CXBL Eastern Event 1

May 20th, 2010 / 4:36am

Well, finally getting a chance to write after a busy week.
The Event 1 for eastern was nothing short of surprises for this season. We began our day at 8am on Saturday. Clouds covered the sky and the games began. Breaking the seal of MXL would be Armada vs the step up RXL team Vigilantes. Over the course of the day we got to see a lot of RXL teams that played in the 2009 season step up to MXL, Vigilantes, Fishsticks, SPK and the winners of 2009 RXL Maniacs.

Obviously with such as dramatic change in franchises the Event 1 would be an interesting one. And the games were. Only 2 of the 6 games being somewhat of a slaughter the rest were quite close and hard fought battles.

However to make the day worse after the first game the rain came. Complete downpour to the point where ponchos were needed and players had to reequip themselves and loaders to stop the rain from ruining their sight and their paint.

With Mirabel’s high end facility, mud was no issue, and the terrain was only altered by being able to slide abit farther than before. This allowed for great shots and action when players would make quick dives from break to the snake. available domains .

As the day continued so did the rain, however no complaints and each team continued to play and perform. The weather took a break for the last game of the day. Heroes vs Fishsticks was a great fight to see. Both teams knew each other and knew what they were up against. However Fishsticks having past CXBL Eastern champs on it gave them an edge to win the match.
Finally as the clock whinned down to zero the excitement was there on the Fishsticks team and as well on the ref’s and myself. Done for the day we went back to the hotel, spent the night uploading shots since we were to exhausted to go out and explore montreal.

Day 2…

Well, again the weather came back with abit of a vegance… We got little to no rain but got some snow while driving to the field. We knew it would be a cold day. Even the CXBL allowed 3 layers due to the conditions. However no team was down on it, excitement was in the air for sure. With one of the biggest games of the 2009 season impact vs cowboys; starting first game of the 2010 season we knew we would be in for a show. However it was not the case. Cowboys major roster changes made them a weaker team by far making the tied game of 2009 a 11-3 victory for Impact.

The action through out the day was clear. Superman dives to make it to your bunker and fast bumps up the snake side made great gun battles or sometimes lack there of.

Our other noticible change from the 2009 season was the bottom team sheilds. Who were seen to be a walk over team to all other competitors was not the case. Arnold revamped the Sheild franchise and made a lean mean fighting machine. Foundlenertile This team was out for blood. With stats of 2-5 last season, they are already on the road to breaking those 2009 stats with their 1-1.

Furthermore, the sheild’s were not the only team to make major changes to the roster. The kamikazee brought in some heavy hitters and created a power house team. Surely they will be the team to watch this season to see if they can compete against the lengedary Impact team.

Overall the event was intense and hopefully we shall see the same thing for Event 2…
We have 3 games to watch.

Momentum vs Kamikazee The next team other than mirabel that can really put up a fight to the powerhouse.

Moncton vs Halifax The Atlantic battle, Who will win? Nova Scotia homegrown or New Brunswick leaner team.

Moncton vs Cowboys Moncton will need the will, and this will be a big game for cowboys to try to stay top 4.

Theses will be some great games.

Past event update

March 26th, 2010 / 12:41pm

So finally got to try out the 1D markIII and 300mm f/2.8L. Wow is all to say. Well maybe not all.
The 1D compared to the 40D is a major upgrade. At high ISO even 3200ISO the grain is looking like the 40D at 800ISO. Which is amazing. The ability do basketball and get clean crisps shots is worth it. As well the 1D AF compare to the XXD line is far superior which helps with basketball and players quickly going up for a shot. I believe this will allow for better dive photos for paintball and for the quick action of bunkering. Lastly the 10FPS allows to hold the trigger down on high action to get the shot you want. Really i’m quite impressed with the 1D and doubt i can ever go back to anything less.

Now… On to the gravy of this. The 300mm F/2.8L. Crisp, Clear, and Vivid would best describe this lens. Built like a tank and heavy too, but will be a major upgrade to the photos. Remember your shots sharpness at Low DOF is only as good as your glass.

The 300mm and 1D paring makes for clear sharp photo. To the point that you can see the ice shavings.

As well getting those moments at the end of the game.

Basketball using the 1D and the 300mm makes for an awesome combo, however can only be used when shooting across court. Overall those great quality.

Lastly using the 70-200 and the 1D the quality is amazing. Where the 40D lacked, the 1d gets sharper photo and better at high ISO as well

300mm and 1D

February 7th, 2010 / 11:52am

Finally we have made the move to go to a 1D series (III), sadly not the MarkIV, but hey you can’t get it all.

As well, we finally bought the 300mm f/2.8L. Now this bad boy is suppose to be the best lens from canon. So i can’t wait to try it out.
The summer should be quite exciting, sadly though i need to wait til march 7th before the gear arrives through the mail. Hopefully the postal system is quick!
Stay tuned.
I’ll be posting shots as soon as it arrives.

Playonpics.com Trying Video

December 13th, 2009 / 2:39am

In early October we have purchased a video camera. Now able to do 1080p Video for events.

So far we have tried it out at a K-os concert and a few paintball practices. While these’s are just tests, we are hoping to do some more shots over the Christmas break and try it out at Halifax City United practice.

With the help of Jeff Barieau, Kayden Roy and Josh Gastelum, we are hoping to be at more events in the coming future to cover some video aspect of the events we already cover in photos stills.
