Tom, images are not stored on this web site, you must store them on your own site, or use flickr, smugmug, or one of the many others.  Then link the url to your post.

I'm in love.  I'll take two.

I d better not tell you the current price ... anyway have a look at my flickr account there is a little more background info on this car ...

Nice writeup.  Looks like replicas go for the paltry sum of $133k :D  Just the price of a brand new panamera turbo S . .

Still pretty sexy. That 507 bimmer is pretty slick too.  My taste for old European cars does not match up with my taste for martinis and spaghetti . . . I doubt I'd fit in most with the top up.  :-\

Haha I actually have no idea who it is, this is just one of the ones that turned out!!! Turns out crappy kit lenses aren't so hot at continuous autofocus...

That's Contador and I'm pretty sure the guy behind him is Lance. This one just isn't quiiiite in focus and there's that blurry guy in front, so I thought it wasn't worth posting..

I would LOVE to have a 70-200 to shoot cycling... Haven't been following the tour as much this year.

justsomedude I have a question. How much does the 7D AF help you in capturing these shots(supposed you have a decent panning technique)?
I'm asking because with my 400d it is quite hard to get lots of in focus shots.. I usually put focus to manual and wait for the bike to come, else I may lose the shot..

Askiskev,

Unfortunately, I don't think there is a straightforward answer to your question.  But if I had to answer yes or no, I'd say "no"...  the 7D's AF alone is not as big a factor as some people might think for these types of shots.  However, there are other aspects of the 7D that do provide a little advantage over other camera bodies (I'll get to that later).

Don't get me wrong, the 7D AIservo AF is a help, but only a small factor in the grand scheme of shooting this kind of shot at 1/160th.  The problem is at these slow shutter speeds (1/160th is "slow" for a racing motorcycle), the rider is moving and his fairings are vibrating/shaking violently due to wind/engine&road vibrations - so getting the entire bike/rider to be crisp is difficult (and sometimes just takes luck).  I've tried shooting as low as 1/125 and 1/100, but my keeper rate becomes atrocious.  1/160th is about as slow as I can go (in corners) while getting a somewhat decent keeper rate, and getting the entire bike to be sharp.  I have to bump the shutter speed up on main straights as the bike speeds are much higher.

All things considered, I'd say panning technique is priority #1 for shooting any type of shot like this, and always will be.  Even when my focus is spot on, most of my throw-aways are due to camera shake (translation: operator error).  :)  After panning technique, I think optics are the #2 consideration for panning shots, and they play a bigger role than camera body or AF type.  Shooting with a fast lens with image stabilization (in a panning mode) can significantly increase keeper rates.  Also, keep in mind that teleconverters -  while giving you more reach - will actually compromise image quality.  You also lose two stops of light with most TCs. 

I shoot with a 70-200mm and use a 1.4x TC if I really have to.  In a perfect world (where money grew on trees), I'd be shooting 300mm or 400mm f/2.8L IS lenses, like the two just featured on the home page (http://www.canonrumors.com/2011/08/ef-300-f2-8l-is-ii-shipping-to-selected-dealers/).  Unfortunately, I don't have that kinda cash.  :P

Lastly, there is definitely a point where camera body comes into play, but I don't think the AF processing is necessarily the key benefit.  In my mind, the advantage to the 7D is the much larger pentaprism, which is actually larger than the 5D MKII's pentaprism (see pentaprism info in this review (http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/E7D/E7DA.HTM)).  While processing certainly helps for tracking, it's of my opinion that this large pentaprism is a huge help to the 7D's AF system.  Either way, I'd put the AF system as the lowest priority with respect to obtaining higher keeper rates for motorsports photography (that is, in a 400d to 7D comparison... obviously AF is a factor if we're comparing a 7D to a powershot!). 

Remember, people have been taking these kinds of photos for years - long before digital AF came about... and somehow they were able to get tack sharp shots.  ;)  If you are able to get good crisp shots with pre-setting focus at a fixed distance, that means you're really dialing your panning technique down.  Ultimately, if you upgrade to a higher-end camera, you'll be well ahead of the curve for handling the AF features that come with it.

I hope this helps!

I'm asking because with my 400d it is quite hard to get lots of in focus shots.. I usually put focus to manual and wait for the bike to come, else I may lose the shot..

Although the AF helps its more technique and knowing what shutter speed to use in comparison to the speed of the vehicle. Also alot is down to panning technique. My kit is fairly old-school in terms of technology, a 40D and a non IS 70-200mm F2.8 and a 2x extender. In my opinion, yes its nice to have the better kit but nailing the technique is more important, doesn't matter what kit you have your pics will still come out badly if the technique isnt great. The best way is trial and error there is no easy way of calculating because of available light. I generally use the AV mode, use a higher f stop to increase depth of field and decrease the shutter speed, anywhere between F5.6 and F11 works well for me, anything less than F5.6 and you will find that the vehicle will have a small plane of focus, which can be nice for some shots but more depth of field is better for the overall effect. But if the light is pretty consistent check your exposure and get it into manual and set the values to get a perfect exposure then you can worry about the technique.

In terms of your focus point, you can pre focus on a part of the road, then set the camera to burst, follow the vehicle from an apex or where ever you are, and when you get to your pre focused point shoot a few frames, generaly shoot the first one about a metre before the point. It is a tried and tested technique but gets a bit of getting used to. Especially shooting exactly where you pre focused, best thing to do is find a mark on the road like a tyre mark so you know exactly where to shoot the frames. It is paramount to follow the car and pan or you will find the pic is very flat without any movement or with your pre-defined settings the car will be blurred but not in an aesthetic panned way, more just a blurred image. The problem is any camera will struggle to continually focus but AI servo usually does a good job, if that doesn't work for you then try the pre focusing, the vehicles move so fast that manual focus while panning can be very difficult if not impossible.

The 400d isnt really geared up to this type of photography, but instead of fighting against it use its flaws to your advantage, work around them. With the burst mode shoot the 4fps at your pre defined point, the middle image will be pin sharp. Usually 3-5 frames is a good amount to work with, even pros use this technique to ensure they have a perfect image. Another piece of advice is buy a battery grip, it will make the camera a lot more balanced hand held with a big lens. Otherwise buy yourself a monopod, although I find that they are a bit cumbersome... and annoying because it is another factor to mess around with.

The more planted you are the more likely you are to keep a steady pan. Also how is your stance and how you hold the camera? a steady strong stance with a strong grip also helps, you want to use your left arm like a triangle pressed into your chest then by holding the lens barrel and pressing the camera up toward your face you create a steady posture, then use your upper body to pan rather than your hands, almost like using a monopod but more flexible. This dramatically aids your images. Otherwise you will find that your images look sharp on the camera then get them home and at 100% they are slightly out this technique helps to reduce this, although to give yourself a little bit of leeway bring your aperture up one step will still create a pleasing blur and a sharp shot, if not exactly what you want you can also add a little more in PS. Then once your technique starts to improve you can be more experimental with your panning technique and maybe think about upgrading your camera. Its a good tool to learn with because of the flaws then once you get hold of a quicker camera you will find the technique you have learned pay massive dividend. I did exactly the same started with a 350d and a crappy 24-300mm sigma lens and eventually decided it was the right time to get some better kit.

