It makes it easy to get pics of the cars when they're stopped at the time slip booth, lol. I took some reverse panning shots of cars going down the track - that is to say that the background is in perfect focus and the cars are blurry.
I took these pics with a Canon Elph set to really high res. I don't like it as much as I did my old Sony Cybershot but I got it as a present so I can't complain. One of these days I'd love to get a real camera but I don't see that happening any time soon. One of these days I'd like to get my Chevelle done too and that ain't going to happen if I'm blowing money on other hobbies.
