Covering Prep Football
By Timothy C. "TC" Baker

Just a quick note for those interested. I have posted a page with results from testing the Kodak DCS520 last night at our first football game. There are 6 images from different setting of the camera's ISO setting and flash settings for the Canon 430EZ. Those 6 pics are duplicated with copies that were given auto-levels in PhotoShop 4.0.

I thought this might help seeing that most games don't start until next week.

My final conclusion was that the 1000 ISO setting was probably the best for overall content, however, I think I will probably use the 1250 and just wait till the action is a bit closer.

These photos had not been imaged other than auto levels. That is the first step of imaging but at the same time the last step for the photographer at the paper that I work for. The rest of the imaging is left to the imaging techs. I also realize that due to the size limitations of web graphics, the noise of the photos doesn't really show up. Also, the fact that the computer I was working on is calibrated for our press doesn't help much, either.

If anyone has any further questions or doesn't quite understand what is meant by what is on the page, feel free to email me.
