D600 + Nikkor 70-300VR + Football Action
Oct 28, 2012

I had a chance to use the D600 today to take some action shots during a 7th grade football game. I used my D600 and Nikkor 70-300VR @ISO3200 to record the action. Unfortunately for the sequence of photos shown below, I had set my aperture to f11 rather than f5.6 or f8. Nice for extra depth of field, but less so for maximum shutter speed or being able to lower my ISO. I used dynamic 9-point AF-C and it worked quite well. Almost all of the shots were in focus and there was little trouble tracking the players. It was rainy and mid-afternoon. The light was fairly low and very even making it easy to retain detail in the black and white uniforms. Overall, a thumbs up for D600, although I realize I need to work on my composition skills when the subject is moving.
