Default Motor Racing V8 Supercars (Sandown 500)

Went to the V8 Supercars (Sandown 500) today and took some pics.
All shots were with MF, used the an Olympus Tcon-17 (1.7x TC, 1020mm (35mm equivalent)) for some & experimented with a ND8 filter for some slower shutter speed shots to see what results I coued get with the Panasonic FZ150.






Tcon-17 (1.7x TC)






Tcon-17 (1.7x TC)

1/40 sec (ND8 filter)



Tcon-17 (1.7x TC)



1/15 sec (ND8 filter)



1/10 sec (ND8 filter)

G'day TG

Your pix bring back memories .... I used to shoot at Sandown back a couple of thousand years ago in the 60s when I was a GM-H employee: I was running Pentax + a Tamron 80-250 f3,8 & push-processing Ektachrome - they were running Monaros etc etc

I particularly like the ND pix > where the movement of the vehicles is coming through. To me, the pix of hi-speed cars shot at hi-speed settings to freeze the movement loses the appeal of the high speed; noisy action that gets the adrenalin running thru the veins

Your exposure & focus is spot on - you should be very pleased with these and no doubt will put a couple up onto the lounge room wall too

Regards, Phil

Thanks Phil,

You should go to Historic Sandown on the 9-11 November. They have the Formula 5000 cars, Historic Touring Cars, Groupo C & A and many more.
It's alway a great day.

Tom.

very interesting shots, the 1/10 and 1/15 seems to bit to extreme for my liking. But it is a interesting exercise in photography. I much prefer the 1/30, there is still sharpness with the blur.

Looks like a nice race day.

The 1/10 & 1/15 shots are definitely unusable but it is a challenge to get a moving race car even close to in focus
