Tracking Surfers with X-T1
10 months ago

After the rains, the surf was supposed to be good for surfers. So I tried out the X-T1 on some surfers this morning. I had it set at f8, 1/1000 sec, auto ISO, Continuous, 8 frames/sec, 55-200 mm (at 55mm for these). These are 5 of a set of 36 at FlickrĀ

These are uncropped.  The first shots were pretty far out so the surfer is a very small part of frame. Enlarge these to check sharpness.  I wasn't able to keep him centered all the time but I think with more practice, I will.

About a third or more into the run.

Near the end.

Travel in RV when not home.
