    Went to the Supercross races Saturday night, and made the mistake of taking two manual focus lenses, Super Takumar 28mm f3.5, and a SMC Takumar 200mm f4. Although my keeper rate was rediculously low, I did manage a few decent shots...


    A shot with the 28mm from our seats....

    Panning attempt, have never tried it, and had many many poor shots, but got a few good ones.

    Image 2 is great! It's rather difficult to shoot moving objects with such a blurred background. Did you move your camera after it?

    Yes, I was following the bike when I shot. It is called panning, this was my first time trying it, and the vast majority of the photos sucked, but I did mange a few good ones, haha

    Nice panning, Is shot 1 from your seat ? If so the panning is that much more impressive.

    I would suggest cropping #2 to take the sign out of the frame. Other than that they are pretty good.

    Yes, I used the 28mm for that shot, the rest of these were with the 200MM, I actually wish I would have had a bit longer lens, but hey, I did manage some good shots, so it turned out ok. :mrgreen:
