Welcome to F1 POWERBOAT PHOTOS by Martin Hryzak!

mh-300ertele.jpg (52354 bytes)Hello! This pages are dedicated to F1 Powerboats. A good friend of mine, Roman Chudo, introduced me to this sport some years ago in Vienna. Starting from this moment I was fascinated by the speed and the people racing with 100+ MPH on water.

One of my favorite free time activities has always been photography. I got my first camera as a present for good school results back in 1980. My father taught me how to work with the camera (Minolta XG-1, if someone can remember) and from this moment I really enjoyed taking pictures. Everywhere I travel, the camera is always with me.

After some years with Minolta I decided to switch my equipment to CANON because of the much better reliability of this cameras and lenses. Today I use different CANON EOS bodies and  lenses from 17mm to 400mm, power booster and flash light by CANON, too. Take a look at the picture to find out more (not updated for a while....).My equipment

Today all pictures are shot digital - a CANON EOS D30 and a KODAK DCS520 (EOS-1n digital) are my favorite camera bodies which I use most. Together with my 2.8/300mm L lens this makes a fantastic combination for sports photography. You will be able to read more about my equipment on an extra web page - coming soon.

NEW UPDATE (20.08.2002): Pictures from Stralsund (Germany) are online.
                                                Budapest pictures reduced to 32 because of limited web space. 

PREVIOUS UPDATE (02.07.2002): Pictures from the race in Budapest are now online!
