Hi, I just purchased a D7000 with the Nikkor AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-200mm with VRII. I'm trying to assimilate the options this camera offers. As new user, I'm pleased to join the forum and this is my first post and question.


I want to take some shots of my young grandkids sledding on the small hill (100' run) in our backyard on their next visit. I want to capture their expressions at several points on the run and I'd like to have the camera settings figured out beforehand. I think I should shoot in Continuous-Low mode with Shutter Priority and 9-point, AF-C mode. Is that reasonable or is there a better setup? Can the focal length be changed during continuous mode?

Thanks,
Alan
