    Flash disrupts concentration, so please do not use it out of consideration for the participants, even if the organisers do not enforce a no-flash rule.

    actually, for all indoor sports, flash photography is either highly discouraged OR disallowed.

    so those folks with f/1.8 lens, or even f/1.4 lens will be grinning from ear to ear...

    Hi I would like to join for the photoshoot as well, and also see your instructor break some baseball bats with his shin.

    Ruthie, you can see blood in Bangkok too

    Any idea how low is the ceiling, and what colour? Can we use bounce flash? I think that is much less distracting than direct flash and the photos look much better too. Usually these places have high ceilings though.

    Tweakmax, how big is the competition area?(L x B) Also, how close are the photographers allowed to go and are there any restrictions?

    Not very sure about the competition area, but just make sure you don't step onto the tatami map.

    Just wondering how close I can go as I don't have a fast telephoto yet.

    The last time I shot something like this, I had one foot on the mat.

    I think a medium tele should be enough

    As long as you dun step onto the tatami I think should be ok (for your own safety also as the fighters may crash into you and your camera)

    Default who went to the karate comp??

    I just want to know who went to the karate competition in Cheng San CC. Identify yourself by stating what you brought there ( example, the one with the crumpler bag, etc....) By the way, im the one with he nikon coolpix885. I took short video clips there instead of pictures because my camera too slow. Bythe time the digital camera's shutter react, the action is gone liao.
