    Default World Rally CHampionship: Recommendation for film and lense usage

    Yay!! The WRC is finally here. I will be going to the forest stages this weekend, bloody excited. What equipment should I bring ? They are all listed below... . Not sure if I shld lug the flash ard, or the tripod. I should be using Superia400 this time round, hope it is fast enough to freeze the action when I want to.

    It will largely depend on the weather. 200/400 film with fast glass (ie: 400/2.8, 600/4) is good for most of the forest stages, but if it's overcast you may need 800 ISO film.

    One tip, get there EARLY as the good spots get taken really fast in the public access areas.

    Lens wise I normally shoot anything from 17 to 1600mm with rallies depending on the location I'm shooting from.

    Flash: It's useful if you are going in to the pit areas. It's not wise to use flash fill when the cars are racing as it may distract the drivers.
