I am waiting for the arrival of a T1i (500D) and will be using it with a Canon 200L F2.0 prime lens for taking night high school football pics as a volunteer parent team photographer. I also have a Canon 85L F1.8 that I used last year for high school basketball (same volunteer deal). I will be shooting JPEG for convenience. Any help on settings would be very appreciated.
I am considering shooting ISO 3200, AV mode, AI Servo, Center Pt focus, and AWB. The stadium lighting will be uneven. I would like to get 1/400 shutter speed. I would prefer to avoid Manual (requires too much on-field fiddling) and RAW (too much photoshop time) -- I'm just a hobbyist volunteer with a high learning curve.
How do these settings sound? Thanks for your input.
