RC Panning

Hi Everyone

I would like to visit a track day one day soon to get some panning shots, I have never done any panning before, I understand the technique needed, but was hoping you could share some tips on settings, shutter speed etc.

Also which of the IS settings is the one to use for panning across ?

Heres some practice shots I took today with a RC car, although trying to pan with your elbows on the floor is a little hard

Taken in shutter mode, 1/60, ISO 100, C-AF Cross type

Re: RC Panning

I think you've got it.
One tip is to keep panning after you take the shot, just for a bit.
It helps preventing you slowing the pan as you push the button.

Thanks for the tip Paul, do you know which is the best is setting no 2 or 3 for when I'm panning across like these shots. I think it's no 3 but not sure

Re: RC Panning

It'll be I.S. 2 for horizontal panning.... although it is admittedly a little confusing with the wording...

I.S. 1 Image stabilizer is on.

I.S. 2 This is used for panning with the camera in the horizontal direction to achieve a blurred background. The horizontal image stabilizer is turned off, and only the vertical image stabilizer is activated.

I.S. 3 This is used for panning with the camera in the vertical direction to achieve a blurred background (tilting). The vertical image stabilizer is turned off, and only the horizontal image stabilizer is activated.

Re: RC Panning

Setting #2 is what you want.
It turns off the horizontal IS so that you can pan.
But leaves in the vertical IS in case you shake it up & down.

I find the documentation perfectly clear <shrug> must be I'm a geek

Re: RC Panning

I found it clear, but think that the 'panning with the camera in the xxxx direction,' could be construed as holding the camera in a landscape or portrait position... leaving out the word 'with' would have made it much clearer that it was the movement of the camera, not the position of the body...
