New to the D5000, wondering if anyone would like to share the settings they used for the best results with continuous mode action photography in sunlight. Thanks!! Ken

Hi Ken,

Welcome to Nikonians!
Which lens or lenses will you be using?
The Equipment tab in your User Profile is blank.
Please fill in your User Profile when you get a few minutes, It will help us answer your questions better. Thanks in advance!
Use AF-C Continuous AF mode.
If you can easily track your subject use a single AF point.
If you can track your subject but have trouble using a single AF point use Dynamic Area AF.
Depending on your subject you could try using Aperture (A) priority exposure mode with the Aperture wide open (smallest f/#).
Adjust the ISO to maitain a shutter speed of 1/500th sec. or faster if possible.
Remember to allow enough time for the AF system to lock on to your subject before you release the shutter.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty

Thanks for replying - updated the profile - just got the camera, have gone through the manual, going fishing in Mexico next week and will be trying to get action shots of fish breaching. In continuous mode, I think I need to set the quality to jpeg normal as to not jam the buffer - shutter pri at 500+ auto iso -not sure about AF mode or metering ? I was thinking about shooting birds flying to experiment - any advice welcome !

Hi Ken,

Unless you plan on sustained shooting, You might want to use jpeg Fine Large as you can never get the IQ back after the fact. I will bet the buffer is larger than you think.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty
