I am now on my second Canon 7D and I simply am DONE with trying with this camera! I would love to have someone who can share the settings they have to capture a truly sharp, MOVING object.

What I am having is NOT a focus issue. There is NOTHING sharp in the entire frame... NOTHING!!

I do not want to hear that 100% crops are not needed for those of you who never blow anything up larger than the monitor you have or an 8x10. I need the capability to have 100% sharpness edge to edge of my subject. Here are the examples from today at Road Atlanta. MORE JUNK from the SECOND 7D shipped to me.

Maybe I'm just an idiot, but those panning shots look fine to me.

Sorry to hear of your misfortunre! Saying that... I don't see anything wrong with the two horizontal-panning shots at all :o In fact, they look great!

As for the first, sure, it's out of focus, but what little focus there is seems to be on the leading Porsche.

You're panning and using relatively slow speeds...you cannot expect to freeze motion and have no motion blur in the panned object!

In that first shot it looks like you've taken the 100% crop from an area of the shot that is not within the depth of field. The blue car looks very much out of focus whilst the purple care appears to be far more in focus - so that explains why you see softness there I think.

As for the other images I take it that when you say you see softness this is in comparison to the previous camera body that you used? If so firstly I have to ask if you have resized the 7D images to the same image size as those from the previous camera to compare the results.


Tools of the trade: Canon 400D, Canon 7D, Canon 70-200mm f2.8 IS L M2, Sigma 120-300mm f2.8 OS, Canon MPE 65mm f2.8 macro, Sigma 150mm f2.8 macro, Tamron 24-70mm f2.4, Sigma 70mm f2.8 macro, Sigma 8-16mm f4.5-5.6, Raynox DCR 250, loads of teleconverters and a flashy thingy too

The first shot is obviously a DOF issue. Car #2 is beyond the far limit. If you want both cars in focus, you need to stop down the aperture. The panning shots look pretty good.

first shot you cropped out the car that was actually oof.

Second are you using a tripod. 1/100 on 79mm is close..but I'd actually have it higher.

No offense but I'm not convinced the camera is the issue, I'd probably try very basic shot to test your camera.

These look like USER ERROR. The 7D isn't a magic machine.

When I shoot dancers in my studio (who are typically swirling veils and skirts), I'm using 1/200 or 1/250, not 1/80 - and I still get motion blur when they are moving fast - I can only imagine what a car would do.

The panning shots look good, if not better, than what I'd expect. The first simply looks out of focus.
