    I finally got to take some pics of the local SCCA Solo II autocross events from this year. Every time they had one, I had something else going on.

    C&C welcome

    hi, it's charity
     
  10. I'd be saying, Hi charity... now pay me, or at least give me some coupons for some free food. I think Ronald Mcdonald can afford $100 for some pics.

    The autox pics were with a Canon 10D, 70-200 f/2.8L IS, B+W circular polarizer. Shot in TV (shutter priority) mode, 1/100 or 1/80 shutter speed. Aperture was around f/10, ISO 200, cloudy white balance.

    I wish I lived closer to high speed tracks to get some real racing but most tracks (ie Poconos) is 3-5 hours away :(

    Just picked up a 20D so the 10D becomes the back up and the 350D collects dust. I'll probably buy a 30D in a few months at the rate I'm buying cameras lol

    [​IMG]

    Next autoX to test out the 20D will be June 25th.
     

  19. :squint: don't forget to call me this time...

    Congrats on the new camera :bigthumb: Sell the rebel and the 20d and get a 30d and a lens ftw :bigthumb:

    or you could just keep up your collection, you're getting closer and closer to having every digital SLR body that canon makes :mamoru:

    5D plus sports/action shots .. pass. Plus I have no desire for a FF camera.

    My original upgrade path was 350D, 10D, 1D MKII but I threw in the 20D in the mix. I thought the 10D would suffice as my back up to a 1D MKII but I just decided to get the 20D since they are cheap nowadays plus the extra 2 fps and extra 2 mp are nice.
     
  23. you need the extra mp? well yea I guess if you were going to try to get a job that'd come in handy becuase from what I've seen 8mp is the cut off :)

    I'd skip the 30d and aim for the 1d next, keep 20 as backup.
