    Nice video mate. However in some forms the manual focus part may work, I find it much easier to pan with Auto focus on AI Servo and track the subject and position my feet where I want to take the shot so that my body isn't straining and it's relaxed.
    Different techniques work for different people, but nice break down Keep up the good work and videos

    That and it's also in part down to how fast the AF of your camera is and when it comes to the A7, even it will struggle with high speed AF. I realise that this isn't a problem for those with 5D's and D4s's etc

    Nice vid dude. I actually wrote a guide along the same lines last month. 10 Tips For Better Motorsport Photography. Not sure if many of you saw it, but here's the link. I'd be happy to hear some feedback on it, I haven't written much for a couple years. pretty dusty haha.
