I am going on boat trip to photograph sea birds. Thinking of using my D800 with 80-200 2.8S and my 2X TC 20Ell. Thinking this set up will be easier to use than my 200-400 for all day standing in rough seas.
Considering using M at 1/2000 at 5.6 and auto ISO. Blue sky +1 white sky probably +2. Will shoot RAW to adjust missed exposures.
AFC 3D

Does all of this make sense, or are there better setups to consider?


Thanks,
Roger
