    with f2.8 lenses should be ablr to get 1/250.
    not sure if 1/250 can stop the car on the spot with wheels and all frozen.

    And you'd need some seriously powerful flash guns to illuminate the cars 100-200m away...

    erm... does this means we can still bring our own bottled water in as long as it doesn't exceed 1.25 litres?

    1. Get temporary employment with a media company with F1 media accreditation.
    2. Buy media accreditation from F1, US$10,000 per media for those not covering F1 on regular basis.

    to me, what doubt is there... if my container's capacity does not exceed 1.25 litres... then i'm fine. as a good citizen, i abide by this rule. then the other clause say i shall not bring food or beverage in. now i'm in doubt of whether can or cannot

    The 24-70 is not a telephoto lens.

    i had a gut feeling that this F1 will have a lot of confusion since it is the first time.

    they say can bring container if the capacity do not exceed 1.25 litres, but never say it can be filled with anything like water...

    The nightrace F1 here in Singapore is not starting on the right foot with the fiasco when trying to buy the tickets.

    Looking at the way the crowd control was handled during the Singapore Airshow I'm not sure how well will the planning be for the race. I'm sure that that the spin doctors will say sorry and it was their first time doing the F1 race if some things go south during the race.

    I believe that there'll be no DSLR and water to be brought in during the F1 and they'll quote for security reason.
