That process is only testing your ability to consistently hold a camera with no movement. The "best" shots are only the ones that randomly had less motion and says nothing about the cameras being tested.

The reason why people test sharpness on a static image with a tripod is to remove the variables. Otherwise you are only documenting which camera might look sharper when the image is motion-blurred.


Well said Sal.

Camera technique or more precisely the lack of, becomes very evident when the image is viewed in its fullest size especially in print. I am of course speaking from personal experience. The online experience is a great deal more forgiving in this respect.
