Re: 1DX and NFL

Next weekend I get to shoot some college football, and some school football (American Football), here in Ireland. Navy V Notre Dame is a big event, so it should be fun.

It will be my first time shooting American Football.

Last weekend I shoot soccer. I used Case 4 for the AF on the 1D X. It seemed to work best. I used centre point focus, with the 4 surrounding points. This seemed to lock on best to a player's upper chest, and then stay locked on them for most of the time.

Next week will be a challenge for me, but I am looking forward to it.

Please let us know how you get on with your game, with a link to some images.