Hope this helps

As Tom and the others have said: panning is mostly practice and experimentation with settings: loads of it. An additional aspect to be aware of, is on what level are you, with respect to the subject. If you are above the plane of the subject, then your pan will not be horizontal: you may need to pan at an angle, and you may need to rotate the camera as you pan. Work on keeping your selected focus point on the same point on your subject, and be aware of the subject in the frame: positioning, rotation etc.

I started out about 1 keeper every 10 frames and am now down to about 1 in 3.

Sharing some successes:

There's a place for posting portfolios, where it is around here I don't know cause I haven't looked for it. I have this problem for a couple reasons. The first is the simple netiquette of being "link slapped," it's sort of like saying "here look at this thing I can't bother to explain even a little but you should look at it anyway" and the second is the times that I have clicked a photographer's portfolio is I'm usually immensely annoyed by a horrible site full of flash, terrible UI and a bunch of other Web site rules I am the arbitrar of. I don't mean to come across as a jerk or militant about trivial things though both are at least partially true. Ultimately they're both excellent images and I'm glad you posted them. :)

I took this at a local cemetery, This is for a photo competition, the subject was Automotive & ominous.  5 exposure HDR.  And what caught my eye, was the leading lines of the road, that bring you into the subject.

Nice pic! that has to be one of the best HDR car photo's i've seen, EVER. Usually HDR pics of cars make me want to be sick or at least have a siezure, but that is clean. what did you use to process it?

I used photshop CS 5, and just played with the setting until I got that clean look.  Personally I usually go to the "Overcooked HDR" look for cars, but for this shot, i found the subtle HDR to be far more pleasing.

And thank you for the compliment.

You mean to tell me that you don't like images that look like cartoons? What's wrong with you? Taking an all-around mediocre image, going all HDR crazy, and getting e-high-fives from your online cohorts is a rite of passage for any novice photog! It ranks right up there with shooting black and white images of your obese cat.

I think that when it comes to cars, going overboard on HDR, has it's time and place.  And it's so easy to want to push the photo to it's limits. 

(http://www.poirier-arts.com/Other/My-Smug-Mug/i-SKVKLC7/0/M/IMG0205-Edit-M.jpg)

Here a pseudo HDR i did several years back.  Printed this photo looks good, but in the last few years i would never make the mistakes I did.

1.) Tonemapped not true HDR
2.) Went to the extremes on every slider possible (all or nothing)
3.) Broke my first rule of automotive photography "GET THE WHOLE CAR!!" unless your focusing on one single part of the car.
4.) Halos in the background

But what i have learned is you need to make mistake, and recognize what mistakes you made, to make the next photo look even better.

ole, sweet shot ... the blue snow is a bit distracting; it looks like you could isolate and desaturate the blues pretty easily which would conflict less with the colors throughout the rest of the image.  awesome action there, though

Personally, I despise any HDR that looks overtly HDR. If I submitted a cartoonish HDR image to any of my clients, they'd call me back asking "WTF is that $hit?" and that would be the last time they ever hired me for an assignment. I couldn't blame them, either.  If I were in their shoes, I'd do the exact same thing.

An interesting thread. Not all HDR,s have to look unreal , careful use of different exposures and layers as opposed to default HDR rendering can look goog. Although I'm biased.

Thanks for the kind words. I'm just trying to keep up with those that are better than me  :)

Like you said, there's a lot more involved with automotive photography than meets the eye, but that can be said for every form of photography. It's just a matter of learning the specifics of each discipline, and adapting accordingly. For instance, a good friend of mine used to shoot super high end product/catalog work for all the big Chicago ad agencies. After getting laid off, he decided to transition to automotive work. There were some fundamental mistakes in his early work, but after just a few gigs, he started producing some of the best damn work in the industry. Ultimately, an artist is an artist.

I'd like to think I can hang with him on the automotive stuff, but he absolutely whips my sorry butt when it comes to portraits and landscapes. Over the years, I've developed a deep respect for photographers that can excel in multiples fields within the photographic world. I'm in awe of those than can shoot fashion, sports, landscapes, and portraits at a very high caliber, not just one specific specialty.

Awesome work, Adrian! I'm getting hungry just looking at the food shots, and am quite envious that you got to shoot a McLaren.

Not all HDR,s have to look unreal , careful use of different exposures and layers as opposed to default HDR rendering can look goog.

I agree 100%. IMHO, layering in multiple exposures to extend the dynamic range of an image is a must in order to bridge the gap between what the camera sees and what the human eye sees. In other words, it should look so natural that people don't even know that it's HDR.

This isn't a particularly good image, but exposing for a dark car like this will often blow out the sky entirely. Furthermore, since the top of the quarter panels are white, they were blown out as well. Obviously, this isn't how my eye captured the image when looking through the viewfinder.

(http://i1132.photobucket.com/albums/m567/BBNotch/Stuff/01a.jpg)

An easy fix was to layer in a second exposure that was properly exposed for the sky. An ND grad filter may have been used to enhance the effect, but I don't remember, as this shot was take five years ago.

(http://i1132.photobucket.com/albums/m567/BBNotch/Stuff/01.jpg)

This is far more representative of what the scene actually looked like. Technically, it's HDR, but it was done to make the image appear more natural, not like a cartoon. IMHO, overly processed HDR is a pathetic gimmick that's often used as a substitute for basic photographic skills, and it needs to go away  :) Some people can pull it off, but they are the exception to the rule.

No pro access so i have to use my head to get a decent shot.
 First shot is British Superbike champion Tommy hill in the rain drifting it.
Second shot is Ben Wilson, top 600 rider. I had to lie in mud, on my back, in the rain, poke the lens under a fence to get this.
Third one was me lieing on my back at a stunt show.

Looks great, my Australian e-friend ;D It sure beats my first rig shot by a large margin!

Based on the lack of distortion, I see that you're able to get the camera a good distance from the car. Nice work!

V8,
I'm a big muscle car fan, so I adore the vehicles you have captured - and even better is the presentation you have created.  Very captivating.  Some of the best I have seen, and I have read a lot of car mags.... Well done!

When I finish restoring my 68 camaro, I'll have to ask you for some tips on shooting it.  8)

I'm very jealous! I've been dreaming of buying a '69 Camaro, but they're just too expensive. Please post some pics of your car when you're done. The black car I posted makes close to 1,000 hp, has all the modern amenities, and is very street worthy. What a package.

Don't usually post things on this site, but a few weeks ago I got caught up in the Route 66 Festival they have here every year. Very fun. I'm no car photographer, so these are more interpretations than documentation.

