I just reviewed this tutorial
and I would like to confirm that for birds in flight it seems that my best choice is to set my camera to continuous auto focus (dynamic area). With this setting I will be able to take more shots, but the risk is that I will likely have several shots that are not in focus.
ie; versus using automatic auto-focus and focusing on getting one shot (in focus) at a time.
Also in my camera a Nikon D80 I have....
Also in my camera focus settings....
Center AF area
Is the wide area for landscapes?
I'm finding the wide area/zone camera setting confusing, because I thought greater depth of field was just set using a smaller aperture?
What is the wide area/wide zone focus setting for? to optimize landscape shots?
