...decides to steal a camera from a photographer...

...I guess he picks one that can autofocus as fast as he can run

Thats why he grabbed a camera with a 14-24 so the AF could keep up with that massive change in DOF as he runs

I wonder if any of those pictures will turn out, and how much they are worth...

You can see a bunch of them here... pretty good I think.

Apparently he has stolen this photographer's camera twice before.

Nice. However, even in jest, let's note that he's borrowing the camera, not stealing it folks.

I'm sure the photographer was happy to lend his camera. Pretty good shots too.

Usain also cuddles with a soft toy too. It's great to use a toy like that for fun and games. Because when it matters....

The photographer who handed him the camera is a genius. The 14-24 was a PERFECT choice for this... the shots Bolt took are great, so much better than if he'd handed him something with a more conventional portrait, or sport length. Also the DOF meant less concern for critical focusing

Pretty cool that he turned the camera onto the roaring crowd.. and I love the shot where Blake is posing for him and he's shooting it... but ALL THE OHTER CAMERAS are focused on "THE PHOTOGRAPHER" rather than the subject.

oh yeah and on the linked page you can see that he actually KNOWS how to properly hold a DSLR

Hum... just saw this expanded gallery that shows more of that camera swapparoo episode...

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/in-pictures-19208480

is it just me or are Usain's photos the best of the bunch?

How do you explain that?

He probably thought it was one of those ones that squirt water.

Um, the copyright info is wrong on that bbc photofeed - Bolt isn't listed at all. Or was he considered 'for hire' during this PJ internship?
