Yeah okay.... can is ay this WRONG. I would say hard todo but actually its possible that yor wrong. See if taken pictures with tripods mounted in cars before. The vehicles vibrations usually are better dampened by your hand. Especially engine and road, and misaligned wheel vibrations at 100 mph.

It would have been sharper has i had ISO 3200

Actually quite easy to use a tripod in a car and frankly agree with peecee, well maybe not that you should have used a tripod but the observation that it needed to be sharper is a good one, you don´t want constructive critizism?

I dont mind the criticism, but the front wheel is toe'd out about 6 degrees on the right side. (will fix on Wednesday when i get the tires replaced) The truck was shaking very hard otherwise i would have went ahead and pegged the speedo.

But take a 66 austin healey convertible with its loud and high vibration producing engine at 80 mph, sideways down an exit ramp. The tresulting vibrations did not please the camera at all.

The picture was taken at ISO 400 1/20 sec. ISO 1600 at 1/60 a sec would have produced a much clearer shot. Mind you my Cavalier at 108 MPH wouldnt produce a clear shot if you tried..... my eyes couldnt read the speeedo in that car at that speed lol.

I would have loved a clearer shot and i wasnt trying to be a jackass maybe it soudned that way. Id reattempt this shot with a better camera, better alignment and at over 120 mph.... but the 5 points i got after taking this shot kinda make me not want to?

Good to know that someone is on the roads of Maryland with me, driving over 100MPH and taking pictures of the dash. I feel really safe now.

I got NINE speeding tickets before I was your age... yes, nine. Then I learned to drive like a sane person and now haven't had a ticket in over 10 years. Be careful out there! (spoken like someone's mother). :)

You're surprised?

Know what we call people who use turn signals in Florida? TOURISTS! I swear the natives don't use them! Its absolutely frightening.

It's not safe to drive this fast when your car is low on washer fluid. :)
