Brandon,

I'm very interested in your thoughts on the MkIII after using it for a few months. I really hate to hang up the MkIIN but I want something with better high ISO performance. Oh, you've already got dust on your sensor (see image 5).

This is the first time that I have used the MK3 at the track but I think that the high ISO blows away what that MK2 had.

Yea I noticed the dust too but that dosent really bother me at all, its easy to clone out if needed also in print it won't show up to bad.

I don't know that showing motion is considered artsy. If you have to use flash because your editor wants that, then I get it... other than that. yuck Side note: I looked at your site and you have plenty of very nice panning shots on the dirt track during the day. To me, those just look better. Side side note: have you ever tried panning at a slower shutter speed with rear curtain flash? I think you could get close to balancing out the flash and ambient light (with shutter speed and iso), get b/g movement and keep the car sharp via flash. maybe a win win win?

I've tried 2nd curtain sync and it will always freeze the tires, at least in my experience. I have some examples to post but I don't want to hi-jack Brandon's thread too much. Maybe it's time for a new thread?

I'm still going to disagree that one must not use a flash at night. I'll shoot the consi's this Saturday with and without a flash then put the up the results to compare.


If you can't fix it with a hammer you've got an electrical problem.

ahh yeah, didn't think about the tires getting frozen due to flash... with that in mind, it might look kind of odd having a bg blur but with the tires frozen haha

I took this one off my face book page so the quality isn't that great when I have more time I will go through and find a better example but here is one of my flashed shots. This was shot with my 50d (i think) and one of the large Norman 200b Flash Units at 200 watts per second.

As you can see you still get some wheel blur but you can also tell what kind of tires he's running on the car

Yeah, it does look pretty odd, IMO.

Have you tried shooting at ISO 3200 or even 6400? Your 50D can handle it. The track that I shoot at is quite dark too but I shoot ISO 6400, 1/100, F2.8.

After this weekend I would be willing to bet that my track is one of the WORST lit tracks around! I was using ISO 2500, 1/100 F3.2 and I was way underexposed with tons of noise. I will give it another try though but using a custom WB; it was all over the place last night.
