On these shots that are 1/60 and less are we using a tripod/ monopod or handheld?

I handhold with the 70-200: First shoot with moving cars need advice.
Some use a monopod with longer lenses.

I shoot all of my pans and motorsports freehand...no tripod or monopod...as much as I tried when I was learning panning, the monopod always got int he way, or restricted my movements.

Solid technique combined with practice for me was better than using support of any kind.

Hi All,

My first post. This is pretty much what I do with my gear, as a hobby. Panning motorsports stuff, has always been Drift Photography at this point. This is one of my latest shots from an event this past weekend.

Shot with 1D IV & 100-400 II handheld (Monopods also always get in my way. Great for birds & wildlife, can't use it at the track though)

If none of the car is sharp it's because you either weren't steady enough with your pan, or the speed of your pan wasn't in sync with the speed of the car. If part of the car is sharp with the rest blurred it's because of parallax shift. Without getting into the physics of it, you are aiming at one specific spot on the car when you are panning, usually by putting your active focus point on that spot and trying to keep it locked there through the pan. Parts of the car that are away from that aiming point exhibit a greater and greater perspective shift the further away from the aiming point they are. The closer you get to the car and the slower your shutter speed the more extreme this becomes.

This first one is taken at 1/10s but at 100mm, so a decent distance to the car. The entire car is more or less sharp.


This shot is at 1/20s but much closer to the cars. The lead car only looks sharp right around the numbers, the further you move away from that point the car become more blurred due to the perspective shift.


Here's another example with the car in close at 1/13s. In this one I was locked in on the front corner of the car and as you move toward the rear of the car things get progressively blurrier. Once you understand what is happening you can use this to draw focus to a specific part of the car (although if it's an open cockpit you pretty much always want the driver's helmet to be sharp).

Thanks for the cliffs notes break down of what is actually going on. Makes sense now, i'll just keep practicing until i can get it spot on under 1/60th, slowly working my way down. Going to a Ferrari Challenge race this weekend.

Mine are hand held - in the case above @400mm but I do use IS whenever possible!

Majority of my trackside work is hand held BUT if I have the 200-400 on I use a monopod with the pro media head which give a lot better results than just a mono pod - I also couldn't get on with the standard mono pod especially for panning.

Took me a few practice days but shooting 8 > 10 hours handholding was becoming very 'difficult' lol.

1/60

Works for me ;-)a
