Team Sports Photography with the EOS 70D

I use the 70D for Individual poses on Little League picture day.

I use the 70D for Individual poses on Little League picture day.

I shoot everything raw for several reasons. I like the latitude to adjust exposure and color balance in multiple ways after I capture.

I use my 5d Mark III for the best resolution when shooting the team photos for a sports league. When it comes to photographing the athletes individually, I use my EOS 70D for 2 reasons.

1.Shooting Raw Means Big Files.

The files from the APS-C sensor are already smaller than files from a full-frame DSLR, but still plenty big enough for large prints. Also, with the 70D I can choose small, medium, or full-sized raw image files.

I can shoot an entire league without filling up a memory card.

2. Moving Focusing Spot

Controlling the exact focusing point is important for portraits. I want the eyes to be tack sharp.
I can move the focusing point to a spot in the frame that keeps my subjects eyes sharp and still maintains a good balanced composition.

Full Frame is Better For Large Groups

If you are shooting really large group photos, you'll want to use a full-frame camera. You get more PPF (Pixels Per Face) which is real important if you are going to have large prints made.
