Imperfect light with the sun behind the coaster car, but I wanted to test the 8080 in freezing very fast action. Half depressed to pre focus before car came past, and then with one shot got this of the front of the carriage and first rows. Action shots are possible with the camera even for amateurs like me - you just have to prepare a little.

External flash?

I'm wondering if an external flash would have helped.
