    Post a pic of the rig you have. Shots look cool but agree with you on the second shot...overexposed

    Welcome to OT btw

    how do you process it to make it seem like the wheels are moving?

    Kelvin, you just take a shot with a long exposure (2+ seconds) and you can push your car while taking the shot. You get movement in your wheels and in the background while your car stays in focus. You need to have a mount/rig on your car that won't bounce... example would be www.stickypod.com

    yea, what XtremeSaturn said. That's how the pic was taken... but I'll have to leave the mount a secret since i don't have a paying job yet :)

    and yea i need to learn how to adjust my settings more on the camera. I like the 2nd pic's background more, but the car is too white. It'll just take some time, but so far i'm liking the results :)

    the hard part is keeping the camera steady. That mount will work, its just a matter of what's between the suction cups, and the semi-heavy camera. I did some more pics tonite, and i realized i was pretty lucky to snap that one i originally posted

    First shot is pretty damn nice.

    I remember seeing the vid posted on NASIOC a while back.

    I REALLY need to get my car up to the parkway, its so beautiful up there. Haven't been in the WRX yet :hs:

    yo BlackWRX, we'll have our 4th annual MTN cruise this coming June, we're thinking the 26th. Always a big showing, I expect over 100 cars this year

    How fast are you going to achieve the bluriness/sharpness of the first shot?

    You don't drive the car... You just attach the camera and push the car a few metres, making sure you're on perfectly flat ground with no bumps to upset camera mount...

    Really? Doesn't sound like it's fast enough to achieve sufficient motion blurring.
