SX50 Shutterspeed guideline
The guideline for shooting handheld, at a shutter of at least equal or faster than the focal length, is explained in great detail on the net and I always try to apply it, because I don't have the steadiest of hands
I +/- understand the need for it and have a simple question:
The lens = 4.3 - 215 mm - due to its small 1/2.3" sensor, the crop factor of the SX50 I believe is something like 5.6 - now if say, I shoot at a focal length of 50 mm (equivalent focal length +/- 280 mm) and the available light needs a shutter of 1/200" - with the crop factor in mind: will I thus "need" a shutter of about 1/1100" (200 x 5.6) - OR - do I need a shutter of 1/280" (50 x 5.6)? (the IS would "allow" me about 2 stops slower, I think).
I would like to get clarity on this - could you please enlighten me.
Thank you and regards from South Africa
