    Came out really well, sorry but i beg to differ, most of them are blurry and you can see alot of the stuff around the actual action.

    The images that shows closeup is somewhat good.

    Dont see the point in 10003 picture either

    My bad I just love taking photo's of Drag cars! I could care less about your negative part of the comment! It was in Maryland and it was awesome! The high speed photo's are suppose to be blurry because it concentrates on the car not the crowd! Well thanks for the advice and it was my first time using this camera so they will turn out better this weekend at another drag race i'm going to.

    Nice pictures. I went to a drag race once. Man they are intense! I was in the very last row and i felt like my intestines were in places they shouldn't be. I don't know how the drivers do it. :cool:

    Event looks great. Some of the photos could be better, but all in all not bad.

    I know the continous sports mode makes my photo's only 3MP which I am not a favor of but thats what I used to capture that Al Anazbi black camaro at night with the pipes lit from the 3 stages of nitrous!

    8 from the last picture, is that a file box on the front of that car? It looks just like the one my wife keeps her files in at home. ;)

    Good pics, I think you did pretty good for a P & S. I don't think that camera has a removable lens. I think it could have done better in lower light, though if its in P & S mode, I am not surprised for its graininess.

    All in all, nice pictures. :cool:

    Yes it is lol! The guy who owns it likes to keep his car super clean! It's like a 125mm turbo! HE went 3.99 to the 1/8th at 184! Which is insane for a single turbo! He lives in Pa. I live in Jersey. I have another race this weekend in Maryland. I know I hate the Grainy pics but in low lighting I have to do continous sports mode to capture the flames lit like I did the black camaro! His car is called Black Ice!

    The scoops are hot! They help catch the air to go into the carburetor.
