Default Motorsport Phillip Island 500 (2017)

Some motorsport touring car photos from Sunday at the Supercars Phillip Island 500.
The Phillip Island GP circuit sure is a great place to shoot motorsport with low fences, vantage points all around the track & beautiful ocean views.

Thanks Graham, always get a bit of practice with panning this time of the year with the Superbikes, Phillip Island Classic, Formula 1 Grand Prix and Supercars.
Shooting mirrorless now, Micro 4/3 love the size, weight of the system & the 2x crop factor of the sensor (huge benefit for sports & wildlife). Using an Olympus OM-D E-M1 and have an OM-D E-M10 (which I use as a second body or my kids use it). These shots were taken with the E-M1 and 40-150 f2.8 Pro (80-300mm 35mm equivalent) and Panasonic Leica 100-400mm (200-800mm 35mm equivalent, great reach). I can fit these two lenses plus a 12-40mm f2.8 lens, 60mm macro, E-M10 body & Speedlite all in a medium size shoulder bag.
Shooting with the E-M1 is a bit more of a challenge, C-AF does a very good job but not in the same same class as a Nikon D5, D500 or Canon 1DX but I get good results with it. The E-M10 C-AF is just about unless but it makes a good second body for general shooting (picked this camera up on sale very cheap).

Regards Tom.
