    Yes, this captures DIF, but also the focus these people have on their dogs.

    They're all great, but that fourth one is a masterpiece.

    Thank you all.
    The lens I was using to shoot the event was 100-300 mk2.

  9. Great shots, I like how all of the dogs are herding dogs. Very agile dogs.

    Spec-flippin'-tacular! I just love these shots . . . the dog stretching for the disk . . . the open mouth . . . if you were a lawyer making a case for "the decisive moment," you could turn to the jury and say: "The defense calls no further witnesses."

    I don't know about the rest of the denizens here at MU-43, but I would be well pleased to have gotten even one of those shots, let along a whole series of them.

    Now, how did you do it? What were your basic settings? I presume you were using some sort of continuous exposure mode . . .

    Did you zone focus?

    Did you use the autofocus? If so, did you use a single AF spot (what size?) or several of them? And what, exactly, were you focusing on . . . the dog, the disk, the person????

    C'mon, inquiring minds want to know!:biggrin:

    Cheers, Jock
