I have been practicing fast moving subjects with my Z's. Seems to be adequate using methods Steve Perry and Hudson Henry suggest. I could have been closer or had a longer lens, but this cropped out pretty good. Originally, I had 1/500 SS but too much wing blur, so upped it to 1/1250. Probably should be closer to 1/2000 or higher. I am going to work these since my DSLR's are gone!

WOW! GREAT job, John! Keep posting. This is excellent!

I just decided to spend $900 on an antique 1910 art deco lamp......that money could have gone toward a Z7 II..............

Very nice. I like the little bit of wing blue in this one.

Well, thanks to Grandma I already have two early 1900's Art Deco lamps (very pretty, BTW) .......so does that mean I can get the Z7 II now?

Nice shot. I have done some of those with my D500 in the past but have not had the chance to try it with my little Z50.
