    Focus Tracking - a different approach

    Hi There
    I'm just stopping resting a bit to report this.

    Well - We all know that there are issues with the focusing.
    I thought I'd just try something different, so, I set the camera on the auto (green) focus mode (on the focus select switch). Then as it was a bit of a dreek day I set the mode to TAV (shutter priority), put auto ISO on to Fast, then started spinning around trying to keep up with Caspar and a Terrier.

    Here are some results:









    This one is a bit different - similar setup (but in P mode), I was tracking the Sandling, and the Gull got in the way:



    The hit rate was really pretty high - not suggesting it's any competitor for a D3s or anything, just that having accepted that I'm keeping the camera, I'm now working on how to make things work (rather than making them not work).

    Just this guy you know

    Great shots Jono. You really froze the romping dog action nicely. That little terrier has big teeth.

    HI Carl - truth is the camera froze it - really all auto. AS for the terrier - I don't think he was terribly amused - but he really couldn't catch the sheepdog!

    Great shots Jono! Looks like your dog and the terrier were having a romping good time of it. I think that's a wheaten colored Cairn Terrier.....they are feisty little dogs, for sure!

    Here's my Bonnie.....poised for action.
