    What would be some good settings to shoot pictures of a moving car.....FROM a moving car.

    ISO settings?
    Aperature settings?

    Any help is appreciated.

    if you want that pan effect (assuming both cars are going around the same speed) go with a 1/30

    aperture/iso settings would depend on how much light there is...

    1/30 is going to blur with the slightest of movement

    play around with the shutter speed... go a little higher, a little lower and see what kind of blur you get. If you want the typical tunnel vision sort of blur where you want only the car in focus, make sure your aperture is wide open

    I usually put the camera in Aperture priority and shoot somewhere between f/11 and f/13, depending on the conditions.

    usually between 1/80 and 1/100 of a second, on a bright sunny day I'd say go with ISO 100 and use Tv mode.

    Around 1/30sec shutter.
    You don't want anything much slower, or there will be camera shake, nor anything much faster, or where won't be enough motion blur.
    As for ISO and aperture. Use whatever works in that situation.

    Might be a bitch on a sunny day.
    Get a set of neutral density filters too.

    1/30-1/60 is the shutter speeds that have worked the best for me

    not knowing exactly what you're going for, it's kinda hard to give exact settings...

    there's a book "how to photograph cars" by james mann. in it most of his rolling shots are from a camera somehow mounted on teh car, and teh car actually being PUSHED very slowly through a few second long exposure.

    this is kinda relevant.. dunno how helpful ;) http://www.iphotoforum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=15925&highlight=
