[size=24][size=18]I tend to use aperture priority for control of the shots in regards to the varying length of the boats...On this day the weather was pretty crappy,,mostly overcast to dark..I had to use ISO 640-800..f 6.3 in all shots.2/3 stop over on all shots with a resulting shutter speed of 1600-2000sec...I would prefer on a better day to use the lowest ISO I can get away with without sacrificing the shutter speed which needs to be fairly high to catch these boats.as they are coming into the turns at around 200kph...As far as tips go,I don't use program mode around water .. use aperture or shutter priority and under or over expose as necessary..canon equipment..[/size][/size]

Nitro! those are awesome! I love speed boats. I really like the red boat. I agree, canon equipment is a must.

It was kind of a joke but for a while canon had th e fastest on the market (40D and 1ds MKII)

The d3 is pretty impressive with 6 8 or 9 fps but still.

indeed alex,

and these shots are full of energy. I can feel the agressive speed even without panning (as mentionned earlier)

I really enjoyed these pictures, what kind of zoom are we talking here? I would assume these are crops. Feel like telling us what lens? Thanks for the info you've given already, still pushing a pretty fast shutter in overcast. I'm very impressed, I really like the shots with the boat that is turning.
