#13. "RE: D7100 Action Shots"
In response to In response to 10


St Petersburg, RU
          

A refusal or spill develop slower with amateur jumping and the camera has a fast response time so compared to many other sports single shot is quite feasible and often preferred since once launched, the trajectory is pretty much controlled by physics instead of actions by the horse or rider.
The problem with burst shooting is that only the first shot is not a matter of luck but the photographer gets into the habit of starting the burst before expected peak action as to "be sure not to miss the later frame that does have peak action". That means all frames are a matter of luck and none of the frames are likely to be in as good of focus as the first one.
One click is not like the old days where a new film frame had to be moved into position manually. A D7000/7100 can take the next frame just as fast or faster than in burst mode with a shutter response time of around 60ms. You would still have time to get follow on shots in single frame mode.
Maybe practice with the focus on anticipating position based on starting point, speed and mass. We humans are really good at that, when someone throws a ball to you, it is closing quickly, straight on, so part of the path is blocked visually by the ball itself yet you are probably quite good at placing your mit at an anticipated termination spot of the trajectory that you instantly calculated by seeing only the arm movement and rate, and the release point. A horse which is moving slower, across the scene with more mass so spin, wind and other factor are not needed to be accounted for, should be a piece of cake for you considering how well you predict paths of baseballs.
Also practice not giving up on the path until you are sure no more desirable shots are going to develop. Keep your trigger finger and eye in place continuously during the "play", being ready to trigger if something new develops. Watch a lot of photographers, even pros, how they get out of position with eye and hand immediately after the shot is taken. That prevents them from getting any but lucky second or third shots.
