    I am sorry TK-F430, but we are not allowing links to other Forums, especially not those you have to register with to be able to see the pictures. So your post above is deleted..:eek:

    Unique Transom

    I thought this was a rather interesting transom idea.

    What was the name of this vessel?

    "I am hoping to get a DSLR when i am at the FLIBS so that i can take better pictures."

    Ehh? Your photos are plenty high quality. I wouldn't break the bank for a fancy DSLR. I haven't had a chance at a DSLR. But I've seen posts on a lot of sites that they can be more aggravation than they are worth. Of course a huge lump of a camera always scores points when you are trying to wrangle a press pass ...

    I think it's Boadicea, built by Amels.

    I've re-instated the link to the Monaco images on F-Chat. This is one of those exceptions to the rules. Thanks guys!

    DSLRs are more demanding and require a certain amount of skill.
    But when you know how to handle them, they can help you get stunning results. But DSLRs are really only for people who take it seriously and are willing to devote some time. Otherwise the results you get are not considerably better than the ones you get from the average point and shoot. Maybe even worse.

    I can personally recommend the Nikon D40 as a great, easy to use, "newbie-friendly" DSLR. It is pretty cheap as well(over here a kit with a decent lense is about 500 euros) and provides excellent value. Don't bother getting the D40x though, its not worth the extra cash.
    One thing you always have to consider with DSLRs though are the additional costs. Often there is a good kit lens that comes with the camera but for certain situations you might want to get other lenses which can be quite expensive too. also you will need to get proper SD or flash cards (depending on the camera), as DSLRs usually save the images in RaW format, which is considerably larger than jpeg and alike.

    But DSLRs are a lot of fun if you are into photography. also you are usually treated with more respect as DSLRs look way more professional than normal digi cams with integrated lenses. Therefore you look way more professional too. :)

    Thank you all for the advice on the DSLR matter. I have been doing my research and have worked with SLR Cameras. I want to get a DSLR to be able to take action shots when we have the Super Yacht Cup again and when i go to boat shows. I will be starting off with the Canon 400D

    I think you are right, an SLR is a better option for yacht photography where you often have difficult lighting situations. Or to take fast/short exposures like this one I catched on 1/4000 sec yesterday...

    She is a 54.5 m Amels from 1998 and the transom is covered with wood, to ensure a high maintenance...;)

    (My pictures are from Antibes last year..)
