Race tracks...

Post by wild weasel »

I thought it would be nice to kick off with a new topic about everything that´s got to do with racing......it´s a challenge, cause it´s nice to have movement in this kind op photography, meaning longer shutter times and steady hands (especially when you don't have VR/IS like i do, it's time i will get myself a 70-200 2.8 VR :mrgreen: )....anyways, i hope you like it.

kind regards Menno

@ Peewee: thanx for your input and pictures, nice to see some different stuff here...and by the way, thanks for filling me in!

@ amarx: VR (or IS like you have) can make a huge difference. You're keeping rate will increase by 50% or maybe even more.....i will probably get my ass burned over for this, but to my opinion (and i am a Nikon photographer) the IS of canon is more efficient then the VR of Nikon, anyhow, it sure increases the sharpness when doing longer shutter times...

Regards Menno

At 1.96m I know I would definately get "KRAMP" in a small car like that :shock:

But I also love the old-timer bikes.
