Re: D300 Focus Observations Post Firmware 1.1

Hi Jim,

very interesting post. I did some BIF photography last Monday.

I used the D300+80-400mm Vr. I can confirm your comment about the fact that the AF is not as good when the bird is in the air. I got some keeper, but in some situation, acquisition was not fast enough to get what I wanted.

Also, I mostly use 21 points, but last Monday I did some experimentation with 51 points and quickly realised that 21 points was doing better.

As a side note, I used Auto ISO for the first time and I can tell you that from now, I'll always use it for BIF !

Thanks for the interesting post !

Daniel
