Default Motorsport (slow shutter speeds)

Here are some slower shutter speed motorsport shots taken with the E-M1 and the Panasonic Leica 100-400mm at the Sandown 500. Love taking these type of shots getting part of the car focused and the rest with lots of motion blur.
These are not very pleasing to a lot of people especially to non photographers who think the shot is out of focus and don't realize how technically difficult these shots are especially 3/4 pans compared to straight pans (panning but car also coming towards the camera).

1

300mm 1/60 f11 ISO200


2

300mm 1/40 f8 ISO100


3

300mm 1/40 f10 ISO100


4

200mm 1/60 f6.3 ISO200


5

250mm 1/50 f10 ISO200


6

200mm 1/30 f11 ISO100


7

200mm 1/30 f10 ISO100


8

200mm 1/10 f18 ISO100


9

200mm 1/10 f18 ISO100

10

200mm 1/10 f20 ISO100

Found this last shot very interesting thought the dark diagonal lines in the shot might have been rain at first but don't think it is. Not sure what the effect it is due to the slow shutter speed maybe someone here knows.

I like these, a lot. Great feel of motion, yet the front-end is in-focus. Excellent technique.

There is some odd effect with a micro 4/3 when panning with verticals in frame at slower shutter speeds. It looks like a jagged streak more than blur.

It can make spectators, poles or fences look really strange.

I think that's what that is in the number 10 shot.

The explanation I saw reminded me of how in the old movies the wagon wheels go backwards at certain speeds.

Well said by Greg. Those shots do provide an impressive feel of speed.
