Had a good half day out with my friends who was doing some testing on his race car.

Lucky I brought my gears with me, was a good time to test the new Nikon D700 and Nikkor AF-S 70-300VR

Here are some of my pics:

the shutter speed u had going is clearly a perfect one because the cars are perfectly sharp, next time u should try slower and slower to achieve a better and better effect

thanks guys.

Yes i had tried pushin the shutter down to around 1/100, the background blur were good, but my focus blur out too :oops: , will need more practices i guess.

at the end i just stick with 1/160-1/200 as i have to get some clean shots for my friend. only took 50 or so of action shots that day so i am pretty happy with the keeper rate.

Keep in mind that he was using a 70-300mm telephoto lens. When panning at such long focal lengths, you need a faster shutter speed to avoid to much blur.

when I'm taking photos of mountain bikes, i can rarely go bellow 1/125 or they start to get some blur (unless you are supper perfect!!!)

were u on the highway in another movin car travellin similar speed as your shooting subject or were u standin on the side of highway and shoot subject?

there are big differences between the two. second to last pic, the CLK was doing at around 180-190 kms/hr coming out of a long coner.

awsome shots, really crystal clear!

do you mind telling me how you did them, i know it sounds wierd but i'm having a problem with panning, ie, did you use a mono-pod, manual focus or auto?
