    Very hard to get a good shot of this little guy running.

    AF-C Focusing Mode

    Erad,

    Are you familiar with the AF-C continuous focusing mode of the camera? When this mode is used in concert with the rapid shutter or continuous advance (□□□) drive mode, while you hold down the shutter release --> every time the moving subject hits the focusing "spot," the camera instantly adjusts and refocuses the lens on the subject and trips the shutter. I have used it on jet aircraft, roaring in or away from me at hundreds of miles per hour, so your pup should present less of a challenge at 15mph.

    I shot this one with a manually-focused Rokinon 85mm @ f/1.4... so it can be done without the fancy-schmancy AF-C/Cont. Adv combination. You just have to be queued up on your center of focus and... pop that shutter.

    "Incoming!"


    Give it a try.

    lol, an aircraft is a piece of cake to lock onto compared to a little psycho pup darting around you head on.

    Here is an American Coot I took the other day. These birds are very shy when it comes to getting there picture taken. Every time I stop to get a shot they swim off. This time the stood close for a few shots.

    Decided to give refraction images a try. I used a few plants I had in the house.

    Is it just my imagination... once again...

    running away with me?

    Are we doing better at this? My word, good job, folks.

    It is quite clear, the right gear... right here... allows the magic to appear. Most excellent!
