Recommended books or technical papers on D800
Jul 27, 2012

I am mainly interested in learning about all the auto focus options. I saw where Thom Hogan has an ebook but he is not a sports photographer so not sure if his book would be best source. I probably don't need a whole book, just more information. Each sport I shoot can be a little different as far as focusing objectives. I am guessing for many sports I want the focus to release early as I may go from one player to another player very quickly. It would be great to read how an established sports photographer adjusts the various settings for various sports and situations.

I own the D800 and really love the camera after switching from Canon. I also have a D300S and my guess is focusing options will be very similar for both cameras. I am hoping for a D400, a DX camera with a little more resolution and high frame rate, and again my thinking is focusing will be very similar to D800. So any sources that can help me get a better handle on best focusing settings for sports would be appreciated.

Gary
