    Rain never let up all morning so we setup a canopy tent at the corner of the track and shot from there all morning. Wanted to get on the track for shots but didn't want to drag the gear out into the rain.

    I shot all these with a Drebel, 70-200 f/4L, and 1.4x converter

    What shutter speed did you use to get the blurr in the background so sexy and keep the car itself so sharp?

    You know, I'm not sure what setting that one was. I shot at 1/60-1/100 most the day but a few I let the camera set the shutter speed so I'm not sure what that one was.

    For most rolling shots I like to do about 50mph and shoot 1/100 or so.

    Nice Skyline. Looks like a GTS. Is it a GTR?

    I was being lazy, didn't want to hunt through 300 pics to find that one. Thats why I said between 1/60 and 1/100. But since that wasn't good enuff for some, its 1/100

    nice pics, what do you think of the canon 70-200 f/4L? I picked up a rebel xt last week and have been seriously looking at picking up this lens for it.

    Next to the 50mm f/1.8 I think it is the best bang for the buck lens Canon offers. You can find them for around $500 used, or $600 new, all day long. It's an awesome lens for that price. Decent reach with 200mm + 1.6x rebel crop factor and a fairly light lens to carry around. One of Canon's sharpest lenses available. Only downfall is that it is f4 and not f2.8 which only matters if you're shooting indoor low light or something. I haven't had a problem with my f4 in substandard light.

    Thanks. The 2.8 would be nice, but it is a lot more expensive and I rarely shoot indoors where i need the large zoom. My only concern was how it did outside in cloudy conditions, but from your pictures it looks like it did fine.

    Yeah, it did fine in the cloudy rainy conditions. Plus I was using a 1.4x tc which slows it down a whole f stop so I was actually using a f5.3 or whatever it works out to.

    2.8 + 1.4x = f/4
    2.8 + 2x = F/5.6

    Thats wonderful but I was using a f4 lens with tc so it would be f5.6

    oh, yeah that it would be 5.6 I forget the f/4 is out there sometimes. I know its a good lens but it seems like a shame to have an f/4 and no tripod collar for an L lens. but thats just me

    No tripod collar? I know it doesn't come with one but there is one available, in both black and white.

    seems silly to me that a L lens requires a 100+ dollar investment afterwards for tripod use. I just picked up a used copy of the 2.8 for 780 shipped. Isn't as pretty as new, but the glass is fine and thats all that matters to me.

    Good work with the pans.

    The only thing tha tkind of bothers me is the horizon on some of the shots. If you're going to angle the pan angle it a lot otherwise fix the horizon. Some of the shots look slightly UE as well.

    Heres my favorite:

    Thanks, this was actually the first time I have ever panned a car. The shots look UE because it was so dark and dismall that day. If you would have been there in person you would think these pics look better than they did that day, if that makes sense. It was a dark grey rainy day.

    I didn't notice the horizon but now that you mention it I will go back and look. As well as be more carefull of it next time.

    Yeah, but maybe that is why the lens is so affordable. I mean at $580 brand new for L glass I'm not complaining. If they would have added the ring to the package and charged $700 for the lens it wouldn't be nearly the bargain. And the lens isn't very heavy so its not too big of a deal.
