    I want to know what would be the best setting on my Nikon D200 for taking a picture of a car in motion. I will be in the car next to it at about the same speed and want to know how or what would be the best way to do this. Im a Newbi with a hand me down D200 from a friend. Also how do you take 2-10 pics in one shot. Im very new to this so please excuse my expertise in photo talk.

    Thank you ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!:p

    High shutter speed (1/250+) to freeze the action unless you want a bit of blur from the car in which case you'll want a slower shutter speed (1/80-1/125). I use canon, so I cant really help you out with settings other than that, sorry :)

    To get the wheels spinning yet the car in focus, you will want a slow shutter speed, maybe 1/250 just play around BUT you must track the car for it to stay in focus, otherwise everything will be blurred

    you press and hold the button. It takes shots until you let go of the shutter button. Make sure you have it set to multiple exposures in drive mode (? whats the nikon equivalent?)

    On the left side top of your d200 there is a dial with some letters on it. Select CH. That will fire 4fpr as long as you hold assuming you are in Jpeg and you have a decent card.
