Re: Shooting sports with 7100 and 70-200 VRII (7 pics)

Wasswhat, I'm impressed with the focus of the pictures.  Seems like the camera nailed it.  What focus mode did you use?

I take sports pictures of my kids while playing sports with my 5100, and sometimes focus is a  problem.  If I use auto area focus, sometimes the camera gets the wrong object, and my intended subject is out of focus. Spot focus works ok, but if it's fast action, you can miss with that.

Seems there is probably a better mode I have not figured out.  Thanks.
