Islanders conquer Saraburi Warlords

Following is a few pics of the October 6, 2013 match between the Phuket FC “Islanders” (AKA the Southern Sea Warriors) and the Gulf Saraburi FC “Warlords”; Played at Phuket FC’s Surakul Stadium, the home team prevailed 1-0. For full match report, click here. All the following photos were taken with a Nikon 1 V1 camera, using maximum ISO of 3200, and shutter speeds between 1/200 – 1/300, and aperture of between F5 to F5.6, and focal length of between 20-30 mm (crop factor x 2.7 i.e. <80mm in 35mm equiv. terms) ┬áNote: Under such conditions (night time, stadium lights, fast moving subjects) shooting at lower ISO would require shutter speeds of 1/60 or slower, which is impractical… ┬áIdeally, a faster, telephoto lens (e.g. F2.8 @ 200mm+) would do the trick, but such lens is unavailable and even if it were, would cost a furtune… So what you see is as good as it gets…
