Eeesh, you walked around at the zoo with that beast. Nice shots. I have not done so yet. I cheat and use my crop sensor 7D MKii with the 70 to 200, much easier. I need to move quick because I always have a 3 and 4 year old with me.

Couple of shots from races over the weekend. This lens was very versatile. I had two bodies with me a 1DX and 7Dii. Between the two I never needed more reach and on the track rarely used the 70 to 200 except for panning shots and 16 to 35 for in the pits.

Done it a few times now and it's certainly a handful to say the least - you def know the next day lol.

Couple of random shots before I go back out racing:

Juvenile starling at 560mm

How about getting silly with a flower macro at 560mm handheld

Will be trying a new set up at Rockingham next weekend which should make using the 1DX / 200-400 combo a lot easier for an 8 > 10 hour trackside day, will let you know how I get on.

Rockingham came and went with mixed results on the kit, BUT - I have just spent 8 hours plus trackside at Silverstone and have found a solution to the weight etc.

Monopod belt pouch (external link) - Don't use your normal belt that hold your trousers up, I went for a wide fabric belt that I wore slightly higher which was a lot more comfortable.

On the head of the monopod I now have the ProMedia Tomahawk head (external link) with the px6 foot (external link) on the lens. very light, over engineered and really smooth action. Mounted straight onto the pod with no ball head, turned the lens collar 45 degrees so it was side mounted and the swivel is now up and down, put a tiny bit of tension on the ball race and it's good to go.

Actually using this set up enabled a full 8 hours of shooting / walking around the circuit with no problems at all, I know it's not the cheapest way BUT it works really well and will no doubt last a lot longer than I will need.

Few of my favourites from Silverstone

Me again huh!

Great weekends racing at Donington Park although Saturday was a true test of stamina - up at 5am to get to circuit for 8am, last race finished just before 8pm - to say I was 'a little tired' may be an understatement lol. Few randoms from across the weekend.

1DX, Canon 200-400 with built in extender.

Hey, I'm curious about that Gimbal attachment on the monopod.

I have a similar set up that uses a Wimberly Sidekick, but I'm guessing the one pictured weighs a lot less!

Hey boss,

Very light at just 1.9lbs full specs are on the ProMediaGear site HERE (external link) main manufactuere is in the States. I managed a full 12 hour trackside shoot with a half hour break for lunch - tiring but manageable.

.DAVID.

PS - quality of workmanship is outstanding - as you would expect for the money

Thanks David, I'll check it out. I've got some ProMediaGear bits and pieces in use, including an L bracket, indeed good stuff.

One thing I did notice - I shot the majority of Saturday with IS /3 and most of Sunday with IS turned off, keeper rate seems to better with it off, even when panning at 1/80. Battery lasted for 1911 shots with 30% left as well.

Few grabs from Silverstone last Saturday.

#1 1/250, f/7.1, iso 100, 400mm 57 car grid - first corner and . . . . 57 made it through, very impressed

#2 1/60, f/14, iso 100, 200mm yep, a 928

And of course there was the unscheduled (to us anyway) flyby of the stunning Vulcan - didn't have chance to change any settings, she was there in my peripheral vision and then she was gone

#4 1/320, f/7.1, iso 100, 560mm

And a few from BSB at Brands Hatch on Saturday morning, gotta love the full GP circuit, so many more photo opportunities that most people miss because they would rather be in the packed indy area - never did understand that.

1DX, ef 200-400. Spectator side today so through / over and around the catch fencing

#1 1/1000, f/5.6, iso 2500, 560mm Think the extender may have been a bit much here

IMAGE: http://www.davidstallardphotography.com/Petrol-Head/Motorcycles/BSB-Brands-Hatch-17-10-15/i-76Fv6fc/0/L/BSB%20Brands%20Hatch%2017-10-15%20365-L.jpg

#2 1/800, f/4, iso 640, 400mm raining gravel

#3 1/500, f/6.3, iso 1600, 560mm the chase is on

IMAGE: http://www.davidstallardphotography.com/Petrol-Head/Motorcycles/BSB-Brands-Hatch-17-10-15/i-cR4N26b/0/L/BSB%20Brands%20Hatch%2017-10-15%20231-L.jpg

#4 1/250, f/4, iso 320, 200mm with two races still to go - the new champion is. . .

#5 1/500, f/4, iso 500, 250mm Mmmmmm now where do I look for a new car. . . . .

Eventually someone else will start posting in here as well (wont they???)

I know it's an old cliche of a shot but saw the angle of the plane and had to go for the quick grab

There are entire groups and clubs of people that are dedicated to getting just the sort of 'cliche" shot you posted,
