Hey Rob, great pics. Super sharp. What range of shutter speeds and ƒ stop settings do you use for shots like that? (I guess I should just see if there is any meta data attached to those photos) How do you set up your shots? Pre-focus and snap as the car drives into the area in focus?
I really like shooting R/C's, but it is pretty tough! I've got some decent shots. I mostly try to pan the camera to capture some of the speed, so getting really sharp shots like what you have is really difficult.

Hey thanks for the compliments.

My images had the EXIF data stripped when I ran them through Water Mark Factory. But I will post up the EXIF data here in a short bit. Yeah panning can be frustrating at times, but when you hit it right on, it's sweet!

Hey Wheelnut, if you know of a method where I can extract the EXIF data and post them here via text, let me know. I will be happy to do that.

Also here's is my general technique. When shooting offroad jumps, where the car is coming straight towards me. I first pre- focus on a certain plain. The set the lens to manual focus and leave it. Then shutter speed is set high...anywhere from 1/1000 or higher. My F/stop ranges from 4.0 to 8...but that's just a personal preference. So whenever a car hits the plain that I prefocused on, I hit the shutter...burst mode.

Here's some examples of what I m talking about:






Now for shooting cars at speed in a horizontal direction, I use the panning method. My shutter ranges from 1/100 to 1/400 depending on the general speed at a particular location of the track. I like to use Shutter Priority (Tv) and burst mode on the shutter. Here's an example:
