Pentax Action Shots
Posted By: Timtast1c, 06-30-2009, 09:21 AM

My first time intentionally attempting to shoot fast moving subjects. I went to a local annual bicycle race and these were my attempts on my K10d and 50-135.

POST your action shots too if you would like! Im curious to see what people have been able to do for sport/fast action photography

haha thanks! Like many here i guess i found the best way to get a good action shot was to focus before hand and snap as the cyclists made their way by. i guess its the same with cars and other fast moving things as well.

I research alot before becoming a Pentaxian

Nearly all available information and materials says: Forget about action shots if

one decides on a Pentax

I thought I would only do stills

But from the many great action shots I witness here, I think I made the best


Thank you
