Nah I reckon it's fair enough, it means you don't spend ages waiting for pics to load, and lazy buggers like me can't thrash their bandwidth with hotlinking such as above. I think anyone semi-serious about showing their pics off will open an account on a dedicated site.

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:

Evs - you can get a D40 with kit lens for under £200 now. Shop around squire.

£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.

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.

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/

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

took this in the egyptian desert the other day, unsure whether to crop it (chop the bottom off)  Undecided

only just seen this post weez; a general (i stress general - its not always the case) rule for good composition in photography is the rule of thirds. A landscape with the horizon dead centre is often not as pleasing as one with the horizon on one of the thirds; either two thirds sky, one third land or two thirds land one third sky. If you wanted to apply that to this photo, then you could crop the bottom a little. I'd also recommend increasing the contrast to darken the shadows & boosting the colour a little.

maybe something like this (although could prob do with a bit more taking off the bottom).


As if to demonstrate the point, Sam's photo doesn't adhere to thirds, but is excellently composed. the contrast between the sky/stone/grass is great.

thanks ronnie, that's good advice.
when i posted that pic on here it was loads lighter than it appeared on the camera and iphoto library. obviously to do with it being enlarged. i don't like the fact you can see the 'legs' and agree that there's too much of both bottom and top.
as it happens, a week or so after posting that i applied it to my desktop, which automatically darkened and intensified the colours. it also chopped loads out and the image looked loads better.
i don't have photoshop or any photo tweaking programme since my computer had a near death experience a while back, so i couldn't change what i disliked about the pic once it was up on here

Different exposures from 1 RAW. Those were -1, 0, & +1 I think. Photomatix does a load of the work and then you make little adjustments.

That sunset shot I did, I just blended three differently processed exposures myself, but these are more 'proper' HDR.

I think Joe's got a feature that pulls out a single colour on his camera.

I've done it on big blocks of colour in Photoshop using layers and painting sections out (below) but fiddly bits are trickier. Zaitoichi's the man to speak to I reckon.

I've got a lush setting called "colour accent."

pick out a colour using a target and it will isolate it along with very similar colours. It also has a sensitivity setting which is quite useful for picking out weaker colours.  Smiley

Shame you can't use it in conjunction with macro mode but it's still a brilliant setting.  Smiley

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

nope. I'll keep it as a spare/give it to hooty when I eventually get round to replacing it. The adverse exchange rate has resulted in nikons going up in price by about 20% & I've not bought the D300 yet.

Have you looked at the D90? I've read a couple of reviews that have said that due to it being the newer camera it's preferable over the D300 and a lot cheaper too. Here's one of the reviews.

I plan on replacing my stolen D40 with one as soon as I've got the cash.

I plan on replacing my stolen D40 with one as soon as I've got the cash.

I'm not a great fan of ken rockwell's opinion, but I have been considering it as there's a £300 difference now.

The main differences are FPS (4.5 vs 6-8), focus points (11 vs 51) & weatherproofing/build quality as the sensors are pretty much identical (the D300 has slightly more pixels) . Obviously the D90 has video capabilities, but that's of no interest to me. The D300 will meter (after adding lens profiles to the camera) with my prime lenses, which would save me the £150 of buying a digital light meter and it has more single function buttons on the exterior (I am sick of navigating the D40's menu to change iso/shooting mode/metering mode!), but is that worth £300? I could get the D90 & the sigma 10-20 for the price of a D300.

I could get the D90 & the sigma 10-20 for the price of a D300.

What prices have you seen the D90 and D300 for? I guess £300 isn't too bad it if you can afford it, but for those main differences, for me it's a lot. I'm not going to use those extra frames per second with the types of shots I take; I've read a little about the focus points and as they're just mid points of the 11 anyway I think it's not too necessary; and most DSLRs are as weatherproof as you need them unless you plan on shooting in a storm. The build quality is a bonus but for the sake of £300 you can make sure you don't knock it about too much.

Are those specific lenses that the D300 will meter with and the D90 wouldn't? What's the score there?

Treated myself to a D200 and Sigma 10-20mm  Cheesy

how are you finding the D200, Ronnie? What about the Sigma? I'm after one of those once I get my D90.

