K-01 and Action Shots

Some fast action sports shots with the K-01 + DA*50-135 at the local jump contest.
Wished I'd had a dslr, but I have to say it worked pretty dang well when it did work. My keeper rate was higher than I thought it would be.









Shooting sports is usually not my thing but this was pretty fun. This was the junior experts, and they were tearing it up.

Nice shots. That is not the K-01s strong suite by any stretch of the imagination. Did you zone focus in MF?

Thanks, I pre-focused on the jump and used the tracking af.

I found it useful to shoot in 3-4 shot bursts in high continuous shooting mode - which means you must shoot in jpeg. Not everyone's a keeper obviously but it means you don't have to worry so much about timing. Note that once the AF locks for the first shot it doesn't update.