Posted some shots on my website: http://www.unfocusedmg.com/cars.html (http://www.unfocusedmg.com/cars.html)

How about a Cadillac to mix things up a bit? This is a fun client to shoot for since he gives photographers more "creative interpretation" than other clients. As such, I got to experiment with much more moody lighting than I usually do. It just so happens that I wasn't pleased with the results from the last assignment I shot for this client, so I put a little extra effort into this one :)

Here is a recent shot I like: it's not exactly a car shot per se, but a "people" shot of a person driving a car - a little different emphasis, mostly in what appears sharpest and most in focus. However, I still like the car in it and the whole feel of the shot. It looks even better, the bigger you see it; it's on my website slightly larger, along with another nice static shot of the same subject. The car is an old Morgan, either a '49 or early 1950's model - I forget which. Enjoy.

Very nice shots - what car is it BTW ?
BR,
Thomas

It's a 1955 Chevy Nomad. With old cars like this, it's amazing how big they are on the outside and how small they are on the inside. You'd be lucky to get four fat Americans in an old wagon like this these days :) People must have been much skinnier in 1955.

Took this hanging out the window of a racing car low to the ground with 150km/h. The raindrops were horribly painful...
Very interesting!

Here is a recent shot I like..
Excellent shot David!!

Following a suggestion to check out this area of CR.  Very nice shots!

Thought I'd try my hand at photographing cars.  Just wondering what what be a good combination to photograph an outdoor classic car show coming up next weekend.  The widest lens I have for a crop-body is the EF-S 17-55 f2.8 and for FF: 24-105 f4.   There may be some open-house events where cars will be on display inside custom auto shops but this will be my first time attending this event, I'm not really sure.  If the event goes until say 8 pm in the evening, then the 17-55 might be the best way to go.

Suggestions and recommendations welcome   ;D

So has any of you guys been to Wolfsburg?
For those who don not know, it's the hometown of Volkswagen.
They have a hugh area called Autostadt where every car brand they own has a own area.
Well, this is a fully mirrored/chromed Bugatti Veyron. It's fully functional but forbidden to drive on publice roads because of reflections that might cause irritations.

Well most of mine were taken with an old 40D and a 17-55mm, was so sharp on that body. Some taken with the 7D and 17-55mm and others taken with my 5DMKIII and a 24-105mm.

I think you have the bases covered. I would take a prime for low light large DOF, maybe a macro for details and if you get chance a 70-200mm F2.8 is nice to compress perspective with things around going on, then blur the background out to reduce distraction. But can be a pain if there are a lot of people around. I kept the 17-55mm when I shot crop and 24-105mm on FF. Ive been shooting cars for years commercially and neither have let me down. Now I keep the 24-105mm on my FF body and 70-200mm on the Crop body and carry two so I dont need to change lenses.

One last thing to take is a flash with a diffuser, just to fill. Can be very useful and if done correctly no-one would ever know.

You have to be careful. few tips - 17mm close up will distort the car, Better off using 35mm and above to keep distortion at bay. Although can look good, depends what your after.

I would suggest get low, down to the cars hight don't shoot down. Otherwise the car wont look natural and its tell tale signs of amateurish photography. I am always lying on the floor or on one knee when I shoot cars.

Use a tele to compress the perspective bring the background closer.

Thanks for the great tips and sharing your photos Tom.  I tried some of your suggestions out at an Audi dealer this evening.  I haven't had a chance to download or do any processing.  I can see where a Macro lens would be quite handy - not to mention a knee pad   ;D

Post by: tntwit on May 16, 2013, 07:52:10 PM
I always find it difficult to 'See' the shot when it comes to the close up detail shots of cars and bikes.

I look at some of the great shots on here of all these cars and bikes and say to myself "What a great shot; I don't think I would have ever 'seen' that.

Anyways, here is a recent attempt.

Nothing special.  My mother-in-law is selling this bike and I decided to be a little creative with it.  I recently bought the 50 1.8 so I could learn to shoot with a shallow depth of field, which I tried to employ here.

I would appreciate any feedback to improve the results. 

I'll start with my own critique.

I have a bunch of reflections in the shots - me, the neighbor's house, trees, etc.  Is this something where you pull out a diffuser, etc to block the reflection - or pick a different location?

I'm guessing reflectors would enhance some lighting.

I'm not thrilled with the bokeh on this lens, but then it's a cheap lens so I wasn't expecting the world.

I'm wondering if I am picking the best point of focus in the shots and the best perspective, in terms of making it interesting.  I know there is no right or wrong answers in the world of creative, but there are maybe best practices.

Having a shallow depth of field for OOF is something I never had before, and I really like playing around with it.  For these types of shots I think it makes them much more interesting.

To a scotsman this is an exciting car: No road tax.  Ever.  Routinely getting 100+mpg on long motorway journeys.

Dust kicked up with sun behind. She's only doing about 10mph.  Being a frugal canny scot I've never had her above 56mph!

Canon 7D, Canon 70-200 f2.8L.

A couple from the British Touring Car Championship finale at the weekend. First time shooting cars with my 7D and 70-200. The ability to focus and follow a car is such a step up from my old camera. First image is from saturday, second from Sunday where the weather was awful all day, really tested my knowledge of set up and panning to keep the ISO below 1000. C&C  very welcome. Would like to improve my work!  :)

Love your work V8.  Good to see you got a 76 XC Falcon over there.  There are a lot of the 71 Torino styling cues in that coupe as the 1972 XA version was styled around the same time in the same studio.
Title: Re: Cars cars cars (and some bikes)
Post by: V8Beast on January 11, 2014, 10:29:26 PM
Great eye, Roo. It is indeed a '76. For me it was quite unusual seeing a musclecar like the Falcon with right-hand drive. I'm quite envious of all the great cars the Aussies built in the '70s. Just about every old-school car built after 1972 in America is crap. Aussies kept on building badass cars like the Falcon.

More than any other car I've ever shot, this Falcon attracted lots of confused and intrigued onlookers. During the two hours spent on the exterior photos, at least half a dozen cars pulled up, trying to guess what kind of car it was. No one got it right :)

They mustn't have watched Mad Max (The Road Warrior) lol.  1976 was  when these cars turned to crap engine wise.  Local emission controls in the form of EGR etc came into effect robbing them of power and increasing consumption.  Ford did a better job of managing it than Holden did though.  I've attached a pic of an even rarer version of the coupe - a Ford Landau.  It was a luxury version and only 1300 or so of these were ever made.  The front was the same as the local LTD with a different side window opening and a strip tail light similar to the 71 Torino. 

You should get out here sometime as some of the cars are very different, especially the old US ones.  In the 30s and 40s local body builders made some unique variations such as the sloper .  In the 50s Ford and GM were assembling cars from kits sourced from Canada which also led to some unique styles such as the 58 'Star model' Customline and the 62 'Tank' Fairlane.