The D200 is awesome. more megapixels, auto-focus & metering with my primes, 11 focus points, buttons on the outside for every function I use, ISO100, magnesium alloy body & a whole host of stuff I've not had chance to look at yet. Couldn't justify the price of a D300 and thought & read a lot about D200 vs D90. Decided that AI lens metering, ISO100, rugged construction & lower price were more important than superior sensor & less noise at high ISO (I rarely use >400).

And the low price meant I could afford to get the Sigma. Which is also awesome. Very sharp, silent & quick motor & quite amazing coverage at 10mm. My only (minor) gripes would be the size of the thing - it was difficult to fit in my bag - and the 77mm filter attachment means filters are expensive (£40 UV & £70 polariser Shocked ). It just prompted me to get a cokin system rather than using the screw-on ones.

Just need a new tripod & head and I'm pretty much sorted for kit. except maybe the 17-55 f/2.8... Roll Eyes

£280 off ebay (grip was a little dirty, but the optics are mint). They're £400 brand-new now (from £330 18 months ago). Damn this weak pound!

Treated myself to a D200 and Sigma 10-20mm  Cheesy

how are you finding the D200, Ronnie? What about the Sigma? I'm after one of those once I get my D90.

The D200 is awesome. more megapixels, auto-focus & metering with my primes, 11 focus points, buttons on the outside for every function I use, ISO100, magnesium alloy body & a whole host of stuff I've not had chance to look at yet. Couldn't justify the price of a D300 and thought & read a lot about D200 vs D90. Decided that AI lens metering, ISO100, rugged construction & lower price were more important than superior sensor & less noise at high ISO (I rarely use >400).

And the low price meant I could afford to get the Sigma. Which is also awesome. Very sharp, silent & quick motor & quite amazing coverage at 10mm. My only (minor) gripes would be the size of the thing - it was difficult to fit in my bag - and the 77mm filter attachment means filters are expensive (£40 UV & £70 polariser Shocked ). It just prompted me to get a cokin system rather than using the screw-on ones.

Just need a new tripod & head and I'm pretty much sorted for kit. except maybe the 17-55 f/2.8... Roll Eyes

Good stuff! how much did you get the Sigma for by the way? The range in prices I've seen seems massive.

£280 off ebay (grip was a little dirty, but the optics are mint). They're £400 brand-new now (from £330 18 months ago). Damn this weak pound!

Importing from HK is cheaper at face value, but if you get caught by customs import tax & VAT adds another 30%.

For some reason I thought I'd seen them for around the £200 mark.  Sad

Also, what's your knowledge on Tamron lenses. Worth considering or not at all? I've seen some nice looking D90 packages on ebay with a lot of equipment thrown in and one comes with a Tamron 28-80, a Tamron 75-300 and a Nikon 50mm.

Never used a Tamron lens, but the only one I've ever seen recommended was the 28-75mm f/2.8. I get the impression they're a bit shit. However, the nikon 50mm (f/1.8 I assume, as the f/1.4 is £300) is a great lens. Sharpest lens I've ever used, great bokeh and under £100.

That's what I figured. It was the 50 that made me look twice to be honest. There's another kit with Nikons instead of the Tamrons, but it takes the kit up to £850 from £790. Probably worth it but not sure I'll have that sort of cash.

edit: I think THIS is the best value really, and I can pick up a 50 later

I'll have some shots from my college course to stick up once I've developed and printed them, and scanned them. Still not replaced my digi camera yet  Sad

was playing around using my flashgun as a slave at a wedding recently & got some really interesting results. Something I need to explore more methinks. Were you using the on-board flash as master or have you got a couple of guns?

I've tried to follow some of the threads in the strobist.com group on flickr to learn how to get better, but it gets confusing very quickly.

oh and a pic from glasto at the weekend

Check out a guy called Martin Parr. He made colour photography with flash, mainly ring flash, a new genre within the documentary field of photography. His stuff is pretty satirical and got lot of flack becuase it didn't fit into the sympathetic ideal that most documentary stuff had stuck to before. It looks old school now but his take on the british culture is really interesting.

http://www.martinparr.com/index1.html

None of his good stuff is on the site but have a search for his "Last Resort" or "Cost of Living" projects.

Do you still shoot film? I found a 1968 Chinon CS with 50mm f1.7 & 135mm f2.8 in the cupboard the other day that I'd forgotten about (a friend gave it to me years ago).
Apparently the bokeh with the fifty is pretty awesome so might have a play around with it this weekend. And there's something exciting about not knowing what your photos are like until the film is developed.

