p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Hartford Powerboat Races


Went to this past weekend's powerboat races on the CT river near downtown Hartford. I only went for Sat but learned some things I'd do different for next time.

Those are some small powerboats. I bet in a slight chop, the pilots are jarred and jounced around pretty well. 3 and 4 are my picks Warren.

Thanks, probably why they race on rivers! One almost flipped in the AM, but it happened so fast I missed all but the landing.

They run these boats in Lewiston Idaho. "Thunder on the Snake" Crazy bastards! They do flip. What great captures. The shutter speed and crop on the first two are awesome. You could punch up the color a tad.

Plywood and rooster tails. Fun day!

Thanks, I made some rookie mistakes, shot the 500 f4 wide open (it's much better just 1 stop down) and my shutter speeds were a touch too slow. A CP would help, but at $300 it'll be a while before I can afford one (but the boats won't be back for a year!!). Next time I'll stay later and/or go on Sunday when the larger class races.

You would love the Jet Boat races out of Riggins Idaho! They race the boats UP the rapids! Yeah, they catch some air.

I get the CP $$ thing. I just bought them for my smaller lenses. Ouch. You have a lot of glass to cover on that one.

The CP for the 500 is a drop in 52mm. Has it's own screw drive for adjustment, probably why the price is so high.

Interesting. Haven't even held one of those. It's on the bucket list.