Last weekend was a long weekend for Australia Day and there is a regular free display of older cars in Melbourne as well as the annual hot rod show.

I would love to visit Australia sometime, and not just for the cars :) The enthusiasm surrounding the car scene out there reminds me of America in the '60s.

Here's some other Aussie made sports cars.
These are Bolwells dating from the late 60's and early 70's.
The older one (the orange one) is powered by a Holden 6 cylinder engine, and the later ones by Ford V8's, both the 302 and 351.

The boat tail car looks like a 1935 Auburn 851 Speedster. A lot of replicas have been made of these cars since that time.

Very very nice indeed, however the tail lights told me it was a scale model being photographed.

Still I was impressed enough by the general quality of the model to google 'Moss mercedes 300 slr' and found the exact same CMC scale model.

Dude! That seductive design! Here in Brazil we call a certain part of the body of the woman "capô de Fusca" something like "hood Beetle". See the photo below, if it looks like something that other countries call it camel toe.

Motorclassica was on here last weekend.  It's a combined Concours D'Elegance, auction, mortoshow and club event so it has something for everyone.  This year's event celebrated 100 years of Maserati, 50 years of the Mustang and 50 years since Sir Donald Campbell broke the land speed record at Lake Eyre.

Thanks Graham!  They are impressive units.  Flxible were one of the first to start using a rear engine design in the 30s, although this style was made from 1946-67.  Over here they ran mainly on the interstate/tourist coach services as they were air conditioned as well.

Hi Roo.
Thanks for the added info. Aircon too, but then I guess out there it's pretty much essential once you know it exists! How did we manage before!

Thanks, I appreciate it. Yes, at least by my standards the shot is very sharp. It was a pretty difficult panning shot to pull off as the Jet Car was moving at a top speed ~300mph. I must have shot 20 frames in a burst and only one was really sharp. I am sure better panning technique and perhaps the better IS of the 100-400 II would have  produced a few more keepers.

I'll be buying a black one, gonna go for the V8 GT rather than the 2.4 Ecoboost or the V6, probably not gonna happen until 2016 sometime, but it's a high priority in the family  8)

The interior is just as well done as the exterior.. as you would expect from a group of car company designers and engineers working in their spare time  :D  Here's a link to a recent article a local magazine did on it.

6 litre V8 in that Efijy, what's not too like!!
I love the Harley fat boy style solid wheels, it really sets it off with the rest of the retro styling!!
Excellent pictures Roo :)

Not really the right place but thought you guys might enjoy.

A few of my favourites from a recent eurotrip. 13 days, 6 countries, 3000 miles, 3500 pics.

We took the ferry from Port of Tyne, Northumbria UK to Amsterdam drove through Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Italy. We went to the museum and factory tours (where we could) of BMW, Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini and Pagani.

Then made our way back through Austria, Switzerland, Germany Netherlands and back to Blighty.

Enjoy. I will make a dedicated thread of images with the accompanying editorial which will be appearing in the British version of Porsche post.

I certainly do! Definitely a german car guy through and through.

Saying that I saw some of my all time favourites - Zonda F, Ferrari F40, Porsche 959, lamborghini Miura, BMW M1 the list goes on! Really was amazing! But I'm quite happy with the Red 911 in the pics.

Heres a pic of me and my dad just before we set off.

(https://scontent-lhr3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xta1/v/t1.0-9/11401150_853742341371899_435202357800423542_n.jpg?oh=5911d6e1e4d8f3ef3c94206771a6d364&oe=56129B4C)

Although the new 911 Targa GTS is a thing of beauty and is most certainly on my list. Fell in love with the silver Targa on our journey and the new targa is beautiful.

So many people had love for the car on the journey people would stop, wave, watch etc when we got to the lamborghini factory and drove through the main gates all 3 cars were surrounded by tourists people wanting pics wondering where we were from etc was an experience I certainly won't forget.

As for the Ferrari museum the main one where the factory is… its very touristy and wasn't really very impressive. The Enzo Ferrari Museum was incredible much more out of the way and quite hard to find but was apart of Enzo Ferraris estate and was beautiful much more up my street.

I love the way it brings out the colours in the headlight lenses, I saw a photo project where someone gathered a load of plastic rulers and protractors, added a CIRC/POL then took the image, the colours the filter reveals are amazing, just like the headlights on your truck  :)

Thanks!

I took over 5000 so plenty to work through ;D

Such an incredible event biggest classic motor event in the world. over 10000 cars displayed, over 100 races, a lot of cars raced are worth over a million with a few other rare cars worth over 10 and some priceless and they race them like they stole them. Magic.

Hi Tom.
Great series of shots.
5000 images, I did 3000 last year at the Bournemouth air festival, never again, still working through them, it's on again later this month.  ::)
We do the Goodwood Revival, same sort of attitude there, most cars have two drivers with a swap mid race, one the owner, one a racing driver or celebrity, they both drive it like its stolen, again cars worth north of a million are not rare. Definitely an event to attend at least once.

Cheers, Graham.

Thanks!

Ye it is a bit of a pain but I was there for 3 days so I don't think thats too bad. Lots of action lots of cars.

I was meaning the more rare cars like the Ferrari 250GT SWB breadvan. Only one ever made and it won the first Stuart Graham Award which was given for most admirable competing car.

Estimated value being £10 million.

'The striking three-litre V12 scarlet Ferrari 250 GT SWB Breadvan is a one-off Ferrari made in 1962 from a 1961, chassis number 2819 GT. It was commissioned by Count Giovanni Volpi in 1962, when Enzo Ferrari refused to sell the immensely rich Venetian one of his new 250 GTOs, Volpi simply hired renowned engineer Giotto Bizzarrini to upgrade a Ferrari 250 GT SWB into a GTO beater – the result was the distinctive Breadvan, so known due to its extended rear roofline and shooting-break appearance. The re-bodied Ferrari made its debut at the 1962 Le Mans 24 Hours, outpacing all of Enzo’s GTOs before being sidelined by a driveshaft failure. Despite being immensely valuable, thanks to the enthusiasm of its current owner, it continues to regularly compete in major historic events such as the Silverstone Classic.'

I used to do that. I've since stuck to 'never again'! I found I would miss stuff by hiding behind the camera all the time and grow to resent going through thousands of images. I try to keep it to 500-100 for an event now (can be tough when you let loose hi speed burst!), I enjoy watching the event more and still get plenty of shots I'm happy with.

Hoped to do Bournemouth and Goodwood myself this year, alas family stuff is likely to get in the way for yet another year  :(

Ye well it's good to do that if your there for personal reasons and paid for a ticket. First couple of years was like that for me and I was showing my car so doing both was a bit of an ask.

But the last two years I've been there on assignment shooting for publication and had a press pass so can't really limit myself. More I have the easier it is to please the editor.  :)

Goodwood is on the editorial list for next year hope to get there!

Fair point! In that situation, more really is more! I'm sure if I did manage to get a media pass one day I'd be buying a few extra cards and then shooting an awful lot more  :)

Another great shot there of the Courage by the way.

