Thank you :)



It is a Nikon d4 dslr camera. But the camera is not so important it is the lens:)
For these I used the Nikkor 200-400 f4
How much for the lens?

I've been entertaining the idea of taking a class on DSLR's, I get pretty good pics with my regular digital cam but the ones like yours are fabulous. My beagle is a huge swimmer too and I'd love to get some nicer action shots!! I love photography, I have just been so intimidated by the prices and varieties of lenses.

It is difficult to choose the right lens. It depends on your needs. http://http://www.photozone.de

Maybe this site can help you. For action shots of your dog you need a very fast shutters speed. For my pictures I used 1/1600 or faster.
The distance between you and your dog is also important Most of the time you will need 200mm or more. What camera do you use ?

That Nikon should do the job. It's lag time ( time between pressing the shutter and the camera makes the picture) and over 700 mm tele.

Your settings are important. I would say use Matrix metering, Subject tracking focus, iso as low as possible (max 400) Continuous Shooting mode and as program; sport. Best you can wait for a sunny day. You shutter speed is important. It should be 1/1000 of faster :) The link Welcome to Photozone!

I do get decent pictures but it seems like luck. Usually not sure what is the best setting to put it on. I will mess with it more :) Thank you for the link and info! Hope to see more pics from you soon.
