4, iso 1600 & 1/640 shutter speed in raw & converted in CS2. No other noise reduction was used. I sometimes take a 300 2.8 to the games but our seats are (finally) close enough that a 200 is enough reach.

The rest of the shots I took at the game are here: http://www.molaver.org/uconn_pepperdine_basketball_1.htm

Here is a sequence of Doug Wiggins driving in on a fast break for 2 of his 16 points.

wow nice shots Jerry.

Do you have a pass to bring in a 1DSII and a 200mm f2.8? Or secuity just didn't mind? If that's the case, my 20D is coming to the next Wolfpack game with me.

You may have a big problem. Last year I appealed to Jeff hathaway (UConn AD) about why I could not take pix at Rentschler Field & the Hartford Civic Center (both managed by MSG). Bottom line new policy at both for UConn regular games. The new regs (UConn only) say you can bring any camera & lens provided it does not interfere with other fans. No supports (tripod or monopod) allowed. Flash IS allowed. I often bring my 300 2.8.

Seems to me like you're within the rules. Here's what the Civic Center's site has:

Single-frame and flash photography are allowed. Video cameras and hand-held video equipment are prohibited. Neither lighting nor camera support pods are permitted to be used by Guests at the Hartford Civic Center. Camera equipment may not obstruct the view or path of travel of others. Fans are not allowed to reproduce or re-broadcast any film of events, concerts or UConn games for commercial purposes without the written permission of Madison Square Garden, CT or the University of Connecticut and the NCAA.

Last year I asked what I can bring in for a camera, the security guard said "no camera over 35mm".... I think if you want to ban something, you should know what you're banning. Think I'll try during the next Wolfpack game, if I don't get in, I'll just bring it back to the car. 'eh
