I like that image. The steering wheel is on the wrong side of the car, though.

Nice image for just getting started.

Depending on the shutter speeds being used, I sometimes will turn IS on and sometimes just leave it off. If shutter speeds are running above 1/1000 second, I personally question how much good IS is really doing and keep it turned off, but once speeds start slowing down image stabilization definitely helps. Testing the E5 a couple of weeks ago on a Friday evening at the races, I used the IS mode 2, which is for panning and captured the image below at 1/320 second. I'm hoping to get back there again this Friday evening and do even more panning work after the sun has gone down.

The steering wheel is definitely on the wrong side of the car. Just ask Henry Ford. LOL

Ted

I live in Australia and we drive on left side of the road and hence we have steering wheel on right side of the car.

Harj,
I thought IS3 is for panning and had switched IS3 on. After your comments I read the manual and understood I should have used IS2.
Any way I will try more today with IS2 and see what happens.

Greg, your image is awesome. Also i understand now that my technique was wrong. I used shutter priority with 1.5 second speed and tried in evening while back from office. Your photo reflex the mood and the way sharpness is captured is mind blowing.

Yeah, I know. Ted and I were just hinting that the whole country drives on the wrong side of the road. LOL This forum has never been stuffy or shy.

Good luck with your panning practice.
