Re: Air Show Advice: What autofocus area mode for D200?

Here are the settings that I usually use.

AF-C, Single Point Dynamic Focus, Matrix Metering, Aperture Priority, (unless shooting prop planes and then use Shutter Priority) as low as ISO as you can get away with. Dial in the necessary exposure compensation but I always try to stay on Matrix Metering. It is just too hard to always have the plane in the center metering area to me.

Here are a few from the last show I shot. I try to not post the same shots twice, but sometimes I slip up.
