Challenge has finished
Steady Shot INSIDE stabilisation is a feature on all alpha cameras, helping both reduce camera shake and allow you to use much lower shutter speeds without ruining your images. It also opens up a whole world of creative flexibility. In this challenge we are looking for the best hand held image that shows use of a slow shutter speed.

11th place
Was hiking in the Olympic National Forest with my A700 and CZ 16-80 and got between this bull and his cows. These are the biggest elk in the world with the bulls getting up to 1200 lbs. Just such a lush scene you think you are in the tropical jungle. Not a technically great shot but for not expecting this scene I was quite pleased at the reult. Next time I will have my 50mm 1.4 with me hopefully.
