The FAQ pages here are OK but very few of the items linked inside the threads work anymore and are old, so I'm asking some repeat questions again, as well as other reasons.. New Track.
Since COTA ( http://circuitoftheamericas.com ) removed its head from its back-side and is not banning cameras, I have a couple of questions.
1, mainly, is what specific settings do you suggest for a motorsport like this, as a casual photographer who will likely be behind a fence or on a berm? I have been doing a lot of air shows, and while the conditions have not been the best, I am getting good shots considering. PANNING and motorsports will be all-new for me.
My setup will include a 100-400, a 70-200 2.8 V2 and a 28-135 for the closer shots inside the fence, or anywhere I might get closer than the berms for general admission. Most likely a low-light situation is not going to present itself.
2, this is a NEW track, so its hard to tell exactly how close you are going to be as a general ticket holder. However with more updated photos being posted, aerial shots mainly, it appears the 70-200 might be good, the 400 will offer GREAT shots.
It looks like turn 18 and 19 is going to let you get pretty darn close, as well as a couple of other locations, though the best angles are reserved for seated ticket holders.
The good part is, you are free to move-about, and break up the photos a bit with general tickets. Plus, I don't want to use a camera in the grand stands. So much remains to be seen as far as how much freedom to walk around will be available.
Thanks for suggestions, tips and if you simply cant give much info due to a new track, thats understandable. However a quick pointer on settings that have worked for you at a track similar to this would help greatly, in my START of motorspots photos!
