I've good idea what the comments will be for this! I've been absent from the site a bit lately having shot images at my sons garage track day at a local circuit. This is him and his senior technician in the garage MR2 - a bog standard car - it spins easy. I was trying to get something different using the puddle as a lot of my car shots can look a bit static.
I shot 2395 frames in 6.5 hours. Both camera bodies on drive and using a 50/500 on tripod and 70/300 hand held. All shot JPG. Imagine using RAW for all these shots - would still be processing at Christmas. The light was continually changing and we had some rain initially. I shot mostly on manual using a Sekonic hand meter set for incident readings as auto settings can be very unreliable in these circumstances - puddles, light track, cloud/sun.
I was under my fishing brolly when raining - the track's own photographer didn't turn up because of the weather - very 'professional'! The track day organising company are now after me for images!
So, here is an example. EOS 7D with 70/300 Canon zoom. IS on - position 2. (Vertical damping only) About 200mm at this point I think - shooting in bursts of 4 or 5 images and continually zooming. Focus on servo most of the time. Most images were discarded in the first run through as there was huge duplication. ISO400. Manual. 1/2000 @ f8 as I remember.
Must try slower shutter speeds next time.