Yes, I do. I have a Canon EOS 300X. I love her! But she has no battery power at the moment, and I have no funds to develop the tupperware box full of films in the fridge! When I get my films developed, I always get them scanned too so that I have a digital version as well.

My friend recently gave me a load of really old B&W film... it's dated 1995 and hasn't been stored properly so I'm expecting it to be rubbish... I found an old 30s developing bulb in a charity shop, gonna try and get some chemicals and do them myself, and borrow his negative scanner. I've taken about 4 or 5 films of it now so I hope I haven't been completely wasting my time! Could be interesting... could be a waste of time! Who knows?!

Send them to Truprint... then you don't have the embarrassment of looking the developer in the eye with shame.

Alternatively, give it to Kelly to develop and allow her to make multiple copies to pass around all your friends and stick up in the local area.

Tell me about it... I've developed my own pictures, should really learn how! So even with really old Truprint envelopes I can easily part with £50 every time I send off some films... and I'm nearly all out, I'm going to have to start paying their normal prices soon Cry

you might be able to get developing only for a bit less than having prints of everything

Yea, I know... but I like the prints. It's not the same just getting a CD, though they are super handy and are used more than the prints... the physical print is lovely to have.

i'm wondering if just getting developing, then scanning them yourself (better quality than the standard pics on cd imo, which are about 2megapixel), then just getting prints of your favourites would work out cheaper...

i don't know if st pauls family & learning centre still have the darkroom, they got the watersheds stuff when cinema 3 went in... which i think included colour processing... but i'm not sure

I could just get the developing, but with truprint you can get upto 5 films on one cd for £2.99 rather than paying individually like you do with a lot of other places so it wouldn't make much difference to the price to be honest. Unless you mean just get the negatives, then I would need a negative scanner.

Yep St Pauls Centre def still has a dark room. You can pay around £60 for a years membership and book it to use whenever you like. Its really nice for a community centre/state funded facility. Get involved! They supply developing chemicals - you need to supply photo paper though : ) Enjoy!

Yea, a brief look reveals a 12 month membership is £42, 6 months membership is £32.  £10 per session for B&W, £16 per session for colour for members.

Do you know how long a session is?

not sure sorry. i did a course with st pauls adult learning which teaches you how to use the facilities but i didnt finish it (gonna do it again though - its really interesting!) and they told me about hiring the darkrooms. its never very busy there though so i imagine you get a good half day per session. you may have to share it with others which would be a bit annoying and slow you down. give them a call -- i am sure they are pretty helpful Smiley 0117 914 5470

I'm pretty sure I already know the answer to this question but I thought I'd check with people who know far more than me on the subject... I have a film Canon EOS 300X SLR camera... If I was to buy the body of a Canon DSLR, would I be able to use the lense I already have?

AFAIK yes as your one uses the EF mount. New Cannon use the EF-S mount. So your lense will work on the new Cannons but your new lense will not work on your old cannon. but you might wanna check this out before lashing out 600 notes

Time to resurrect this thread as I'm desperate to get out into the countryside shooting again but the adverse weather has trapped me in bristol. It's also been rubbish starting & finishing work in the dark & not being able to get daylight shots of the snow. rubbish!

So, any photographers had chance to get out in the snow?

As the others have said; yes, but...

depending on how much you spend on the dslr, you might not be able to autofocus - i know that the entry level nikons don't - and as you'll be using a full-frame lens with a digital sensor (unless you're looking to drop £2k on a full-frame dslr), the focal length will be multiplied by 1.6.
So a 50mm prime will shoot pictures at the equivalent of ~75mm on the digital sensor. If you can handle these minor intrusions, its all good. My 50mm prime is my favourite lens.

Hope that makes sense. Ken Rockwell goes into more detail here

Hey, I'm doing some research for a project I'm thinking of doing based around closing time at the pub... think aftermath, confrontation, spilt drinks and vomit, shot in low light. Just wondering if anyone's got any links to or suggestions of work that sounds similar? Urban low light stuff would be good, especially around Bristol, as I'm hoping to head back to shoot most of the project around St Pauls/Werburghs/Montpelier if possible.

Cheers!
