Whatever. Putting it on a tripod is the simplest way to eliminate hand shake. In fact that's why tripods were invented. But yes, we wouldn't want to eliminate hand shake as the source of the problem because that would might create cognitive dissonance in the minds of the shutter shock faithful.

That's rich - the cognitive dissonance is all on your side. As I demonstrated to almost you a month ago, the shutter shock blur doesn't always disappear when the camera is mounted on a tripod.

Here it is again, plain evidence of increased blurriness in the shutter shock danger zone with hand shake eliminated:

Huh. Look at that. The ISO100 (1/40), ISO200 (1/80) and ISO400 (1/160) images are significantly more blurred than the ISO800 (1/320) image.


Assuming DPReview puts each camera on a good tripod when shooting their studio comparison scene (I think that's a safe assumption), how do you explain the above evidence?

Cognitive dissonance much?