Cheers guys il drop them in as I get them edited.

Proof you can still get good shots with old tech. My 5DMKIII gave up half way through the day as the rain was so heavy (as you can see from the pic), although I had a rain cover on it 8 hours in torrential rain is just too much for it. The buttons got a bit waterlogged and wouldn't control the camera. So got my old 40D out as I always carry it incase of a problem. Then a couple of hours later same thing happened to the 40D...

Had no problem wrapped them in a towel and let them dry good as new the next morning. going to buy myself a 7DMKII now I think, would like a 1DX but they are a bit overkill atm.

Cheers, Graham.

I live in Puerto Rico, and the photos are from a local track in Ponce, the 2nd largest city.  Track rules are pretty lenient and in the first photo I am standing on a 3 foot high wall on the inside of a 180 degree corner.  I am probably 4' away from the car shooting with a 12-24 on a 7DII.  My side of the wall is filled with dirt so I can't stand behind it.

I'm divorced, so I have little or no concern for my personal safety.  At one point a race official came over and told me that the hay bales I was standing behind would not stop a skidding car.  They were meant to cushion the cycle riders who might go in head first.  I know, but the photos are cool, I said...

Anyway, glad you like them.

Please pardon the multiple posts, but I have a dumb technical question to ask. I originally uploaded these images onto my Photobucket site, but after linking them to Canon Rumors, they appeared way too wide. I've never had this issue before. What am I doing wrong?

As an alternative, I attached the images directly into the post, but now the color temperature and saturation is off. What gives?

With that out of the way, we now return to more Corvettes ;D

V8Beast, you tease us Sir!!!
That Silver C3 (?) engine bay is automotive pornography :o, incredible example!!  Even though that C7 is a 1200bhp variant, I’d still have the Silver one!!
I love the rolling chassis too, I have one like that of the McLaren MP-12C (I’ll find them and post later) they loved telling people that the word “Mclaren” was etched instead of being embossed to save a further 2.3 grams!!!
Your photo’s are amazing, I loved every single one of them. :)

Great images as usual V8.  I love the rolling chassis shots - you've done them great credit for the effort they put into attention to detail.  What body are they clothing it in?

I moved house recently and I met my new neighbour on the weekend.  It turns out he has a nicely restored white '65 289 powered Mustang and a purple 32 coupe running an 8 stack injected 302.  So I might have some new subjects to shoot :)

The chassis is for a 1957 Chevy. The shop I shot this for makes full chassis like this for all kinds of cars. They're putting one together right now for an old Alfa Romeo.

It's always nice to have neighbors with cool cars. I noticed a nice '68 Charger parked outside down the street form me. I might have to pay the owner a visit.

I’ll follow up with a couple from the Supercar Show that happened a few weeks later, which was incredible, every rare marque I could have hoped for and more!!  Only problem there was that the entire car park had a red carpet which caused colour spill on to some of the cars.

Hi V8, your spot on, a CF Monocoque cabin with aluminium and titanium chassis parts.  The Middle East launch was held in the Armani hotel, so it was quite a swanky affair, I also managed to blag my way in to the P1 launch at the Habtoor Grand hotel ballroom, it was even better!!  I’m quite bias as I’m an avid McLaren F1 team fan (I don’t follow drivers) so I love/prefer the McLaren road cars over the usual Ferraris and the like.

I got the chance to work on the Fast and Furious 7 in Abu Dhabi and I drove the MP4-12C back to its resting place, loved it!!  The steering wheel felt so precise it was scary, that on top of the acceleration would be real fun on a track, unfortunately I only drove it round the Emirates Palace.  I managed to drive quite a few exotics that day, I started up and drove/re-parked a Veyron, a McLaren SLR 722 and I was the precision driver in the yellow Ferrari 458 in the film, the scene where the cars all come in to park one after each other.  The weekend before I drove vehicle number 2 (black Suburban) in the scene with Kurt Russell.  No cameras allowed as you would expect, but I think there are a couple of iPhone snaps somewhere!!

'The striking three-litre V12 scarlet Ferrari 250 GT SWB Breadvan is a one-off Ferrari made in 1962 from a 1961, chassis number 2819 GT. It was commissioned by Count Giovanni Volpi in 1962, when Enzo Ferrari refused to sell the immensely rich Venetian one of his new 250 GTOs, Volpi simply hired renowned engineer Giotto Bizzarrini to upgrade a Ferrari 250 GT SWB into a GTO beater – the result was the distinctive Breadvan, so known due to its extended rear roofline and shooting-break appearance. The re-bodied Ferrari made its debut at the 1962 Le Mans 24 Hours, outpacing all of Enzo’s GTOs before being sidelined by a driveshaft failure. Despite being immensely valuable, thanks to the enthusiasm of its current owner, it continues to regularly compete in major historic events such as the Silverstone Classic.'

I see the breadvan was crashed at Goodwood last month!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I got the chance to work on the Fast and Furious 7 in Abu Dhabi and I drove the MP4-12C back to its resting place, loved it!!  The steering wheel felt so precise it was scary, that on top of the acceleration would be real fun on a track, unfortunately I only drove it round the Emirates Palace.  I managed to drive quite a few exotics that day, I started up and drove/re-parked a Veyron, a McLaren SLR 722 and I was the precision driver in the yellow Ferrari 458 in the film, the scene where the cars all come in to park one after each other.  The weekend before I drove vehicle number 2 (black Suburban) in the scene with Kurt Russell.  No cameras allowed as you would expect, but I think there are a couple of iPhone snaps somewhere!!

Sounds like a fun day at the office ;D May I ask what you do for a living?

Hi V8, I’m a Consular Officer in Dubai.  I got the Consul Generals invitation to attend the McLaren MP4-12C launch (as he knows I'm a McLaren fan) and a good friend is a photo-journalist for a weekly motoring magazine in his spare time, he gets invites to all the swanky events!!
He received the invite for precision drivers for the FF7 movie and got a few of his mates to fill the roles, he also got me into the McLaren P1 launch (I’ll post some of those photo’s later) and we'll be out in the desert for the desert challenge in a couple of weeks.

Why is the top of the hood so blurred? It looks odd to me, but I really like the colours and the faux film edge, though I think the vignette is a touch heavy handed.

But it is your work and I respect that and appreciate my opinions are not worth anything  ;)

The Vette is such an iconic car in that colour scheme and your shot really shows it up well but I have to agree with PBD about the blurred hood - it does look at odds with the rest of the image. 

Love the bike shots and it's hard to choose between the treatments.

Hi Stewart.
Excellent shots. I really like the first and second shots, the first shot you can see where every tread of the tyre threw up its own little dust cloud to make the complete dust storm the car is creating, the second one is absolutely fabulous, how long did that rooster tail hang for, it must have taken a second or two for the bike to get that far away.

I bet you enjoyed every second of that event.

