Re: First Post

Hi Gopal,
If you need sharper images whilst handholding, you should have your shutter speed quicker than 1/focal length (in this case, quicker than 1/300 sec). I don't think you'd struggle to get a quicker shutter speed because your light conditions would be so bright.
If light isn't great, increase the ISO setting and maintain the high shutter speed. You'll see a lot of sports photographers using these settings.

Gopal, I've just looked at your gallery and already you have loaded many fine photographs. You are obviously an accomplished nature photographer and it's great to have you aboard.

I thought it should be 1/2xthe focal length on 4/3. So 1/600 of a second for a 300mm lens.

Yes, the old adage is a generalization anyway and applies to effective focal length for the 135 film format so as a starting point you have to half the reciprocal exposure time on Four Thirds (i.e. 1/125th to 1/250th). Conversely, with a 6x7 medium format camera the reciprocal exposure time can theoretically be doubled (1/60th to 1/30th). These guidelines of course make no allowance for subject movement, image stabilization technology, wind, stability of ground upon which you are working, individual steadyness of hand and camera holding technique, and numerous other factors. Not for your benefit, David - I'm sure you know how to suck eggs!

Thanks David - that is something I hadn't thought about. I usually compensate for blurriness by stepping up the ISO and increasing the shutter speed anyway... the beauty of digital photography
