P1 powerboat racing at Bournemouth today

I took the day off from the gallery to drop by the beach and pier at Bournemouth to fire off a "few" frames with some camera club friends (thanks to my lovely Pam for letting out for a day, back on duty tomorrow )

I was using the EM-1 + 40-150 f2.8, with and without the TC and with a CPL of the front. I have decided that if this system was a women I would want to marry it, the more I get used to it the greater pleasure it gives me )

Here are a few of the images (only another 2,800 + to process and because of how good the kit is, not too many duff focus shots, less than 2% so far! )

Sensational shots, Brian. Just wondering how #5 ended up!

Re: P1 powerboat racing at Bournemouth today

thanks both,
Mark #5 ended the loop perfectly (as he did many more) but he is the World Champion at it

Thanks to this wonderful system I could bore you with many such sequences at 9 fps but will resist the temptation

(I may put the best from each of the two riders playing in the surf on my flikr site a bit later though )

Great shots! Now I must say to myself "the 50-200mm works for me" the rest of the day to keep from GASSING for the 40-150 PRO!
