I think the trap with the video side of things is that it takes a lot more effort, gear and people to produce video of the sort of quality at the level expected of the photography side of the #IATS program - which is the sort of quality most of us would expect is acceptable (I'm assuming).


Personally, i'm not interested in doing much video. Been a bit gutted that there hasn't been much #IATS action this year, was under the impression there was going to be a new theme every month. Had been all enthused after making it into the first theme! Larry's guide posts recently have been awesome though.


I understand things may have changed since the beginning of the year of course. We don't know what's happening behind the scenes either :)

Spotted ya there Brad, I couldn't hang around as I had to take my mate back home not long after we arrived. Cool coverage :)

@hushypushy  I think they just haven't updated the rules in the lower section under "about #iamthespeedhunter" bit. They mentioned in an #iamthespeedhunter post a while back that they were going to start accepting larger images from memory, which is when the 2000px on the longest side rule appeared.

@aussieANON  They are accepting larger images these days. This was the guideline for this theme: 

  • Attach the image directly to the email but ensure the image is no larger than 2000px on the longest side and a minimum of 1920px.

I lust after the 135mm f2, but I'm afraid I'll do the same and reach for the 70-200 more often. You're absolutely right with caving and eventually getting the 70-200 2.8 after owning the f4 too, I did exactly that last week when picking up my shiny new 5DIII :)

@bigeastbay Try putting the camera in spot metering and shutter priority mode. From memory the Nikon 55-250 has VR? Flick that on and start at around 1/80 shutter speed and slowly increase until you can consistently get the car in focus. If you're nailing it at 1/80, try slower for even more motion blur. Check to see what apertures the camera is giving, flick it into Manual mode and adjust slightly if under/over exposing and as the light changes.

Personally, I have never been into drifting. I mean, I get why it's popular and understand the skill required of the drivers and the engineering involved in the cars, but having been to a handful of events here in NZ it just doesn't get me excited. I don't get the people who elevate it to some "it's the only thing worth breathing for" status.

I've grown through my Teens in the 90's, twenties in the 00's (and now dangerously close to mid thirties, ugh!) along with the import scene here in NZ as it got big. I've seen the show and drag scenes get big and then take huge back seats to drifting which has dominated the past 7-10 years. Time Attack had a short, breathless, asthmatic puff at it here, but once big business got involved, and the gravity Mad Mike has brought it in this country, drifting got massive. The rise of the cheap drift hack and a plethora of easily converted RWD Nissans available helped this of course.

I prefer Rally and Hillclimb events, which is where I'll be found more often than drift events.
