    I think those speedcams put out more light than your speedlight ever can.

    Kit, anyway in singapore, I think most people would slow down thinking that its the traffic police rather than engage in your course of action.

    Another method you can try without flash is panning.

    Keep your focus on the car and follow it as you depress the shutter.

    You will find that the car is in sharp focus and the rest of the back ground lights are blurred.

    To activate rear sync on the D40X, press the flash button and rotate the jogdial with your thumb until you see the words rear appear in the screen indicating rear sync.

    Yup... Next thing you know, you're explaining to the police "I was distracted by the dead police officer's flash..." By then "Tua Kee" already...

    I am always on the lookout for ma ta when I am driving. Heh. Sometimes it could be a friend.

    (for friends who are not singaporeans: that's a singlish derivative from the word "mata" which means "eyes" in malay. Used for policemen in general.)
