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

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

cheers

Hi guys. I have a gear list on my blog site: www.scottjones.net  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 ;-)

Scott,

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..
