Potential Pool Setup

26 March 2012 - 12:40 PM

Hello Wetpixel!

As a result of reading through some threads on here I came up with this potential setup for pool work, which works with gear I have access to. I've been trying to figure out a good setup to shoot conceptual shots with a model. Getting access to a pool to experiment with this has been kinda tough so I want to be ready.

Here's my diagram, is there anything anyone would do differently? I have a SB700 Speedlight I could try as well.

P.S. Thanks so much to everyone for their contribution in these forums, it's been a great source of info! :-)

5dMkii - Which WA lens will focus the fastest?

26 March 2012 - 11:56 AM

I recently experimented with a Canon 5dMkII, shooting a competitive swimmer. I was using a 15mm fisheye. I found it to be veeeeeery sloooooow to focus. This is compared to my normal rig which is a Nikon D7000 w/ tokina 10-17mm.

So, I'm wondering what wide angle lens would be the fastest focusing choice for the Canon 5dMkii? Is the 5dMkii going to be painfully slow to focus for action shots no matter which lens I try, due to the 9-point AF system?

Thanks a lot.
