Photos OK to edit
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

Rainy Day on Vimeo

NYC on Vimeo
good stuff man good stuff, i've seen that nyc one on bmx-forum before i think
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
awesome! i LOVE the NYC one.

i have a D40 too, ive never shot on continuous mode but maybe i should!
I love this idea. Think I'm gonna try it with my D40 soon!

No, he did "technically" make a video.. all videos are made of still images. It just depends on how many frames are taken per second.
The thread's over seven years old... the OP hasn't been around in over six... probably a debate not worth having! ;)
