You can be the champion of handheld photography. But we will recognize this only if you tell us your technique.

Very good catch.

I got yesterday my new sigma 50-500mm F4,5-6,3 DG OS HSM. I mounted the objektiv on my Pentax K-3. I was shooting 7 pictures. On the last PictureI i adjust focal length to 500mm, aperture to f/9, ISO 800, exposuretime !/250, autofocus manual and OS on.
No other special technik
