  • Posted on: 8 Top Reasons To Use A Tripod When Taking Photos

    Never use a tripod for panning at a motor race. I have seen many try, give up and then hand hold. Cars travel to fast to be able to follow the action using a tripod. I have seen Tripods with long lenses on them being pointed at the end of a straight and the shot being taken at high shutter speed head on, no panning.

    I see the only advantage of this battery is the ability to update its firmware after a firmware update from the camera manufactures reduces, its ability to be efficient, or work properly.

    More like 652, the first number probably refers to the area its to be sold in.

    It's really good to see reviews like this of cheap alternative lenses. There are many new lenses like this plus mirror lenses that could be tested and compared to newer designs, for the cost of a tele converter you have a prime lens. Not everyone has the money for top quality lenses.

  • Posted on: Tamron 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 Di II VC HLD Review


    Quote:Not sure why review websites keep ignoring the Tokina 11-20mm f2.8 that replaced the very popular 11-16mm some time ago. Actually, I can probably take a guess that it's due to Tokina's poor marketing and slow distribution.

    Regardless, surely it's one of the most fitting alternatives to this and a good point for a direct comparison review?


    I agree you can't even get one of the shelf at the larger retailers , allows seems to be order only.

    I would have liked to see this lens tested on a higher resolution Nikon body, it would be imformative for existing lenses to be retested to compare with this lens. The testing results are now numerical 0-3500 LW/PH where previously they were classed as poor-excellent, excellent could have been 2500 LW/PH the new method is better but not comparable with previous results. Thanks for reviewing so quickly I am interested in a lens in this group.

    I understand these hi iso settings are usefull for surveillance work, think police or anti terrorism. Not all cameras will end up in the hands off people who shoot for the sake of a good photo, I believe nikon themselves actually mentioned this use when the camera was unveiled.

  • Posted on: Tamrac Announce Anvil Professional Backpacks

    I am always interested in new camerabags, unfortunately the Tamrac web site does not show very good pictures of how the bags look loaded with camera gear, just a generic photo of part of one bag interior with a body with lens , except the long tele bag, look at the Think Tank site to see how it should be done. Would I be interested in these bags Without decent photos I really don't know?

  • Posted on: Why Use A Support For Motorsport Photography?

    I find tripods the least useful accessory to take to a motor race, the only people who are able to use them successfully are the small number of professionals using a 600mm lens set up at the end of a long straight, and shooting approaching cars head on. Not a position accessible to amateurs who have catch fencing, marshals and professional photographers in there way. They are also not suitable for grandstands , you are also not panning in a flat curve the camera needs to move up or down as you pan., you need freedom of movement to pan smoothy.
    The monopod is however the best accessory you can take to a motor race, it simply supports the weight of your long lens without restricting movement, I use a ballhead on mine to support a 200-400 f4. when panning I set the ballhead loose holding the lens and camera body as if I was shooting without a support, this allows the camera and lens to rotate around me , I am not trying to rotate around a fixed point, when resting tighten the clamps. Buy a monopod which will give you the maximum height , allowing the foot to be on a lower step on the grandstand or lower down a embankment. Of the many thousands of photographers at motor races very very few try to use a tripod and these seem to end up shooting without it by the end of the day.

    "No silent wave motor means no AF on entry-level bodies"
    I'm pretty sure this does focus on all entry level bodies, its a "G" lens and has a internal focus motor, not the "D" variety which require a screwdriver drive from the camera body to focus.
