Now I know I am in the minority using my h2 for sport, but it is not too bad with the f4 210mm lens, it focusses pretty fast and the Continuous focus mode is accurate and sharp (mostly). I get the occasional very arty looking blur, but hey, that happened with the Canon too. I use Aperture priority set at 1/800 (my fastest speed) and it usually gives me a good result. It's a heavy combination but I mount the H2 direct to my monopod and just swivel the whole shebang!

I went down to Snapper Rocks last Saturday (25/02/2011) before the Quiksilver & Roxy Pros start to get a few shots of the folk practising. There were some seriously big waves and the break and beach look good for the competition. (all H2/P20/210mmf4)

And I just liked the shape of this wave - yes, there is a surfer in there!

Then I moved on down to Duranbah where the water really was this glorious blue green and it was so beautiful with some big waves coming through from time to time.

I liked this one for the perfect shape and carved look of the wave.
