Just taken the plunge and ordered an EOS 500mm F4 L - apparently prices go up 7% in Europe next week - for that I expect elements made out of solid platinum, not just fluorite!! It arrives next Tuesday, I can't wait!

Niall,
you're going to love the 500 - it's a great lens and good for so many different subjects.

Congratulations Niall!

Gero is correct, you will love it! I'm assuming yours is a II, you'll love it even more from what I hear. This is a slippery slope you know, you'll start wondering what the 300 and 800 would do to your image making efforts!

On a slightly different note, thoughts and prayers go out to the victims of the horrific train accident in Santiago de Compostela in Spain - 78 dead and 131 injured when a high speed train left the tracks in a curve just outside of town. Unfortunately, initial reports indicate that the train was travelling at 190kph on a stretch limited to 80kph.

I've got the 300 but it's not quite long enough

I went out to our local university to watch the Formula SAE autocross action last weekend.

This was really my first time trying panning of cars to capture the action...I seem to have a hard time getting the whole car in focus during the shot...more so at the slowest shutter speeds. Any ideas on how to better the shots would be greatly appreciated.

Some samples.

I see that often, too, especially with aircraft tails. I suspect it's to do with the change in angle, relative to the moving object. The slower your shutter speed, the more time the object has to move and get out of focus/motion blurred.

Not sure how to combat it really other than use a faster speed or just concentrate on the driver or pilot and get them sharp, at least. Anyone else...?

Yes, Jo is in the right of it: simple geometry is working against you at the slower shutter speeds. When you pan with an subject moving across in front of you, various bits of it are moving at slightly different rates and directions through your frame even when the subject, as a whole, is tracked perfectly. So at the slower speeds you can expect only some part of the subject to be sharp, no matter how good your technique.

just go with it. As long as the helmet is in focus, the rest can be as blurred as it can be. That looks even faster, especially at more extreme angles.

No zoom pull here - just the car doing it's thing while panning, Velvia back in the day...

For race fans and Senna fans, an absolutely brilliant Honda commercial,



If you have not seen the movie "Senna", do yourself a favor and see it. It is incredibly moving.

That sounds like what must have been going on with this one from five years ago:

That is one gorgeous image Peter! And a great illustration of what's being discussed here. You're yet one more example of the stunning talent that resides out there.

I'd have a 60" print of that on the wall before the motor drive had cooled.

Zane, here is an old post of mine to the Sports forum (2008) where I was looking for help with this issue. As everyone has said, it's the changing angles and distances at various points on the car.

My OSH plans might have changed. May have a B25 gig, and that would change everything. I have tickets on hold for a late Monday night arrival into MKE.

Booked three B25 shoots this afternoon, we'll most likely base out of Georgetown and use Glenn's landscape as backdrops.

Assuming Devil Dog is one of them yes? They're heading up Sunday morning if my last info is correct.

DD will be the platform if it all comes about, at OSH and back here in The Lone Star.

We're closing in on having our own, but I'm not rushing it, prosperity can be a bit daunting in and of itself. I was a pretty content and blessed guy before all this other stuff started. I want to make darn sure that I stay that way and don't let "stuff" cloud my vision.

Know what the commission is on that excavator? About 100K. I used to love to lease them with a purchase option, because then you have a whack coming in monthly from each of the machines you have out on lease. Eventually the client has so much in them in lease payments, their accountant tells them to go ahead and exercise the purchase option and walla, you get another chunk. That was the second most fun job I ever had
