Motorsports are great!

If you ever have the chance to watch a motor race live, DON'T PASS ON THAT!I had the opportunity to watch the Formula 1 Grand Prix of Budapest in 2011 and I believe it was one of the greatest experiences of my life. You probably see motor races on TV all the time, but being there live doesn't compare to the real race. The roaring engines and their sounds are incredible.Besides races are a good opportunity to exercise your panning techniques.First thing you need to do is to get a good seat.... continue reading

Addressing all happy Canon users

Hello,Last month i decided i wanted to part from my old Canon 400D and its kit lens.
