As long as there is enough light (at least ev6), the K10D is really great for sports photography!

Nice panning!

What shutter speed did you use? SR on?
And what is you "hit rate" with this type of panning shot?

Nos. 3 and 5 are excellent shots and I know it is NOT easy.

Very good work here. Panning is something I am working on. You seem to have it down very good. 1,3,6 all seem to be right on.

SR was on, 1/30s and 1/45s.
You can see the exif data for each picture on flickr, click on "More properties", here's the link for the first image: Flickr: More detail about Cycling


Hit rate was low: it was the first time (and only for now) I photographed cycling and had no idea about the settings to use (and I didn't have an external flash, which could help from what I red afterwards - now I have the AF-360)... so it took some time but at the end I had some great results (I wanted pictures showing the movement, and for me it means riders who aren't totally sharp - but I know that some (most?) prefer when the riders are sharp and only the background is blurred).

Thanks!
It also was the first time (and only for now) I photographed freestyle skiing... I'm very satisfied with both results (the K10D is my first dslr, and those series were taken in april and may 2007, so only 3-4 months after I really started photography) but I know it can be much better! And that's what motivates me

I really love #3 out of this series ... that's a top shot indeed.
As Dave said ... Magazine worthy.

Only a suggestion and maybe others could correct me or otherwise...

I would shut-off SR - why??? Because you're moving the camera on purpose.
I would also speed-up the shutter, pump it up to at least 125. I think you would get a clearer object and still get the panning effect.

Always remember that the angle of the subject to the camera's focal plane is important. It makes a difference on how fast it fills the frame.

Excellent sports photography on both the biking and skiing. I like how you did capture the action at the right moment wether panning the bikers or getting the skiers at the peak of the jump. I'm sure you had a lot of throw-aways but these are great.

Cool shots! They look as though they are going 100 mph.
