    Has anyone encountered a problem with heat waves? I realized when i was photographing the drag racing events that a good amount of my photos did not look to great at a 100% crop due to excessive heat waves on the track. Is there anyway I can solve this by using different settings or what? Thanks.

    There is no way I know to eliminate heat waves from a photo which includes them. Now then, we should all realize that viewing images at 100% crop isn't quite like viewing a printed photo from a normal viewing distance. I think too many of us tend to view our images at 100% and decide they are bad if there is anything that isn't completely perfect. In many cases, the images would be fine for most uses other than billboard size.