Cheers, Graham.

Who doesn't like an italian super car in the italian sunshine with all its best angles reflected in in one image? Here we have the pinnacle of the bull, the Lamborgini Aventadore outside the factory where it was built. Named after a fighting bull that fought particularly valiantly in the bull ring of Saragossa, Spain in 1993.

A fire breathing 6.5L V12 powers the car surrounded in a carbon-fibre monocoque chassis. 0-60 in 2.9 seconds and frightening top speed of 217mph!

Earlier on in the year I was lucky enough to go to Sant'Agata Bolognese, Italy and visit the Lamborghini factory and here is one of the images I took. When I saw this opportunity I couldn't help but take a quick picture. Absolutely beautiful car with a myriad of styling which is epitomises the brand.

Hi Roo.
Lovely shots, I know which one I'd take if they offered me the keys to both, and a clue is it wouldn't be the reproduction! There is just something about the classic lines and the lack of meddling computers, just raw driving pleasure!
My modern Mercedes Vito computer has been obnoxious this week, refusing to talk to the dash, canbus cannot communicate with dashboard error on Monday, so I jumped in my 1972 Triumph 2.5PI, which had been sitting for a fortnight unused, fired right up and I've been really enjoying driving the wheels off it, trouble is its cost me about three weeks worth of driving the van in terms of fuel! Oh well it's only money and you can't take it with you!

Cheers, Graham.

Just picked up a canon 10-18 and it's so different to use than my 50, lol. Do you guys and gals think upgrading to a 70d body would influence my pictures enough to justify the purchase? I don't make money off my photos of course.

I've been told by a few just upgrading to a 70d from my t3, it won't necessarily be much better-- of course this doesn't apply to videos and the very nice autofocus. It's hard to find comparisons between the two since the t3 is so low on the totem pole.


I feel like the t3 is limiting me vs how a 70d would perform... But i don't know, that's why I'm here haha. Do you think instead of upgrading bodies I should try to improve my performance with my t3? Perhaps a 17-55 2.8 instead of my 10-18?

Hi V8 Beast.
That could be because the Germans seem to be able to build their passion for driving in to the cars despite regulations and emissions requirements.
A few years ago I asked a German friend how they keep their unrestricted autobahn sections, he said no politician would dare to act to restrict them, they would not have a long career.
The Germans I have met love to drive fast, but they also understand lane discipline, unlike many over here that sit in the middle lane for the entire journey even when the left lane is empty!  ::)

Cheers, Graham.

I'm surprised to read that they would have past in another bracket. My understanding is that the emission control that were deactivated during normal driving caused up to 40 times more emissions for certain types of gases (NOx for one). That seems like quite a big difference compared to their claims.

Also, to me that is a big problem because they advertised themselves as a group who cared about emission control. But am I surprised, not really...

I love German cars :)

Hi Guy.
Before I saw the link I was going to say more petrol, one can always use more petrol!
A very nice model, thanks for sharing. The quality inspector at the factory I used to work at made a V8 about that scale, and then we watched in awe as he added fuel and started it, it revved beautifully and sounded awesome. Unfortunately it was before camera phones so no evidence to show.

Cheers, Graham.

I recently got to do a stunt driving experience and hung around for the next session to get some shots.  The only stunt you don't do yourself is driving on 2 wheels but the ramp to ramp, handbrake turn and 360 spins are are pretty straight forward with the instruction.  My only problem was stalling it first time out - haven't driven a manual in a loong time...at least that's my excuse!  ;D  It's pretty well run and they also do V8 drives/rides, motorcycle training and Lambo/Ferrari drives at the same time.

Gotta love Australia. The lawyers would never allow something like the ramp-to-ramp here in the U.S. How do I get a visa? LOL :D

Hi matthias.
Welcome to the forum.
Very nice series of shots, there are a few ways to upload a picture, I use the bbcode option from Flickr, others add as attachment, there is a size limit on uploaded, I believe there is a minimum number of posts before you can start a thread so there may be a minimum number of posts before you are allowed to upload, this is due to scammers and spammers having been here a few times recently.

Cheers, Graham.

Nice work V8, amazing looking car and the detail is incredible. What lights are you using now, we talked about them in the past.

I can't believe they put that much effort into a live rear axle, why not independent?
Title: Re: Cars cars cars (and some bikes)
Post by: V8Beast on May 25, 2016, 12:28:52 AM
I think they wanted to retain the solid axle to retain a traditional look.

As for lights, I'm using White Lightnings for the overall exterior shocks, and speedlites for the engine and interior shots. I usually prefer the fall-off characteristics of the speedlights over the big strobes for the exterior detail shots, but lighting up the metal flake in such a dark paint required more juice on this shoot :)

WOW!  Literally WOW!  :o
What a stunning vehicle, look at the detail in the air boxes! there's even a pin stripe painted on the fuel rails, that live axl is stunning, that paint colour is incredible.........it would be an immense feeling of pleasure driving that bad boy around. 
Amazing photos of an amazing vehicle  ;)

Just for you, I think this one was Gulf colours, though still not strictly a GT40 as it has the bubble on the top for the drivers skid lid to go in, more of a GT45!  :o ;D

Ye I really like the marble image too. Those cars are real rubber burners!

They were phone attachments on the car for some reason! Don't really understand why they would use phones instead... But they were selling footage on USB sticks could possibly be wifi hubs didn't ask but strange set up.

There is a simple rule for 911's and some of the older rear drive cars I drive, if you think you went in to the corner too fast it will be if you lift off, if you know you went in to the corner too fast it doesn't matter what you do!  ;D

Ps, not saving for one but wouldn't say no if I was given one!

Hi Folks.
Thought I would resurrect this thread a bit, well not really me, my 5yr old Nephew Henry took these with my old 20D, first time he ever held it.
I was really pleased as my brother said it was my risk if Henry broke it. He was incredible with it, really careful, the only thing was by the end of the day he would say may I have my camera please! Seems like I may be going to loose my 20D! :o Oh and he left me with 320 shots to sort through! ::) ;D
I have cropped and straightened most of them, I hope to get him hooked then work on improving his technique and getting him off P later, don't want to push him too hard too soon.  ;)

I wonder is it wrong to ask if some of you would be kind enough to take a look at his shots and perhaps offer him a bit of encouragement please.

He's a good shooter!

Hi Folks.
Thought I would resurrect this thread a bit, well not really me, my 5yr old Nephew Henry took these with my old 20D, first time he ever held it.
I was really pleased as my brother said it was my risk if Henry broke it. He was incredible with it, really careful, the only thing was by the end of the day he would say may I have my camera please! Seems like I may be going to loose my 20D! :o Oh and he left me with 320 shots to sort through! ::) ;D

Hi Lion rock.
Despite not using it much I can't see Auntie Angela relinquishing her SL1 (100D here) plus I can easily transfer to the 20D (and maybe once I'm sure I can trust him with more valuable gear) the 40D or 7D, I don't get on well with the SL1, I find it hard to change settings though it is a nice small camera!

