I decided to try to take some photographs of some of the airplanes that fly over a gas station that is near where I live. I live pretty close to Wilmington International Airport so planes are always flying by. Every time I see a plan I am always wishing I had my camera with me. So I drove home this evening, got my D810 with the Nikon 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6 lens, and headed back to the gas station to see what would fly by. It was getting pretty dark. The time was 6:46pm EST. I got to test out the D810's 3D Focus Tracking mode, it works very nice. I did have to switch my focusing from AF-ON only, back to the Shutter Button since I was panning with a moving object. AF-ON (Back Button) focusing works very well for stationary objects in my opinion I always use it.
Nikon D810, Nikon AF VR Zoom-Nikkor 80-400mm f/4.4-5.6D ED lens, Release Mode: CL - Continuous Low Speed, Exposure Mode: JPEG Fine, Aperture: f/5.3, Shutter Speed: 1/500 second, ISO: 1000, and handheld. Posting processing done using Adobe Photoshop CC, Adobe Camera Raw, and Capture One Pro 7.
The reason why I shot in JPEG is because I was shooting in Release Mode: CL which is Continuous Low Speed. CL Mode means when I press and hold the shutter button down, the D810 will continuing taking photographs at a slow pace. I switched to JPEG Fine because the file size is smaller than Raw NEF. I wanted to avoid filling up the buffer on the camera which would have caused me to miss a shot. It's easy to fill up the buffer on a D810 if shooting in RAW, plus after about 4 or 5 continuous Raw shots, I would have to wait for the files to write to the CF card. I was using a Lexar x800 Professional 64GB CF card.
