For the past couple of years I’ve been devoted mostly to sports photography. I keep telling myself that I need to drag my butt out of bed and get a good sunrise picture again, but I never manage it. I still hold out hope though.
But to be honest I’m having loads of fun with the sports photography. I had to gulp early in football season when my beloved 70D decided that 250,000 exposures was enough and gave me its last. But I replaced it with an 80D and couldn’t be happier, especially with “flicker mode.” With my old camera shooting in burst mode under football and basketball lights, and the color balance was all over the place because of the way the venue’s lighting system “flickered.” The 80D compensates for that, and for the kind of photography I’m doing now this feature alone with worth the full purchase price.