Cheers, Graham.

ValveBounce,
Kids are really adept and adapt to using modern electronic equipment.  They don't need manuals.
But 100D is really easy to hold with small hands and rather light weight.
Got my daughter one, and a diving case too, and she likes it for shooting when travelling.

But, you have to decide what to do; he may very well take to racing, and in which case, it calls for a Maserati  ::) 8) ;D ;D !  Hate to be in your shoes.

Valve bounce,
With all the fancy cars and fast ones here in this thread, I feel I'm out of league 8), but it' just fun to throw in an old antique, just to be different.
It had "Commer" model on the front.  The spoke wheel (full shot below) really belong in an era well before my time.
This was shot near Adelaide, Australia, in the middle of nowhere, and the place (museum) served instant coffee only!  A real throw back when flat white is the norm  :'(.
Thanks for the comment.

Thanks for the clarification, the car looks somewhat sad, rusting in peace!
I really like places like that, a museum as a museum of a different time?
Plus I’d sooner have instant than many exotic grinds of fresh!

I haven't posted for a while but here is a few of one of my favourite 911s of all time 996 C4S Vert. Supplied by one of the most renowned Porsche Specialists in the UK David Forrest of Strasse Leeds.

Shocker... All shot with a 6DMKII 70-200MKII and 24-70MKI. Still think the 6DMKII is excellent especially for this sort of work. Getting low not having to ruin your knees or get all muddy laying on the ground.

Shot at Lowther Castle, Cumbria. Gorgeous Location, got there just in time after a rather nice drive :D

Hi Tom.
Very nice series of shots, I can well imagine the drive on some of the surrounding roads especially if you manage to dodge all the dawdlers (oh look a sheep, oh look another sheep, ooohh a lamb!)! ;D ;D
Was the Porsche posed on private areas of the site or was the shoot after the public had left?

Cheers, Graham.

I haven't posted for a while but here is a few of one of my favourite 911s of all time 996 C4S Vert. Supplied by one of the most renowned Porsche Specialists in the UK David Forrest of Strasse Leeds.

Shocker... All shot with a 6DMKII 70-200MKII and 24-70MKI. Still think the 6DMKII is excellent especially for this sort of work. Getting low not having to ruin your knees or get all muddy laying on the ground.

Shot at Lowther Castle, Cumbria. Gorgeous Location, got there just in time after a rather nice drive :D

Thank you Graham.

It is fantastic, the top down experience although not the technically the purist view of a 911. With it having 4wd and the Cab its the the heaviest in the range so not as nimble as a classic Carrera or S.

That being said the sports exhaust on and the small country lanes the noise bounces around and with the roof down and a warm spring evening it was a lot of fun. 996 4s are my favorite not necessarily the cab but the rear end I think is probably one of the best looking Porsche ever made. Couldn't help but falling in love with it tho, especially in the colour, pretty rare to see a 996 in anything but silver or black. The cab is definitely a compromise worth having.

This time of year its still pretty quiet tbh so not a lot of traffic its usually summer holidays where its a bit of a pain with tourists. Its currently lambing season so the area around is all open from them to graze. There is a rural road through the middle with the old tracks which was the entrance to the castle 50 years ago before it burned down. The entrances are usually closed with wooden posts put in the ground but they had all been pulled out so the farmers could get though to aid lambing.

It was late on, around 8pm and I was looking for locations to shoot the car. There was a farmer there and just asked and he said no problem so took the opportunity. The light was right so got the whole shoot done there and then.

Hi Tom,

V. nice set of a modern classic... :)
I can imagine you had an enjoyable experience on the not too crowded roads and doing the shoot in that envitonment (and weather)! I know I did enjoy even being a passenger in a (well known to you) Z4M with the top down a couple of years ago, driving these English country roads :)  8)

From your signature... did you splash out for a 5D4 - seeing you're still very satisfied with the 6D2; what made you decide to get the 5D4 anyhow? ...Just curious ... ;)

Wiebe.

Thanks Wiebe.

I did miss out with having the coupe version, they just look so good... they are also super rare. The roadies are spectacular too, the metallic rasp from the S54 on the Z4Ms is one of my favs... but the 911s are far louder and love that note too.

In terms of the cameras, I shoot a lot of different subjects so use different cameras.

Lots of commercial stuff like the above which dont necessarily need the safety of twin cards or the build of the 5 series. The 6DMKII is basically my commercial camera, the screen has been the best addition to a FF camera and aided in my workflow more than I could have imagined. I have one on the 70D but really dont like the sensor so it never really got used, just a backup.

I do a lot of commercial pub photography and generally lighting is extremely low and the interiors are cramped. The camera is on a tripod and usually im pressed up against a wall having the screen is a god send. I also have to bracket anyway because of the extremes in light and no camera can expose to the extremes you need for this sort of photography so the DR is a non issue. Although ive not had a problem with DR really, the odd occasion I get a tiny bit of colour noise but putting the slider up to 35 solves it completely. Non issue for me.

I also do a lot of studio work for a PPE company, photography gloves, helmets, respiratory products and safety glasses and having the tilt screen is ideal so I can stand above like an old medium format camera.

It has pretty much become my go to for everything... travel, commercial, landscape, studio, personal etc because its just a great camera and I love using it. I also really like the files that come out of it. It feels like a 5DMKIII without the IQ issues, I loved that camera but loathed the purple cast when you pull shadows and the banding.

Pretty much solved on the 6DMKII as you can see from some of the Porsche images, I was shooting directly into the sun and those are single exposures, the camera handled it without issue. Which is the take away, its been unfairly judged when it is very capable.

Its also stupidly cheap for what it offers, its 90% a 5DIV and I paid £1470 when it was launched you can buy them new for £1200 now. Shocking how good the value proposition is vs £2500 £2200 if your lucky.

I also shoot motorsport so use the 7DMKII as its ideal for speed and with a 70-200mm becomes a 320 F4 IS lens which is perfect with 10FPS track side. Here its important to have dual cards as in the UK the weather is so changeable and I have drowned cameras before so need to ensure there is a back up card incase of failure.

This is where the 5DMKIV comes in because I use the FF camera as a secondary with a standard focal length to document. It needs to have the weather sealing and the twin slots again because of the elements.

The main reason for the 5DMKIV is I shoot weddings and portraits. This is my primary wedding camera, I wouldnt want to shoot a wedding without twin cards really... Should the worst happen there is no way of going back, worst nightmare loosing a wedding. The 6DMKII is capable but for this kind of work its not the most suitable.

The sensor in the 5DMKIV is also slightly better, weddings are tough any advantage is worth having. So many times I find myself in dark conditions and super changeable light so the 5DMKIV is ideal as the IQ is better. Pulling highlights and shadows is a breeze.

