->> What focal length do you all prefer for backboard cams? And do you typically mount them left or right side? Thanks in advance for any info.

->> I typically use a 16-35 at 16mm but I have also used a 14mm before. I ended up cropping the 14 nearly any time I used it though, which is why I decided to just sell it. Don't forget to make some sort of gobo to block the reflection or you'll end up with a line going through your images from the stripes painted on the floor.
