Did a gig last weekend for the wine country polo club, first real day out with the 600mm Monster. C&C Welcome. This monster is hard to focus, damn infinity focus doesn't happen until 350+ft but even then with a smaller apature the camera still finds it necessary to tune the focusing... And it is obvious in a few test shots. I was using different focusing modes all day I have still figured out what focusing mode works best on this D700 for things like this, I was trying Continuous + single point and set the point at where I wanted the action to be and followed the player into the shot to frame it, but if the horse jumped I would focus on the background and sometimes miss the shot. I tried C+Multi but it always selected the wrong items in the frame. I tried 3d Matrix but I have no idea wtf it was focusing on. Most of the time I did Focus on the AF-On single/lock with a single point, would lock focus on horse or player and use the focus lock button on lens to hold it and then frame the shot. Basically focusing this monster is serious work.
