That is fun to see. Did you use support or can you take pictures from the hand with those speeds?

Great shots, that first one of the Eiffel tower is quite sharp!

Handheld? That's quite good then. Your Eiffel tower shot was 1/10s at 36mm, which is about 1/3 the recommended shutter speed even with SR.

Question: Is that calculation accurate on an APS-C camera? I do remember learning the rule of thumb of 1 / x (with x = focal length) being the practical limit for avoiding shake—but that was years ago, on a film camera, without anti-shake, etc.

Supposedly APS-C you should be doing 1/(1.5xFL), but I get away with 1/FL because I have steady hands anyways~

My understanding - and if RioRico ever appears and can confirm this - is that for sharp sharp pictures, you do 1/(5xFL). For non-pixel peeing pictures, you go 1/FL.
