I went on a pelagic birding trip on the weekend and racked up so many lifers, but I was quite annoyed when I got back home and realized many of my moving bird shots were OOF. Taking shots in a pitching boat was hard enough, but it turned out that I had switched my camera sometime last week from AI servo to one shot focus. so here I was on the boat, happily holding the BB focus down and tracking birds, expecting the camera to be adjusting focus when it really wasn't. Only later when I was puzzling over why my shots weren't coming out as sharp as I had expected did I realize this.
Damn, damn.... lesson learnt! I will spend an extra 2 minutes every time ensuring that nothing boneheaded has been set up on the camera.
Anyone else experience something like this, when a great photo opportunity has been affected by such boneheadedness?
