Re: Close-up shots!

I just recovered these close-up shots, although blurry at 100% as the karts were driving fast.

These were taken when I was outside the perimeter of the circuit, so 500mm was used. Later I entered the circuit and came very close to the track and could actually take close-up shots of the karts at 24mm, but then the fast drivers quit and subsequent games were slow and no fun at all so I didn't photograph any more.

This nonetheless demonstrated the DSLR world / Sony RX series' general attitude of trading focal length for more light per pixel (hence better performance for action / low light photography). For example, the RX100M7 has only 200mm but is better at action photography.

On the other hand, the Nikon P900/P950/P1000 specializes in long-zoom, stationary-target photography.
