Hotshoe mounted viewfinder for fast moving birds?

Try shooting with both eyes open, using the non-viewfinder eye to get a wider view and track the general position and direction of the subject, and you should fine it easier to keep the subject in the frame using your viewfinder eye. So when the subject leaves the frame you see where its gone with the other eye and know which direction to move the camera. Takes a bit of practice but I do this a lot with moving subjects.

They come with a set of rear mounting filters (at least mine did)

Thanks Cuthbert. Yes, I really liked the Zenitar, I bought mine direct from the Ukraine at a very good price but not sure how they compare now. Obviously its more of a UWA on a crop sensor digital body, but a proper fisheye on film. I eventually sold it to fund a DA10-17 for a bit more flexibility.

Here's another with the Zenitar on the P30 shot from the top of a dam in Wales:

Sports Autotesting

Thanks to all for the comments.

This is actually slightly different to autocross Jer, we call that autosolo over here. Autotesting uses a much tighter course with stopping astride lines and reversing involved, so plenty of handbrake turns and reverse flicks (J turns) etc. This one was actually in a city centre car park in Coventry which was part of the councils Motorfest event to promote motorsport in the city. We do run them on grass too in the summer months as Mark Jerling mentioned.

This was the course (of which there were 3 in total all run several times throughout the day). The dotted lines denote reverse direction. You definitely need a certain type of brain to remember the route!



Some more pics:

I can't even begin to figure out what's going on here:lol:

Just sharing some images from yesterday's autotest that I was helping out at. Fo those not familiar with Autotesting it involves driving as fast as possible around a tight and twisty course laid to with lines and cones which have to be negotiated in the correct sequence and direction, without touching anything. The cars are very specialised but some do use road cars. This was a round of the British championship so these are amongst the best in the country. Its an amazing thing to watch, but difficult to capture due to the relatively slow speeds, close proximity and rapid changes in direction. You can obviously just go for the high shutter speed 'frozen in time' approach, but I personally don't think that conveys any sense of the action and prefer to get some motion blur. So I settled on around a 1/60 and concentrated on tracking the driver or particular part of the car. I started with the DA21 but swapped to the DA35 as that was still wide enough to cover the course.

All K3 and DA35 limited

Thanks much, Steve. That 901 was a very early production car; Porsche ran into a trademark issue and simply decided to replace "0" with "1" and the rear-engined 911 continues to thrive.

Jer[/quote]

Another 911 911 fan here, and I love that first shot of the 912 too! But all these shots of early 911's makes me sad that my '70 911T (almost identically looking to that 912) has been sat in storage with no paint on it for several years awaiting attention :( Keep posting them though, it will inspire me to get it finished:)

Yes, it was Peugeot they had the trademark problem with. Despite the name change nearly all the part numbers on the early cars have a 901 prefix.

Here's mine as it was back in '96. I'm only the second owner after it was imported into the UK after spending all its life in (appropriately) in Orange County, CA.

Yes it was an amazing place, but not exactly on my door step. It was a 4 day drive down through France and Spain from the UK.

Thanks both, it was a great event with a nice combination of fun, relaxation, and a dose of stress and panic, and a continental road trip thrown in at each end. :)

Very much grass roots motor sport, but the cars and teams ranged from true amateurs to the full WRC2 spec. Skoda Fabias with full support crew (pictured). Rallying supremo Jimmy McRae (Colin McRae’s father) was also running in an historic Vauxhall Magnum. But the core were well prepared and equipped, but low budget teams like us.

Here's a few more pics. All K3 and DA*50-135, apart from the under bonnet (hood;))pic which was with the Q and 01.



That Bimmer took a very ‘interesting’ line into that corner before getting out of shape on the exit.


He got it all sorted before the right-hander at the bottom of the hill though.

Just sharing some pics from last weekend's rallying activities in Belgium. I was on servicing duties so could only really grab shots when not working on the car. Luckily one of the stages passed close to the service area so I was able to at lease see some of the action. These were all with the K3 and DA*50-135.
