  2. Hi , really enjoy your videos. I have a question for you on my
    Nikon D500. When setting the shutter speed after the "bulb" there is a
    setting called "–". Whats is this for? Thanks in advance

  3. Absolutely back button focusing
    I use the AF-ON to single point
    I use the sub selector to group (AF-Area mode + AF-ON)
    So in AF-C I have the best of two world, if I need to get the bird hiding behind an object I get him with AF-ON single point, and if moving then with the group switching by simply moving my thumb to the sub selector and pushing on it I keep tracking and the shutter button is only for shooting.
    I choose Release + Focus to get better keepers at the expense of slower bursts.
    Credit where it belongs:

  4. The auto focus button segment at the end was done too fast and I didn't notice any direction on how to switch to different areas. Totally confused me.

  5. I love my D500!! Hands down one of the best cameras I ever owned in over 50 years of photography. Lens, better selection, low light?? OH yeah. Low ISO WOW.. Get one you will not go wrong.
