Testing the Nikon D3s focus tracking at 9fps

Am testing out the new D3s over the weekend thanks to Howard at Camera Electronic, mostly to check the increased high ISO sensitivity but also to check the reportedly increased AF speed. Here’s a quick focus test with Rosco as the subject. It’s partially to show the AF tracking and partially to have a laugh at the effect of gravity on a boxer’s face.

Lens was the Nikon 70-200 2.8 VR I, light was dull overcast. All shot at ISO 3200, 2.8 and speed was 1/1000 on almost all, shot at 9 FPS. It tracked well but missed a couple slightly. Maybe due to Rosco’s extra boost of speed when he found out Teddy might be in trouble.
