Right guys, a friend of a freind of a friend has a race team and races all across the world in a series. I may have hinted that Id love a pass to take photos next time he races and he got back to me saying that his next race was at spa, Belgium (IIRC). However, next wednesday he has a test session somewhere in Leicester (don't know all the details yet) where we can go down and practice. What kit should I take? There will be 2 of us, I'll be using a 1Ds mk III and my partner a 40D. Now the only lens that is even semi adequate for this is an L series Canon 70-200mm f/4. Im thinking of hiring one for the day from.. http://www.lensesforhire.co.uk/canon-telephoto-8-c.asp What would you recommend? bearing in mind no money is being made from this so I don't want to spend too much on hire but Im not sure 200mm will be enough ? Ive never tried panning but as I understand it you dont need a ridiculously high shutter speed for this so something like a f/1.8 is a bit overkill, right? Any tips? Do I need a monopod or will handheld be fine?
