SS: 1/500 or 1/640
Dynamic 9 or 21 point
Center weighted Metering - 15mm
ISO I either set based on lighting (using histogram) or set to Auto ISO
WB: Auto for Football, Pre-Set for BBall
Continuous High
Image Quality: RAW
Active D-Lighting: Normal
AF-C: Focus (Back Button focuser)
Focus Tracking: Off
AF Activation: AF Only
# of focus points: 11

Lenses 70-200/2.8 for football 85/1.8 or 50/1.5 for bball
