    Not sure if I put this in the right place but I made these two videos with my D40 over the past few months, they were really easy to make, I post how if you are interested

    I did it by shooting on continuous mode, with my camera on the tripod and slowly adjusting the focus on the lens (100mm f/2.8) it is not hard at all and produces pretty good results imo. Once you have the pictures you can put them in QT pro, of final cut, or any movie editor all with same set duration and that is it. try it
