and C the last card I shot ( the sheep moms day) was shot at
1/25th f/13 ISO400 148MM on a 18-270 lens
(on a tripod)
on my bigger lens I used to shoot ISO800 f/29 zoomed to what ever ( cant think ) and 1/13 to 1/10 usually ( on a tripod)
both of these are no flash...
eta #2... do you have any idea what the diaphragm is on that lens?
(that will effect your shutter speed)
I only use my 50 prime for portraits its like a neekid eye lens... did the camera come with any other len's
your F stop is so narrow that you are only focused at a tiny little section of the center of the card... if you widen that up you will have more of the card in focus... so make your f stop a little bigger? ( and watch your light meter)
that lens is one fast puppy you have... but your cards not moving so, you dont have to be at 125 to catch it in the act, if you have a tripod you can drop that down to let in the light and get good card shots.
