OK I have a few more to post again all shot this past Saturday with the D2X and the 300 2.8 non VR on a mono pod with markins head and wimberly sidekick

I believe the following settings were used
f4- f4.5
CH
AFC
dynamic area focus
less contrast
normal sharpening
hue -3
jpg fine
ev comp as need to hold the highlights
matrix metering
srgb I color space
I use the AF button on back of camera to focus

If you go to www.mmcatee.com and click on sports and then f8baseball it will bring up the gallery click on a picture to view full size and then click on show details and it will show ISO, fstop and shutter speed.

WOW! Thats all I can say. #4 will be a keeper for that kid and will be cherished by him when he grows up. I like #9 and #10 and #12 somehow I find very funny. I especially like the expressions you capture in your pictures and how you try to isolate the individual players and bring out their personalities in your captures. Color, sharpness and exposure is top notch as usual. It is always a pleasure to view your posts Mike!

Very nicely done Mike and thanks for sharing how your camera is set up. The sharpness and depth of color saturation in these images is wonderful. The will print wonderfully as is or as montages. Viewing your images is like going to school.

wow mike.... very very nice..... thank you for posting up your settings!!

I just have one question .... looked through your gallery and noticed your shutter speeds range anywhere from 1/1250 to 1/3000 of a second....... do you usually shot in A mode ? or do you measure your light another way?

im also really intrested in shot number 9 ..... how was that lit ? stadium lights and sunset ?? + how in the world did you keep from blowing highlights on that mike

thanks for the help!

Mike,

Do you always set your Hue setting to -3? If so, would you still use that adjsutment with the D200?

Thanks
