Nick, one more question:

What focus mode did you use for ceremony/reception? Servo (which case) Single or Focus? Spot?

Servo. Left it at the default setting since it's nothing complicated and people are moving slowly and steadily. IIRC, I believe I was using single point but in spot focus.

I really like being able to assign the DOF preview button to switch between Single Shot and AI Servo. I used this feature for this shot. Not really a keeper b/c of her expression, but the shot came out sharp and all I had to do was press of the DOS preview button to shoot in AI Servo mode. I still need to get used to this since I am using one finger to focus with the * button, another to switch to AI servo, and yet another to press the shutter button.

+1. Its great being able to switch back and forth from Single shot to AI servo by assigning the DOF preview button.

I have my camera set up opposite of yours..always on AI Servo with the DOF preview button assigned to switch to Single Shot.

That is incredible. Amazing shot proving yet again that it is "not the bow, but the archer".

Trying to get my mitts on a 100-400 as I find my 70-200/2.8 not as practical for my needs.

So while useing these settings what is your prefered metering mode Spot/Partial or??

Oh and thanks your input is great.

I usually leave my cameras in evaluative metering mode. You use these cameras for long enough, you become good as guessing the exposure. :)

Here's the entire sequence of the groomsmen jumping that I posted before, except this was a take 2. AI servo and tracking the groom, who's the guy in the middle @6fps. Not the most challenging situation by any stretch, but I was pretty happy with it.

This one is fabulous, from the groom, to the look of terror on the guy to his right (which I'm confident he'll get heck about for many, many years). Well done!

Nick Thanks a Ton

You have answered my questions. Looks like it locked in servo for you perfectly. Low light and the processional, looks like no flash ??

Did it hit with ease or did you experience any struggles at all. Compared to you know what:lol:, were you able to tell at this point. Looks like you had a fair amount of light and didn't have to get up to 3200 or higher on the processional and exit shots.
