"Last night I photographed the NC HS 3A championship football game and it was snowing.  I shot continuous focus, CH, Boost with the 100-400 and my keeper rate was significantly improved over previous outings. Most OOF results were my fault not the camera’s. I was pleased that the snow didn’t negatively affect anything. It was my first time shooting a game while snowing."

Hi Ron…could you add more info about your football game photo shoot…could you add…

Did you use the grip, at 11 FPS Mechanical shutter?
Did you use an AF-C Custom setting?
Single Point AF?
Zone AF…Size…etc?

Thanks
Dave

Sure thing, Dave.

- definitely used the battery grip (2 grip batteries exhausted at the end of the game with ~50% left on the in-body battery)
- AF-C Set 2
- AF single point enlarged 4 steps
- did NOT use Zone AF
- AF mode "All"
- mechanical shutter - CH High Speed Burst 11 fps
- focus check ON
- used Auto ISO with max of 12,800 and minimum shutter speed of 640
- shot from a monopod
- outside temps low 30s F (not sure if that affects battery life much)

Depending on how you shoot some of these settings may not fit your style.

If you'd like to see the results here's the link:

Hope this helps!

Thanks Ron...

I am just about all the same as you but with Zone AF...so I will work on my Single AF points with CH in the future and learn when it is best to use that setting.

Lot's to learn.

Dave, with luck we never stop learning.  Just when we think we've got it all figured out we get a new firmware release to test.   ;D

New firmware coming, as usual they claim better autofocus but I'm interested more in the focus bracketing feature. Some other changes too.
