Yeah, I shot this with the 40D- pretty much any SLR camera should be able to pull this shot off- providing you've got some quality glass to throw on front -Regardless, thank you so much for the comment! I definitely appreciate the words / compliment-
You surely can't do this one with a 450D I tried to shoot my girlfriend's dog when we released him, after 2 weeks of staying on a leash, and holy cow that little guy was running so fast the camera couldn't get focus on him on AI Servo
EF 50mm f/1.8 II But it's not the lens. It's the body. If you put you 40D on AI Servo and focus it while slowly moving the camera away from the subject, you'll see a smooth roll of the focus ring. On my 450D, the ring rotates jerky and has a little lag. After all, your's a sports camera, while mine is an entry camera My girlfriend will get an D700 at her birthday, I can't wait for that
Haha! Yes I will. But it's not in her hands yet. Let's hope for the best and nothing costly happens until then, because that camera is one damn expensive piece of equipment, and there's a lot bad things that could happen until then. After that, maybe she'll try to make money out of it, rather than 'wearing' the camera for hobby. After all, you get that much money from your parents once in a lifetime, at your majority day (don't know if it's called like that; the day you make 18 years ).
