Action shots with SX40. Are they possible.
9 months ago

I really enjoy using my SX40 with its great zoom and portability. Mainly used for static bird photos

and landscapes with terrific results. Just wondering whether I would be wasting my time trying to get shots of motor racing. Up to now I have used my old 10D with Sigma 18/200 or Canon 100/300 with pretty good results. The trouble is that at 78 with arthritic hands the weight of the 10D is not too comfortable these days. Does anybody have any experience of using the bridge camera trackside?

Or maybe I should get hold of the 100D which would appear to be easier to hold than the 10D which. after all, is getting somewhat ancient.

Merry Christmas
