    Ill be heading down to Florida next week to watch the 12 Hours of Sebring and it will be my first time really putting my new camera to work.

    What I would like to know is some tips on shooting the cars that will still produce some good shots. They will very rarely be standing still, so I have to overcome blurring the most. I figure a higher shutter speed will help, but what else?

    fast shutter will just make the car look like it's parked on the track (aka it'll look dumb) so learn to pan.

    Seconded.
     

  6. This might sound dumb but practice on cars dirving on the highway. I'm not lying, I'm not ashamed to admit that it's the way I learned. I'd rather look stupid for a little while taking pictures of normal cars on the highway than miss shots of awesome cars on the track! :eek3: :bigthumb:
