CameraJabber gave some insights on how to correctlys etup the Nikon Z7 to shoot sports. That’s the short summary:
- Use manual or shutter priority mode
- Use the Auto ISO option
- Shoot in AF-C mode
- If in doubt use Wide-area AF (S) mode
- Shoot in Continuous High mode
- Check the Autofocus customisation options and adjust to suit the sport and shooting situation
The newly released DNG Converter 11.0 now fully supports Nikon Z camera files.
I enjoyed shooting with the P1000, despite what you give up in order to have that lens. Would I actually buy one? Given how rarely I shot above 1000mm equiv. I’d personally select Sony’s similarly priced Cyber-shot RX10 III, which tops out at 600mm but has a much larger sensor and brighter lens to give stellar photo and video quality. That shouldn’t take away from the fact that the P1000 is a fun camera to shoot with, even if it’s just for the adventure of finding a subject to take full advantage of that ‘absurd’ lens.
