keep the car you are riding in and the car you are shooting the same speed.

if both cars are going 40mph shoot at 1/40

if both cars are doing 60mph shoot at 1/60

and so on, you get the idea.

Yeah just try to keep the exposure at the same speed as the car, such as what CH@D said above, and remember if it's too bright you can just raise the f/ stop. It's not like it matters about the bokeh really haha, the bg will be blurred anyways :P

call me a n00b or whatever but i normally just use shutter priority or whateveer you canon peoples call it :lol:

on rolling shots who cares what the F stop is? everything in the BG will be a blur anyways so let the camera do part of the work.

Oh haha, that's not n00bish at all, if anything it's pretty smart.
I have just ALWAYS shot in M, only M.
And yeah, haha, your last statement, about the bg being blurred.. I said that in my post :p

also most of the time you are in a chase car and are moving at 40+ mph the lighting changes as you move, you can stop and meter each shot or you can let the camera pick the F stop and just fire away at the shutter button then trash the bad shots and work with the good ones. any small issues you have can be fixed in post. alot of people cant hold a camera perfectly still at 1/40 a second while hanging out the window of a car bouncing down a road. using shutter priority(TV) allows you to fire away and get atleast a few sharp images. if he shoots in full manual and has to keep adjusting things then he may only get 5-6 shots and its possible ALL of them are blurry. id rather have a sharp images that needs some small adjustments than a blurry image that needs no adjustments.


why is this in "pet talk" ROFL

Sorry! also most of the time you are in a chase car and are moving at 40+ mph the lighting changes as you move, I can see the relative lighting changing on the background, but not so much on the car if you've chosen a day & location to minimize lighting changes on the car? and get atleast a few sharp images. Seems to much like shotgunning to me, & there's no guarantee that the "few sharp images" will be with the best background that, hopefully you've scouted beforehand. I'd rather take 1 good shot against the background I've already picked out. Once that's "in the can", then it's time to play around with variations.

To me, it's the difference between "Going to work" & "Playing a game", something that our Pistons only get right part of the time. :D
