So it's an endless discussion about the 'right' panning technique. IMO it's not important which shutter speed you're using to make a real good panning - and it's really not important to quote a 12 years old first posting. Panning under 1/60 might be interesting but it also is a fetish which suffers from the sharpness of a picture. So I have seen in this thread many 1/60 which ain't worth to talk about them and also brilliant ones. Let's enjoy the pictures without all this wisecracking.
