I know, I know, 2017 is over and let's focus on 2018, achieve this year's goals but let's just not forget about the last BTCC season which probably was the last one for me.
Beginning of last year I was attended at Round 1 of the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship as a Nikon photographer. At the time I owned a Nikon D7100 body and several lenses from 18 mm to 300mm. Of course, if you know me and saw my work, I always have at least one prime lens with me. This weekend at Brands Hatch wasn't any different than others. I had with me a Nikon kit lens 70-300mm for zooms, 18-105 for wide-angle shots and the 35mm f/1.8 and the 50mm f/1.4 for portraits and detail shots.
Race day Sunday went very well for everybody, I was pleased with the images, but still had a few minor issues with my camera, such as focusing, keeping the focus on the subject and the biggest from all was the ISO button. Even if my Nikon had several native buttons I was (and many more Nikon users) unable to relocate to a sensible place. Part from this I was pleased with Nikon and at the time I had know idea about I will cover the final race at the same circuit with a different camera system.
Stay tuned and soon you will find out how I selected my new gear and you will hear other, now funny stories about my big change.
