#1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax;
None of these two are published very often, maybe you're on to something when you mention the keeper rate......the 2 most published photogs use 600 F4 IS USM (and quite "normal" tripods+heads, nothing fancy like the Gimbal kind ones...)....talent wise, i suppose that vibraction reduction built-in these lenses is a plus and those using Nikon have to pay extra for even better tripod setups to compensate this, as well as needing to have superior technique, which is a positive point for someone determined to get there (as myself...:wink: )....Retief said:Remember that you don't know what the "keeper rate" is for these guys. It could be that #2 gets 1 our of every 2 really sharp, but #1 shoots 10 times as many for the same yield. Can't tell from this thread at all.
My 2p plus Paul's 2p, let's see, that gets you 3p closer to your new camera :wink:
I've read all the information available on the web, including your own, which by itself is already a must-read. What i need now it to wait for my Gimbal head and until then, keep practicing on the terrain....tomorrow i'm going to shoot surf and i'll see how it goes. I'll try to use both tripod and monopod to see what can be achieved with each. Btw.... it's nice to be in the club...:biggrin:andreasb said:What I see in your shots is what I think are vibrations, not that the lens is not focusing. Keep practising, it takes time! Try to be over 1/800 if you can with shots like these, i.e push ISO to say 800 and try it. You might also want to read Thom Hogans article that I point to in the first post in this thread about tripods, the more I read it the more I think he is right...
