Casey Stoner is simply unstoppable at Qatar

Given the state of his hand, Lorenzo's riding is impressive

Desert nights

Hiroshi Aoyama - fastest of the rookies, and someone to watch

The Pramac bikes really do look a lot better in the flesh. Could lime green be the new black?

The Moto2 bikes were just mayhem. Yuki Takahashi confirmed his strong start to the season

Marco Simoncelli looks fantastic, but just can't get any speed out of his San Carlo Gresini Honda

Speed captured. Alvaro Bautista has made an impressive debut on the Rizla Suzuki

Scott Redding started Moto2 strongly, but got caught up in the melee

Alex De Angelis was a front runner throughout practice at Qatar

After initially struggling, Raffaele de Rosa finally got his head around four strokes and started to fly

Toni Elias might be to Moto2 what Casey Stoner is to MotoGP

Great shots, is it possible to have the photo info listed too

IE: f stop, exposure ISO etc? or even if Scott put that in the EXIF data that would be cool too


Hi guys. I have a gear list on my blog site:  Look for My Gear on the right side. Just been chatting with David here in the Losail media center about writing something up about the tech side of the Qatar images. Until then, I'm using a Nikon D700 for most of the track shots, and usually at ISO 6400 if I'm trying to get shots with no blur. I then run the files through Noise Ninja to clean them up. At ISO 6400, I can get f/6 or 7 and 1/300 sec. It's dark enough even with the lights that this is about as fast as I can shoot, which is why I do so much slow shutter panning.  I can use my D300 for the shots at 1/60, 1/30, 1/10th and drop the ISO down to where it looks pretty good. I also use it in the pit lane with an SB900. Hope that helps.

Thanks a lot for the info! You're a really skilled photographer, thank you for sharing here!

What lens(es) are you using this weekend? The 400/2.8 or 200 - 400/4? And which focal length (if you're using the zoom)?

Would f/2.8 give you to little depth of field?

ps: yes, I do like this "behind the scene" infos here at motomatters ;-)


Nice work. You may need to consider a Nikon D3S for even better low light capability.
I only have the D3 and D2Xs.
Bought a Nikon 14-24 mm lens for my last overseas trip to China and Cambodia. Nice lens.

I prefer the TC14E to the TC17e..Have all three NIKON TC's, but, the TC14E seems to work better for me..

Thanks for sharing the images, I appreciate it - great work!
