Peak of Action
A sharp subject, the #1 ingredient in a successful photograph. There are a whole lot of techniques that when used in concert can help you achieve this goal. Peak of Action is just one of them. It was THE technique back in the day of manual focus but with AF, many don’t know about this simple tool in capturing a sharp image.
The stills in this video weren’t taken during the video filming, the D3s just can’t do that. You can stop video capture for still capture and that works great but the video won’t start again until the buffer is done emptying all the stills. But I think you’ll get the idea better this way then by just a verbal description.
