Gotta Love That Shake Reduction

Just a steady hand and SR.

SMC-A 50mm f/2.0 @ 1/30 ISO 1600


SMC-A 50mm f/2.0 @ 1/6 ISO 800

Nice shots.

Yes, Shake-Reduction is such a superb feature, I probably wouldn't consider any future camera without In-Body SR.

Lens-based IS/ VR, while its also effective, are such a rip-off on price.

Apehaus, that second photo is really impressive for 1/6 sec. May I ask where you found the scene?

Thanks!

It's one of the many alleys in the Old Pasadena area. I mapped it here.

EDIT: Actually, both are from Old Pasadena, the first image being from an alleyway converted into the entrance to a wine bar on the second floor of a building.

+1 there. paying a couple hundred more (plus size and weight) on EVERY lens doesn't sound like fun. Plus everytime I update my body every lens I own gets a better version of SR.

Even though I am forced to use them anyway sometimes, I hate tripods. Too big, clunky, heavy, and frankly they're a pain in the ass to setup and use.

SR in the body is a really sweet development, and if you know your camera basics and apply some logic to the situation shooting in a more manual way, you can get even more amazing results from the SR system.

amazing shots for the time values given.
Me too, I'm happy with my SR in K100D. Great that it transforms even old glass into SR. Certainly better way then in lens VR or SR or whatever you call it. Maybe those in lens give you extra stop, but then hey don't we want too much, I think 2-3 stops (depending on steadiness of our hands) we can get out of Pentax in body SR is pretty cool. And beyond? well we need to keep tripod manufacturers on paid jobs too, don't we

Both dramatic shots utilising the best of available light, good eye!
It's a great feature and probably the one I appreciate most after the
extra resolution.
