Anybody going to the Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona this weekend? Anybody been there before and have some thoughts to offer? I'm going down with my 20D (sans grip...1 carry on for luggage means my real photo bag stays and I bring my billingham as a "personal item") 70-200 2.8, 17-40 4, 1.4x tc, 2x tc, 50 1.4.

Oh, and I saw in teh FAQ's what shutter speeds to use for panning, but what about if you do want everything totally frozen, how fast a shutter speed would that need?

If you want to freeze everything, ie. make it look like the cars are parked on the track then just use the fastest shutter speed you can get, but don't expect the image you get to look any good.

Seriously, make the effort to use slower shutter speeds and get the panning working, for sure you will get alot of duds but the goods ones will be really good and worth the effort.

I know they'll be no good frozen, but I figure I got 24 hours might as well try it heh.

What I normally do is start out with fairly fast shutter speeds, 500, mybe even a little faster, when I first start shooting, this way I can get into practise and I can also make sure that I have viable shoots of many cars/bikes as I can and then once I have that I start slowing the sutter speed down to get the shots I really want.

Are you going to be there for any of the practise sessions or just the race. With 24 hours plus practise you should have no trouble getting plenty of good shots at slower speeds.

Just the race. I have the 4 day pass tickets, but I won't get down until Friday night.
