I am heading for the Galapagos in three weeks, bringing a 80-400 f4.5, 24-70 f.2.8 and a 50mm f.14. For shooting the wildlife mainly birds, I was thinking of the following default settings during the day

shooting mode S probably 1/1000 sec
iso 400
AF-C 9-point
shooting raw
debating putting camera in release mode

what does everyone think, other suggested settings?
