Hi there! I'm looking to upgrade from my Canon EOS 800D and I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations for a good camera for sports photography. I've been using my 800D for the past two years to take sports photos, but I've found that it's not great in low light or gym settings. If anyone has any suggestions, I'd love to hear them!
What lens do you currently have? And what types of sports (sounds like indoors only)?
Currently I have a 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6, the lens works great for the outdoor sports I shoot. I shoot all of the sports at my school, but I only use my camera for outdoor sports (football, soccer, tennis, baseball, softball etc.) and I use the schools camera for indoor sports (basketball, volleyball, wrestling). The schools camera is a Sony a7iii with a 35-70mm lens, but I can’t use it with my current lens.
Are you happy with the camera you have at present, or are you looking for a different optic? What precisely is your current system not providing? Also, as always what is your budget - we can make suggestions, but we need to have some idea of that.
