    (1) Sudket's deceptive drop shot together with his powerful smash is effective.
    (3) I like the Guo Zhendong / Xu Chen pic.

    wow! these look really good! No need to delete the first pictures, they are good for comparison to show people how post processing makes a difference to the picture. I think you are the first person on BC to shoot RAW. The colours still seem less vibrant than the Canon. Is that because of the diffrent sensor they use? Must have taken a lot of time on the computer to do the post processing. Why do you have to adjust for exposure? Did you shoot manual? If so, why?

    great capture!

    Must have a download storage. D70s is 6MP. 2Gb in RAW can still fit quite a lot of photos - perhaps 150-200 for that camera.

    Sudket's partner is unwell.
    And during HK Open,Songphon's partner came to Singapore for Cheers Asian Satellite.
    His partner Nataphon had to come because he is H.R.H Princess's mixed doubles partner.That is why,Songphon+Sudket for Hk Open.
    :D

    Really? Is Sudket's partner call Ngensrisuk Phattapol? He actually cheered us up in his first round. Let's see below funny pics :D He played much better in 1/16.

    I have 5.5gb card, included 4gb esp. brought for taking photo for this event. I used photoshop CS version. Actually, it is my first time to use RAW & Photoshop. I am now attending a photography course talked by Mr. Lung Kwan Yee, he highly recommended us to us RAW. I consumed much time in exploring the software, esp. in conversion of RAW file and correction of white balance, and took some files to consult photo lab.

    I agreed the color and resolution from Canon is better than Nikon. If I hadn't had so many Nikon equipment, I would have changed to use Canon. I used A mode to capture. Generally speaking, Nikon D70 is said to be about 1/3 underexposure, some people suggested to download a curve (I don't know how) to convert the histogram. Moreover, I used central weight light meter of the camera, it sometimes masked by player wearing black color tee, eg. Malaysia team in QF.

    Yes, about 6MP for every RAW. All the pics occupied 7.5Gb HD. For safeguard, I uploaded to computer every night. Most painful day is the day of 1/16, they finished at 2:15am at QE, I slept at 4am after uploading all the files, and need to get up to work at 7am. :crying:

    HAHA...HA... He seems so. Of course, he was the smash target of his team. China team attacked him most of the time, and he missed many shuttlecocks with grimace expression. He is tall and thin, looked like a pair of chopsticks running around.

    what is OMG mean?

    Why don;t you get a downloadable hard drive? That way you don't need so many cards! Reds got a couple of 512mB cards! (unless he's upgraded by now)

    Wow, 2am...now that's a badmintonfanatic for you!

    I found spot metering is not that useful. Centre weight metering is better. Manual gives more consistency except for some situations.
