I'm a newbie here and would appreciate some advice. I've become more interested in photography in the last 3 months or so, recently bought a 40D with a 18-200 IS lens.
A lot of my photography in the past was with an Olympus E500, but I felt that the choice of camera and lens held back some of the action photographs that I took (plus it didn't have the 6 frames per second ability).
There's a meeting on this Sunday where I'm going to use shutter priority with the following settings (primarily).
AI servo - to track the action
Centre weighted metering
Auto focus will be the centre spot.
I'd really appreciate some feedback, as I've seen some great action photo's here, and I'd like to try and begin to emulate them.
