    I am going to shoot a company triathlon race next weekend. I was wondering if I purchase the battery grip which batteries do I have to use to get 8fps? Also what camera settings do you guys recommend for action coming towards you. I will be shooting a bike race, swimming, and 3 mile run.

    Thanks to everyone in advance.

    EL4As or AAs will give ya 8fps. As for the tracking....not my forte, sorry :smile:

    I have the D700 and battery grip. I use the EL4 and appear to get the 8fps.
    When I shoot action I put it on continuous high and change the tracking to continuous as well as let the camera choose the focus points.
