Which auto focus mode and shutter do you prefer for a higher percentage of keepers ?


Sony A7iii + Mc11/ 35mm f/2 IS/ Sigma 50mm f/1.4 Art/ Sigma 85mm f/1.4 Art/ 135 f/2L/ 70-200 f/4

Well, last year I used one shot mode in manual, but I was using bigger apertures like 4.5-5.6 and high shutter speeds and it gave nice looking shots, but no motion in the tires.
This year I figured I'd use AI servo (still in manual) to keep focus on the cars while shooting lower shutter speeds stopped down, but for whatever reason I had lots of missed focus or blurry shots. This was at the exit of the international horseshoe heading into the kink. I got plenty of keepers but the ratio wasn't super.
Last year and this year both shooting the 1D III with 100-400L V1.

For panning... single shot and prefocus on the spot where I want the car in the frame. Simple.

I'll definitely give that a whirl.
Do you use back button focus with this technique?

Bummed that I cut the back end of the car off in this shot as it's one of my better pans. So I decided to crop it into a close up.

learning to use BBF has been a revelation..one I wished I had learned a long time ago...

I was sitting in the small bleacher section at the exit of the infield before the cars hit the banking. I guess it would be the entrance to turn 6.
