First Shots from the Racetrack w/A77 Help!!!
Apr 24, 2012

This gallery contains all shots taken at the race track A77 w/70-200G. Colors are great, speed is good, accuracy good. But, when I loose eye contact w/race car through the view finder for that split second while shooting drive at hi speed it scares the crap out of me. Have always shot w/both eyes open anyways it's going to take some time gettting used to this.
I feel more comfortible w/A900.

Can anyone suggest a work around, in that fraction of a second a race car could be climging the barrier and I'm going to become a hood orniment.
Definitely shoot in RAW not pleased w/Jpegs however I'm comparing it to my A900.

I might have to investigate that. Hopefully Sony has recognized this as an issue and whatever the A900 is will have a fix. This could be dangerous for us at the race track. Seriously.
I was 20ft away from Aug 20th,2011 crash....

as I was w/this one:
