Yes, they do.

Izod is the IndyCar series' title sponsor.external link As happens with title sponsors in most racing series, Izod gets a mandatory sticker on every car. There's nothing new or unusual or unique about this practice.

Just curious DC Fan, I've noticed all your pics (or the ones I've checked) are taken with a Rebel, and they're sensational - showing the user is more important than the equipment.

Judging by your pics you're an experienced shooter and have been doing it a for a while.

From what I hear the shutter mechanism on cameras have a certain number of shots before they fail - 10,000 shots or whatever.

Do you keep buying Rebels or have you not had a shutter mechanism go?

Shutter assemblies have gotten more durable with each generation of camera.

My first Canon DSLR, a D30 (the 2000-2001 model that was also the first DSLR manufactured by Canon), had the shutter mechanism fail three times. Fortunately, the first two were covered by an extended warranty. The D30's shutter failures were odd; the flash stopped discharging, but the camera would still take pictures. Canon replaced the D30's shutter mechanism with the assembly from the second-generation D60, but it still was fragile under heavy use.

After the D30 went down for the third time, the most affordable Canon DSLR available was the original Digital Rebel, the 300D. Both of the Digital Rebels I bought had shutter failures: one when a shutter blade broke, the other when the spring failed on the unusual hinged shutter cover. Those problems arose even though the 300D was limited to four continuous frames in a burst, which should have limited stress on the shutter mechanism.

Then I moved to a pair of XTi's, which have had no shutter problems. However, the shutter buttons on both cameras needed to be repaired. The XTi's remain in use as bad-weather backups after four years in service.

The current first-string camera is a T2i. It's handled tens of thousands of exposures over the last 11 months with no hints of trouble.

The Digital Rebel series has offered good performance at a relatively low price. With Canon's history of releasing new models with upgraded features, it should be time to buy a replacement for the T2i in 2013-2015.

nice crisp shots, apart from #2, it's a bit soft. Would like to see some cropped in a bit closer, as the foreground fence is distracting.

Love the sparks....

now that we are on the subject of your gear, what lens did you use? Are you in the middle of the track or are you in the stands?

All images came from a Canon T2i. Images 1, 2, 5 and 6 used a Sigma 150-500mm OS lens. Images 3 and 4 used a Canon 70-300mm IS lens. Image 1 was taken at 1/200, and the rest at 1/160. The slowest cars at that location are traveling around 200 miles per hour.

The images were taken from a ground-level general admission location, though a metal-weave fence.

A hint of the fence's impact on a static image. Working close to the fence and using a slow shutter speed and long focal length minimized the fence.
