    Hi guys. This is my first photo day out with a good qualty camera. I was spending the day at a drag strip so already it was going to be tricky.

    Camera used : DSC-W80, DSC-T9 (testing) and the DSLR-A100 for main shots.

    My main drawbacks were the lack of a tripod or even a monopod so I had to rely on the rails and also little experience at taking photo's at such high speeds. I have been impressed with the results but may need to put these through post processing before I print them.

    Resized picci's below.

    What shutter speed did you use? Just wondering..

    Great shots! I have to agree that the one on two wheels is nice, but the 2 motorcycles is probably my favorite.

    You should take the picture of the car on two wheels into photoshop a bit more. It seems like the colors are faded a lil.

    Awesome pictures.

    Thank you. It's a shame it's my works camera but nice to know its available when I decide but I really would like my own soon. It was more a practice since I have always wants to get into photography but I was happy.

    I only remember post processing AFTER I took all the photo's so Lightroom helped slightly.

    Shutter speed used for most of the pictures was 1/160 sec. I was planning to increase it a bit more but I wanted to capture the speed aspect so it was a good challenge and a lot of fun.

    Heres the pic post pocessed
