Local fun park at night - hi-speed action and mirrorless in operation

2 years 6 months ago #674192 by Ozzie_Traveller
G'day all

There is a lot of interest these days in mirrorless cameras and their speed / performance operation

I have been running mirrorless for many years now - the Panny G2 for best part of a decade has been replaced last year with the Panny FZ2500 - and the improvements in AF-C and other things is quite noticeable

Last Saturday night I went down the road to a local fun park and had a pleasant hour or two shooting heaps of action - some hi-speed stuff looking at the faces of kids enjoying the thrills of it all - and lots of long-shutter blur stuff

Here's a group of 4 pics where the Whizzer is coming towards the camera at high speed before it spun around and disappeared around to the other side

Typical exif ... Panny FZ2500; ISO-3200; 1/250s x F5,6 shooting at 12fps

They are so cute. Not bad for high speed shots.

G'day Monica

Thank you for the response - and you are the first one to address the focus-at-speed topic that I was referring to in the header.  :)

While 1/250s is not perfect for the speed of things here, the point of the post was to assist others here with the knowledge that mirrorless focus systems can track subjects that are moving "pretty quickly" ~ and these bucket-things with the children as passengers were certainly flying past me at a great speed

It sure is fast. I am also practicing in my high speed shots as well.
