Battery life continious shooting on Df plus action shot capabilities
10 months ago

I'm debating using my Df instead of my D3S for tomorrows photo shoot. I'm covering about 2,000 riders coming in over a four hour spread at speeds of 15 to 20 mph. I'll be shooting at 5.5 fps in 5 frame burst for each rider, shooting anywhere from 7,000 to 10,000 shots. I have three batteries for the Df, but I'll also be using the Df for about 300 to 400 single shots. I have three 64 GB SD cards and four 32 GB cards, so I should be good on memory.

Reason why I'm asking is the buffer is about the same on both the Df & D3S, but the buffer clears faster on the Df. My goal this year is to photograph at least 1,500 plus riders this year. This is in daylight, 10 AM to 2 PM for the finish line. Is the Df up to the task? Thanks in advance.
