In Topic: D810 and shutter speed

06 September 2017 - 11:27 PM

My D810 has not faultered, I'm always happy with images, when there is any blur I can see that it's my fault, hand holding long VR lenses expecting them to soak up 3-5 stops and starting with 1/125 at 300mm (on land). At times people forget the basic principles of photography.

One I've used for years is simple. Shutter speed should equal focal length at least, even with VR. It's true that VR helps but it's not to override Basic principles of obtaining sharp images.

There are people out there with more money that knowledge on the topic and will happily be upset with results created by their own foolishness at times. It will happen topside mainly I guess when not shooting flash.

We expect so much of VR and it can and does help, but better to apply principles that have been used for years.

Try and stationary subject with flash I'm sure it will be perfect.

I get exactly the same and treat it exactly as Larry has, sometimes a wrench in needed some not.

What I found increases the problem, is leaving the ports or rings in situ for multiple days. I'm just glad the fit is so perfect that's it's making a good seal lol. Using bad language and calling it names also helps I find !!! Lol

I'm just in Bali at present using mine. Works a total treat. I grabbed mine from EBay if that helps anyone.

You need to measure you optic diameter with a set of calipers

You can then select the next largest size from their range mine was 0.3mm oversized which was a perfect fit.
