thanks for the advice Daniel :G

I got a day of work today and myself and a few mates went out and I used the

Z3 in S mode and set the shutter on 1/250 and left everything else standard ( i think )

here is a link to the photos, some are a bit big so slow connections beware

I'm used to shoot both indoor mini-z, hard to do, and outdoor 1/8, 1/10 and bigfoots. Yesterday I did a session on the new bigfoots, the CEN with 5hp.

Minolta G400, always in manual mode.

Outdoors:
It depends on how the weather is. I'm very limited because I can't use a polarizer. Usually I shoot around the 1/200, mark. A bit faster if there's much sun, and ISO between 50 and 100, depending on the sun. I use the panning technique.

Indoors mini-z:
Iso100, shutter 1/100 (you must try some pics to set it), flash. I usually shoot in macro mode, and very close to the cars. Again using the panning technique.

As soon as I have the chance I'll post some pics.

Excellent pics RC18T. You're clearly getting the hang of shutter control because most of those are nice and crisp.

Enjoy your camera!

Here are some pics.

All the pics were taken while the cars were moving. I like to take the pics while people are driving, those are the the real action moments.

Mini-Z indoors

HI,

I got My Z3 yesterday and it's giving me problems connecting to my PC.... I tried on 3 different Machine with different OS.. ( 98, 2000 and NT) and the same result.. the camera does not seem to recognize the connection.. the screen never says "Initializing USB Connection"..

I got it over internet so returing the camera I want to keep as last resort..

If any one had similar problem please help... I am thinking of getting an USB card reader if camera connection does not work.. It it a good idea ?

The AV connection from camera is working fine.. An on those PCs other USB devices are working fine..

Regards,

Vikas
