Hi

Was just wondering for those fast action sports or track and field, where photographers are not allowed near, they place their cameras on the ground or finishing line or side , but how does the camera knows when to shot ?

I have heard of focus lock - but one needs to hold or press shot button to trigger this.

How's this done ?

You can do a lot with remote triggering these days. Often it's best to preset the exposure and focus, so the only thing you're doing is firing the shutter from afar. You can even use various tricks to get the sports people to trigger the action as they pass a certain point...
