Mother fucking noise. Time for a D2H
most of the moving shots don't seem to have spot on focus ..
get the driver to wear a helmet or sunglasses, he looks dorky looking at the camera
yea, i told him.. he's 19
What lens are you using ?
Are you using autofocus, if so what mode ?
kit lens. AF-S, AF area Dynamic, AF assist on.
If you are shooting a moving object, switch to AF-C "continuous focus/tracking" mode and switch your auto-focus engage from the shutter half-press to the AE-Lock/AF-On button for the D70. (Remember that when you do this, Autofocus no longer turns on via the shutter button)
This way, you can turn on the autofocus and track your subject by holding down the AE-L/AF-On button and pan with your subject without having to hold down the shutter release button.
K, i switched it to AF-C and now in the future if i were to snap a shot, i press AE-L/AF-L, instead of half pressing the shutter release? Then full press the shutter release to snap the shot?
For AF-C, you need to hold down the AE-L/AF-L button. When you hold the button it keeps focusing.
For AF-S, just press it once and it will focus once.
This is great for focus tracking or for pre-focus setups...
Keep it on the center AF point as it's the one with the cross sensor.

csm 02 = AF-C
csm 03 = Single Area? (since car will be in middle generally?)
Then sight the car, hold AE-L/AF-L (continuously) and snap away?
Usually when you're tracking you'll want to use center point focus. Crop tight (in camera) and you can have your subject slightly off center. Focusing with just one point is a lot faster since the camera won't get confused a lot (i.e. focus on ground, then back to car). If you're panning, pan with the car before you take the shot (like a full swing, with shot in the middle).
when you say "CSM ##" you sound like you're talking about a seicanon
AF-C for moving objects
You can leave your AF-mode in dynamic, which means the AF system will track the object shift to another zone in the AF system if it does while tracking. Single point, fixed will not account for shifts.
I'm just suggesting that with the AF point selector, use the center point.
The angle you are trying to get the moving shots is where most of the problems lie. It's hard to get a good shot when the car is coming almost right at you. Try and get the shots where you get more of a side shot or build a rig so you can get some rolling shots.
Last shot isn't that bad but the car seems to get lost in the background (it's nice but almost too nice).
Do you have a polarizer?
How about a different crop?
rule of thirds works pretty good.
dmora...I take it this was with the d70? What was the ISO on?
damn, what time of day was it? but damn thats some noise on a camera that supposed to be leaps and bounds > the 300d.
Taken around 7.
