    We are so spoiled these days

    I was looking at an AP email that was discussing the relative merits of the various Canon R series cameras. One comment struck me, 5 FPS is probably too slow for action photographers. When I was a callow youth i was mad about motorsport and aircraft. These are fast moving objects and my camera was a Pentax Spotmatic (sorry for blaspheming). For those that don't know that had, lever film advance, manual focussing and aperture control via a match needle system. Amazingly I was able to get around an 80% success rate shooting, motorcycle racing, car racing. car rallying and air displays. 5 frames per second was a dream. Now we told that we need 10, 20 30 or even 40 frames per second to take action shots. That's total and utter rubbish we don't. I seldom use burst mode, preferring to use skill to get a single shot.. It's so much more satisfying. This sequence was taken as single shots.

    BTW these are small Jpegs for social media so the full size shots are better quality.

      Very well captured Alan, great work. My 40d I think is only capable of around 4-6 fps (I think) which your right is low by today's standards, but it's more than enough for me when I need it. I find perfected timing much more satisying than taking 40fps and not having to worry about thinking much
