Best D200 AF settings for a model shoot

Hi guys,

I've always used single AF point, Single Servo AF Priority, with every kind of subjects but today I've decided I'd give it a try and go deeper into the complexity of the D200's AF system; particularly for modeling sessions, where I would be moving slightly around the model and/or the model would mostly be static.

I am talking about custom settings a1-a6. What settings work best for you guys, that maximize the number of keepers in terms of AF?

A simple reminder:
a1 - AF-C mode priority
a2 - AF-S mode priority
a3 - Focus area frame (7 or 11)
a4 - Group Dynamice AF
a5 - Lock-On delay
a6 - AF Activation

I will also post this to the lighting forum.

Thank you in advance!

Nuno B.