I do use the 6DMKII also, but it wont be my main camera. I also find the 6DMKIIs AF range a little close together for portraits... I find that im not using the full frame when using the camera in portrait orientation. There isnt a point anywhere near the eye, I often get home and there is about 1/4 of the image above the head thats unused because im using the top AF point and have to crop down which isnt ideal.

TBH the 5DMKIV only gets used for the above, the 6DMKII is my go to for most things. Just like it.

I think its a great all rounder and dare I say better in many respects over the 5D apart from weather sealing, AF, card slots and IQ. These are subjective, it really depends what your doing. Its easy to get carried away on forums as you get pros and amateurs talking about extreme conditions as the norm and the small feature as make or break. Many times people feel its not worth buying because of this but really those situations are 1-10% for most amateurs but the camera is 50% more expensive.

For commercial photography the subjects generally dont move so AF is a non issue, the weather is good because its planned that way, so weather sealing isnt an issue and IQ... again depends if you need it, knowing when to shoot and how to deal with situations is the difference. 1 or 2 stops of DR doesn't magically make these situations easy.

The main positives is that its lighter, FF is FF so can use all my nice lenses natively, GPS - great location scouting I can figure out exaclty where I was. WIFI - great if your on the road just send images to the macbook and the rotating screen ive spoke about. Just a great all round tool for most situations.

At the end of the day for me different cameras are used for different purposes and they all have reasons to be in the kit. Its also nice to have backups incase something should go wrong.

If you need a one camera solution then its a tough call because the 5DMKIV is a safer camera and it is the best all rounder. On the other hand its too much camera for many jobs and the flip screen makes my job easier in many respects.

Im lucky ive never had a card fail in the 15 years ive been working as a pro... I switch them out regularly and dont put them in any adverse conditions. I think the issue is overblown, unless your shooting weddings and events where its just sensible.

The other thing is for years I shot film, youve only got one role no duplicates. Until the 5DMKII there were no twin cards apart from 1Ds and they were always too big. I used the 40D, 5DMKI for a long time again single slots. 5DMKII was the first camera I had with twin slots, its only 9 1/2 years since it was released, what did people do before? Its only really been a recent thing but its nice to have safety when shooting important things.

Like I said you pick the tool for the job. I suppose you make a call on what you need.

Hope that helps :)

Wow, Tom, that's quite some explanation ;)
Thanks for sharing your experiences and thoughts in so much depth!
The one thing I noticed from your story - you must have smaller hands than I do - I decided to go for the 7DmkII over the 80D because my hands did not agree with the ergonomics of the 80D...
Where I can easily work with the back wheel on the bigger 7DmkII (which is almost equal to 5DmkIII/IV), I just couldn't operate the smaller wheel on the 80D (which is almost equal to 6DmkII). My right thumb reaches too far past it and I can't bend it back sufficiently ;)
I would have liked the flippy screen though - despite the risk of being less robust...

Wiebe.

No problem.

I agree there is a bit of a change with ergonomics but I think you can get around this with the way you use the camera. I take a size 9 large in a glove usually which is about bang average.

In reality The ergonomics are not so dissimilar the body sizes are almost identical. The rear wheels arent too different and are almost in the same place, its only about 10-15% bigger on the 7/5Ds.

(https://www.apotelyt.com/i3/canon-6d-mark-ii-vs-canon-5d-mark-iv-rear-a.jpg)

I tend to leave my thumb near the image review button and use the fleshy bit just above my thumb knuckle to turn the wheel in an anti clockwise fashion. That gives a 1/4 of a turn which gives 8 clicks. Its obvious why canon has done this on the 6/80D body styles because from the centre point there are four points to the right and left of the centre point so you can get from one side of the AF range to the other with one quarter turn.

I do agree the 5D/7D body styles are much easier to use but its not really like the difference between a XXXD and XXD.

Since the 6DMKII doesn't have a joystick. I now use the twin wheels to change the AF points. I always used the joystick on the 5D's but one push moves you one point along, with the click wheel in the same time you can move 4 which is again centre to extreme right or left points. So the top controls horizontal and the rear wheel controls vertical.

The actual click multi directional dial in the center is completely useless and Ive never seen a review that actually describes the above AF point selection method. I now use this on all my bodies and dont use the AF control stick as I find its slower.

I think in use everyday 365 with these cameras they are very suited working together and if like me you use them that much it becomes second nature.

Thats one thing I do like about the 6DMKII, with the 5D series after a day shooting a wedding 12-14 hours and 3-4000 images my wrist and forearm are always really sore. The slightly smaller body and weight really make a big difference depending on which lens you have attached.

Hi Tom.
Well it sounds like you had a blast driving the Porsche, and good fortune with the local farmer permitting you to access such a beautiful location.
I thought something with a name like Lowther Castle would be a cherished tourist attraction (national treasure), your photos give the impression of a very intact, very impressive building, not a burned out shell. Such a shame.

Here's a few of my MX5 SP, which I've owned from new.
This was an Australia only model with a high performance turbo engine, which I've hotted up a bit and it puts out nearly 300 hp at the rear wheels.

A few more Australia only cars taken at the Gosford Car Museum (about 70k's north of Sydney.
The green car is a Holden Monaro from around 1969.
The silver car is a Valiant Charger (smaller than a Dodge Charger and based on the Australian Valiant which by then, 1973 or so, was completely different to the US Valiant). You can see this model was produced with a hemi-head 265cu in straight six with triple Webbers.
The yellow car is a Torana SLR5000. A small car (about the size of a modern Corolla) with a 5 litre (308 cu in) V8. I had one of these back in 1974.
Hope you like them.

Its got a bit of a black history, the fire was apparently arson and the owner did this because of costs to upkeep the place. Its all speculation but National Trust wanted nothing to do with it.

It got a lottery grant and is now its own trust with public access. The grounds have all been re created, the interesting bits are inside the castle grounds and what was the front where I shot the images is all grazing.

Would be great to use the actual grounds as a shoot location. Too much work and hoops to jump through. I actually think the front is a nicer backdrop. Would have been a spectacular place in its heyday.

There are a few images here just before and as they began renovations. Havent been in for quite a few years, probably should go back to see how they have got on.

An interesting series of shots, particularly the older cars, thanks for taking the effort to describe them and how they differ.
I bet the MX5 is a fun ride, we have a European spec MK3.5 with sport pack and that is a blast!

Hi Roo.
Thank you.
Very nice series from you too, nice bike, stunning colour!
I like the angle for the last shot, not a common view of a Camero, nice looking car too.

Cheers, Graham.

Nice shots Graham and Tom!  Love the location for the Porsche shoot :)

Some from a weekend car and bike show.

Thanks very much Graham. A bit of improvisation on the Camaro shot - camera on the ground with the end of the lens resting on my car key fob to get the upward angle.

Just a small sampling of the bikes around the parking area for the Custom Bike Competition.

My wife's cousin restored this '71.  We cleaned and polished until this baby glowed.

That's a beauty!  Lot's of work and it paid off.
