Not everyone is a beautiful banana like you, TS, so there is no point having a beautiful camera to pair with a not-so-beautiful photographer. :bsmilie:

A big lens on a tiny body.

Does not look good. IMO

A mis-match.

If you don't want to carry too much weight, this set up is perfect match :)

This photographer is very innovative, he use his shiny reflective bald head to bounce off the light to shine on his subject :bsmilie:

camera body and lens combi looks ok to me here (nikon 1's 2.7x crop used for it's advantage here, AF tracking may be fast enough for the dragonboat action)

However I noticed 2 other mis-matches:
1. the tripod looks too small for the lens
2. his muscles look too big for the set up (he should be using the set up suggested by rhino123 in post #18 :bsmilie: )

That is some seriously insane looking lenses up there. I wonder if you can actually break the lens mount just by holding the camera body to support the lens when you use such an odd setup.

I think it'd take quite a bit of guts and a huge dose of adventure to try holding the setup using the camera body.

The lens collar tells you where the gravity point is. What's the point of holding this by the body?

I think it would require stupidity and a lack of common sense.

I know you don't usually do. But I'm just thinking that the smaller camera would not have mounts that are designed for heavy lenses, hence easy breakage at a slight mishandling?

Is this setup 'usable' or just a mock up? haha, looks really cute.
Actually it works very well... the Industar 50-2 is one of my sharpest 50mm lens. Like it alot... ;)
