    Canon pixma and A4 Canon paper, shooting all day Saturday for a local pro who has set up a van with one main computer and 2 sony printers that sends the shots to 3 other computer touch screens so they can scroll through the shots, should earn some serious money i'm on extra because i got the event,i got him a 4 day event at easter but can't get enough good photographers to cover it. He wants me to take local photographers to these practise days and vet them :shock::shock:

    How many photographers do you need at an event like that? Are these ones also dog events?

    The one on saturday there are 4 rings (yes dogs) with me and the pro shooting and another lad working the computer, could do with another tog but it is too late now, i'm going to set up one camera on a tropod on the ring next to the one i'm shooting and fire it remotely while shooting the other ring should be fun :mrgreen:, why are you going to catch a plane over for the weekend

    Naa I don't think I'd qualify ;-) I just wondered how many were usually needed at this kind of event.

    Last autumn 2007 I was in the USA taking pics at a dragracing event (Night of Fire, Orlando FL) and there were these two guys from the same company, one standing on each side of the wall, and each had a D300 (one guy also had a D3) and two wall mounted remote firing flashes, I was impressed by their setup :)

    Awesome, as usual. Great detail and spot-on focus.

    I have a silly question-with the right lens, could my D50 take pictures of this caliber, or would that be an unrealistic expectation?

    Cheers mate, Yes it could with any lens 150mm upwards, not sure if the focus would track fast enough with the D50 never used one but all you have to do is pre focus just infront of the jump and then its down to timing, i still use a canon 10D now and again and that can do it
    this is with the 10D pre focused, i was laid on my back both eyes open left eye whatching for the horses

    Now I have some renewed hope!! One question-how do you pre-focus on an object not yet in your view? Sorry if that's a dumb question.

    If you were to shoot at F5.6 1/640 and focus on the bar it should be ok and get down low, non of the dog shots are pre focused and i think all were F2.8
