Default Using The 70-300 At The Track..

Man, was it miserable out there today. I actually skipped two races (I usually never do that) on the inside turf course and stayed inside the clubhouse where the air conditioning was wonderful.

Just cherry-picked my favorites for the day and loaded them to my website. Lots of other images I'm going to work through and slowly add over time.

E30, 70-300 Zuiko, Aperture Priority, Large Superfine in-camera JPEG's with the Standard Noise Filter setting, +1 sharpening and Auto Gradation. I played with the ISO and aperture settings the first couple of races before settling on ISO 400 because, at the f8 setting I chose to use, I needed the higher setting to keep shutter speeds up where I like.





Two riders and a total of one horse..











Quick question.....who would you guess has been ahead the entire trip around the track?

Beautiful image Greg, what kind of shutter speeds were you using?

It varied, but between 1/1000 to 1/2000 second was pretty much the norm.

Great shots. The 70 300 paired with the E 30 make a great combination. You're not in good light that is, going to get much better from any lens.

Very nice shots Greg.
There must be something wrong with my E-520 and 70-300.
It will NOT get shots like that. LOL...
