Go Toros!

The CSUDH men's soccer team improved their conference record to 6-4-0 today with a 4-2 win over Cal Poly. This was my first outing with the 5D Mark III and high level soccer. My concerns were focusing speed, frames per second (fps) and overall responsiveness. In addition, because I don't have a vertical shutter button, framing and tracking were a concern.

The good news is that the 61 point autofocus kicks ass. So by eliminating that variable, it came down to the speed/fps of the camera. It took a little getting use to, but once you get into a rhythm it's all a matter of timing.

To put the camera to a proper test, I shot 4+ frame sequences. Below are two of the sequences.
