Last weekend we were in Tamworth for a wedding, and we were able to get a free night to attend the Pro Bull Riding event held at the AELEC Centre. I’d never been to a PBR meet before, and I thought that I would take along our new Canon 1Dx for a spin!
The new camera enables us to photograph in lighting conditions that would have been impossible a year ago, and the combination of it’s great low light performance together with 12 frames per second speed meant I was able to get some great shots. Enjoy!
For the gearheads out there, these were shot with a Canon 1Dx with the 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS plus a Canon 1.4x II Extender. Images were shot as high quality Jpegs at ISO 6400 with a wide open aperture of effective f/4 and shutter speed of 1/1000th sec.
I found the 1Dx to be very fast to obtain and track focus, even in the low light conditions, and the quality of the images even at 100% crop was outstanding. It’s great to be able to use gear this good!
