I disagree with this...the fun and look of a really slow pan is worth the throw aways...1/125 is just too static and quite frankly too easy...for my tastes.

I think what you are shooting is a huge factor when it comes to shutter speed: 1/125 would be quite dull for saloon car racing, but getting consistent results at 1/125 when shooting Superbikes is a completely different kettle of fish!

I'm personally not a fan of the "arty" style: I like to see a sensation of speed in a photo, but I also like to see as much detail on the vehicle as possible. Most of my favourite panning shots have been taken between 1/60 - 1/100 as I find that's the best range for balancing speed with detail: sure there are many differing opinions and preferences on the subject though!

I find bikes in general trickier, but I have done motocross a few times now and usually get fairly consistent results. Superbikes are still the one I always struggle with!

I remember a few years ago I was spectating GT racing at Brands Hatch. I was on one particular (very fast) corner, but was shooting at (and below) 1/100 and managing to get consistently sharp photos. A week or so later and the British Superbike Championship was at Brands and so I started my day at the same corner using the same settings. Now I'm not a confident photographer but, having got some pictures I was pleased with from that spot, I thought I would be successful off the bat with the Superbikes...

...I might as well have been shooting at 1/10: my first few pictures didn't even have a full bike in them and, when I did get the whole bike in frame, it was a blurry mess! :lol: I guess the physical size difference is a factor, but the speed of Superbikes is just astonishing.

I have the same issues at drag racing with bikes - I don't know if it's because they're smaller...or quicker off the line but using the same settings as for cars, I get less keepers...

Oh well, there's always the next meet. It took me about 30 minutes to get my eye in on Saturday as it was the first time I'd used the d500 for Motorsport since September
