The FZ150 OIS should get the credit ...

Wow, I admire your steady hands, Simon. That's not an easy feat, shooting at 1000mm handheld. Nice capture.


Daniel -

Thanks for the compliment, but I think most of the credit for shooting at 1000mm equiv. handheld belongs to the FZ150 OIS. Here's one that I took handheld at 1/50. The rule of thumb is 1/(focal length) sec. speed to avoid camera shake from blurring one's photo. In this case that would be 1/1000 sec. I shot it at 20 times slower. I too am amazed.

FZ150+LT55, 1000mm equiv., 1/50 sec. handheld. No PP.
