D700 "Sports" settings
Aug 24, 2008

I just got a D700 and will be setting it up as the day goes on. I wanted to ask a few questions. For shooting sports, what setting should I use. Here's what I am thinking... BTW, I am using all f/2.8 lenses.

  • Continuos - Servo AF

  • Ch - Continuos High (for 5 FPS)

  • Dynamic - Area AF

  • I've set the AF-On button to only allow for focusing, not the shutter button as well.

Any other thoughts?

BTW, for some reason, the directions in the D700 manual for getting the Fn button to allow me to switch between Fx and Dx is not working. Anyone know the instructions on how to set that up?

Thanks,

Calfee
