Just to let you know, I tried both with the N80 and the F5 to take pictures of bumblebees coming out of the ground using that freeze frame technique we were discussing the other day. I did get a few pictures of bees because the camera kept firing whenever I depressed the shutter. I forgot to put it on single servo. But once I got everything set up, the camera would simply not work. I took the body of the tripod and focused in on a flower and sure enough it worked then. I wonder if it is that the bees are moving to fast for the camera to recognize when they are in focus? Go figure.
