I was actually anxious to test the Nikon Z6's capability in photographing a fast paced sport like Speed Skating. The opportunity came on the 5th & 6th of January 2019 when the 4th SEA Open Short Track Trophy was held at the The Rink @JCube. So just how fast is a speed skater ? So just to give you an idea , Lucas Ng Singapore's top Speed Skater who won the 500m event did it with an average speed of 39kph. The top olympic speed skaters reach top speeds of over 48kph !! Singapor

It has been a very busy couple of months but I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to photograph top class badminton action at the recent Singapore Open held at the Singapore Indoor Stadium. I have photographed many very fast action sports from Ice Hockey , Floorball , Soccer and others , the sport of badminton to me is one of the toughest to photograph well. Capturing the player in an appealing dynamic manner with the shuttlecock clearly defined and as close to the

The 2017 Sepang MotoGP where you have the powerful 1000cc class motorcycles ridden by the top riders in the world and racing over 20 laps at the Sepang International Circuit. Plenty of top class action to photograph. Note : all images were photographed from the spectator grandstands and the hillstands. Took the Nikon D850 for a spin at this event , setup was as follows: Nikon D850 Nikkor 80-400mm f4.5-5.6 Nikkor 1.7x Teleconverter ISO400 to ISO3200 1/20s to 1/50s (for panning
I already know that the Nikon D850 is capable of photographing sports when I was only using the default 7 Frames Per Second High speed burst rate. The 7 FPS (default) burst rate is of course slower in comparison to my Nikon D500's 10 FPS and my Nikon D4's 12 FPS but the "slower burst rate" is not really a good excuse missing peak action when photographing sports. My main goal was to try out Nikon's 3D Auto Focus tracking mode implementation in the D850. In this mode the Nikon
Thanks to Nikon Singapore for wanting to work with me as one of the thirty two Nikon D850 Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa campaign photographers.

This games is also known as the Kuala Lumpur 2017 29th SEA Games. There will be 11 nations participating and a total of 38 sports to be played in this upcoming edition. I am really hoping
