Your panning technique is nothing but stunning! Are these seven "before" and one "after" pics?

Thanks ya'll. Roy, all of these shots were taken handheld. I HAVE a monopod and tripod but, aside from trying to shoot the moon, they never seem to come out of their cases.

Im with Tim. All the shoots i do at the race track and at airshows are hand Held. I Just cannot Imagine panning With a tripod. Not even a Monopod. It Would restrict my Ability To Move quickly. If you are after One shot Ok. But I have Caught some Good action(I.E Accidents, Spinouts) because i was able To move quickly. The downside Is that some Shots might Be Slightly less Sharp Because I Moved at a slower Shutter Speed.

It's been a little while since I stopped in to this forum... but this thread reminds me of a lot of photos I've taken at Watkins Glen with my old K1000. Here's a few from 1995 (from PhotoCDs that were made at the time), being a K1000 it goes without saying that they were completely manual. The lens was a fairly cheap Quantaray 70-210mm. I did a little color fiddling but that's about it.

I would agree that manual focus is the way to go for motorsports photography...

Here's your basic 911...



How about a Bugatti EB110 racer? I figured that this was something I would only see once...



This one's not very sharp but it's always fun to catch the flames.



Ferrari 348...



A Spice Oldsmobile.



Thanks for the Sebring photos, Tim!
