Worked fantastic. Wish the 5D III had this feature. Thanks for the great tip.
The 1D4 is a great camera that has many advanced features that are not obvious from the spec sheet. Until you start shooting with one the gap between a 1 series and the rest is not obvious that difference is very significant.
Other features worth exploring is the constant AF and setting the low speed continuous to 6fps (or whatever suits you). I find I get more keepers this way - but I am shooting slower, more predictable animals.
I have a ton of games I can practice this with, so yes, I plan on getting creative
It's amazing how much detail and color saturation this camera has, even despite the bad press about the APS-H sensor it received (16mp too). I don't see a difference. I cropped quite a ways and with a bit of NR, looked just as smooth as the 5D Mk III.
