I installed the FT1 firmware upgrade that allows AF-C in my Nikon 1 V2 and went to test it. I went to Wheeler Dam on the Tennessee River where there were lots of flying birds. There were Great Egrets, Great Blue Herons and this smaller Black-crowned Night Heron. I chose to photograph the Night Heron because it is faster and smaller. The birds were way out so these photos are cropped resulting is some noise. I turned off the preview and shot at 15 fps.

Nikon 200-400 mm

Nikon 600 mm. Finding the birds was a challenge with the narrow field of view.
