Nice. I haven’t tried 1/3200; mostly i stay at 1/2000 or 1/2500 for BIF. What does your ISO get up to? And which AF focus mode for this guy?

BTW, shooting from the car seems a pretty comfy way to go. Is the Sacramento WR for driving only, or were you just making a quick cruise through?

Hi. Probably could have used a slower shutter speed but for whatever reason I was at 1/3200. I generally use continuous and a choice of fewer AF points, I think it's nine. Sac WLR is drive only for most of the road but there are pull-outs for parking and getting out at a couple of points.
