    Thanks for the comments

    I'm finding the larger/heavier the camera, the easier it is to pan. I've still go some ways to go though.

    I was hoping to practice more tonight, but it got too cold and I forgot a jacket.

    I have one already. The grip+100-400 lense is alot easier for me than no grip and the kit lense though.

    I guess the heavier weight gives more of a smooth swing to it? I haven't really thought about it myself.

    On the down side, my left wrist has been aching quite a bit since the non-stop shooting with the 100-400. I'll have to see if Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is on my insurance

    I'm sure after a few weeks I'll have buldging wrist muscles....

    Nah, this is good I think, the weight isn't enough to be a bother, at least until 6 hours has past.

    I probably should, but that would slow down my quick escape!*

    *If needed..

    Here's my first half decent pan shot, too bad it's not very clean.

    It could have been a great shot .. If you were a knot faster shutting it, You would've nailed it perfect !

    I still like the camera, and think it's quite good. I still use it for various things, running around with friends, parties, and any situation where there's lots of alcohol or its super dirty.

    Depends on how muchg pay is involved! j/k.

    I was at the Fergus Truckshow last summer, and they have tractor pulls and other such races. A few times I had to clean the camera entirely, it was covered in a fine brown dust all over the body.

    Or just get a couple of those plastic bags you get from a grocery store to put your vegitables in. Much cheaper!
