    I went to Castle Combe on Sat to photograph the British Motorcycle Championships, a long hot day from 10.15am until 5.30pm so great weather that did however cause quite a lot of heat haze from the track.

    A good few races but due to some mishaps a fair few periods of no action but I still managed to grab some images with both the Fuji XT2 + 100-400 for the racing.

    Excellent work, as always. Sky-high ISO, I guess required by the maxed-out physical shutter speed of 1/8000... makes sense.

    Thanks Kyle, they were going so fast even round the bends that I wanted to ensure the images were sharp hence the 1/8000. I am happy to shoot at 3200iso as the results are very good and the sensor really delivers.

    The full set can be seen here if anyone is interested - 571 Photography

    Excellent work as usual. I agree about the sensor delivering at high ISO. I shoot up to ISO 8000 regularly.

    My XT1, from day one, has had brightening and color noise at the bottom edge of the sensor at 6400. I can do it in b&w, but with color, it becomes an issue.

    Outstanding work Ian. Just shows how Fujis can handle higher ISO's and I cant wait to try out my 100-400 at RIAT on Saturday.

    Thanks Paul, I hope you have a great time on Sat and I am sure the 100-400 will deliver for you. I am going to an "Off site pay & view" area tomorrow to grab photos of the Friday rehearsals, hopefully there will be some good flying.
