D40 with the 50mm f/1.8 lens for the shots above. They were all taken with a tripod.

Also got a 55-200mm zoom for shots like these:

£199.99 D40 here: http://www.buyacamera.co.uk/xsearch.asp?RecId=NIKCA722&pt=f

I've no idea how reputable/good they are, nor what the postage costs would be. You can get one for £215 from Amazon, if you'd prefer a household name http://www.amazon.co.uk/Nikon-D40-Digital-SLR-Camera/dp/B000KIX65S/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1229087578&sr=8-1

The D40 is a good camera, but it does have its limitations. 18 months after getting mine, I'm replacing it with a D300.

Regarding:


The guys on the boat behind ours had an 80ft twin mast yacht.

They secured the halyard (a rope that goes from the deck of the boat to the top of the mast & back again) to the top of the mast, attached a handle to the end of it & then tied another rope to the halyard/handle & tied the other end to the tender (the small boat for going to & from shore). You started in the water next to the yacht, hanging on to the handle in the middle of this now extended rope. The tender than sped away & catapulted you into the air. In the shot above, the guy is falling downward, although looks like he's jumping over the tug in the background.

What would you say are the limitations you've come across? My D40 is my first decent camera and I'm still learning.

What would you say are the limitations you've come across? My D40 is my first decent camera and I'm still learning.

The lack of an internal motor means you can't autofocus with primes, only 6MP (pain in the arse if you're cropping or want to print BIG), only 3 autofocus points, only 3fps, no LCD status on the top and poor auto white balance under bulb light. You also have to navigate the menu to change white balance, metering & iso, as opposed to having hard buttons on the outside.

Don't get me wrong, its a fantastic entry-level camera, it takes really good quality photos & the kit lens that it comes with is on a par with the £800 17-55mm f/2.8 (although only to f/3.5). BUT, the little things start to niggle eventually, hence I'm upgrading.

Cheers. I can see they're things that, like you say, will become issues the more I use it. What does a D300 go for nowadays?

It's a recent replacement for the D200 & a top-end amateur/semi-pro camera, so quite expensive. They're around £900 at the moment. Hopefully I won't need to upgrade again though!

That's an amazing photo!

It looks as though you've managed to get the focus on an angle as opposed to just depth (if you can see what I mean?!). How is that? Or is it just that the bridge projects forwards into focus?

Quality photo Ronnie!

How does the whole tilt shift thing work in practice? Someone showed me a clip the other day of a monster truck derby filmed tilt shift in time lapse, fecking crazy, looked like a micro machine race. Never heard of the technique before seeing that...

For the people asking about the tilt shift photo, I'm afraid its photoshop trickery (you can buy tilt-shift lenses, but they are mega-bucks). By narrowing the depth of field on a landscape shot, it tricks the eye into thinking you're looking at a minature as a narrow DoF can only be acheived in close-up with a normal lens.

For much better examples see http://www.flickr.com/groups/tilt-shift-fakes/pool/

 Bad Teeth

AF-S refers to the type of autofocus
18-55 is the focal range
DX II implies its a digital format lens build specifically for a digital sensor and wouldn't work on a film camera
VR is Vibration Reduction & helps reduce blurring from camera shake
