|Quoting AlexC (Thread starter):|
Would anybody still using a D300 or D300s care to share with me what settings they are using in these circumstances?
I don't have a D300, but I use Nikon.
Are you shooting in AF
-C or AF
-S mode? I generally find the only time I have focus issues is if I've inadvertantly left the camera in AF
-S mode and I don't hear the focus beep when I'm tracking a moving plane. I typically use AF
-C most of the time and only revert to AF
-S when shooting in a museum or static planes.
Most of the time I use single-point AF
. Dynamic area is useful if you're chasing a small, fast plane across the sky with a big lens (e.g. at an air show), otherwise you know exactly what you're focusing with single-point AF
