Re: Using Digital Teleconverter

I sometimes use the 2x function at music festivals (obviously not this year) and have got good results with shorter, faster lenses. As has been mentioned it's super quick to use, especially if you assign it to a function button.

However, with the 40-150 f2.8 and 1.4x TC I've found it extremely difficult to hold the camera steady enough to frame the subject; a tripod is not an option, though a monopod might be possible. Has anyone tried using the 300 f4.0 Pro with DTC, and if so what's the lowest feasible shutter speed handheld? Thanks.
