I own a Nikon D90 and am very confused but which focus mode to use in taking action shots.. Some tell me its best to use Dynamic area as Nikon recommends but others say that is an old system and the best is 3 d tracking.. Can someone tell me what the difference is and which one is best for moving objects?

Hello RIman, and welcome to the friendly Camera Labs forum!
To enjoy your stay here please have a look at the house-rules!
As to your question, that's a tough one. Don't forget to switch to C(ontinuous focus). 3d tracking is newest addition to all the dynamic tracking modes - so it should give you an advantage under specific circumstances. But if I remember discussions on other forums correctly 3d tracking works best with colorful objects - but don't bet your house on it :oops:

I find your subjuct has really got to stand out from the back ground for 3D tracking to work. For my wildlife shoots (which would be similar to sports) I use Dynamic Area with in AF-C.
