Re: Using Digital Teleconverter

Henry Richardson wroted thus:

As for lowest handheld shutter speed, well, that depends on the individual. Remember you have to also have a speed that is enough to freeze subject movement.

Understood. I've found 1/250 is good for stopping action, 1/125 is usually enough, 1/60 is often enough, and less than that rarely works. It's framing that seems to be the bigger problem, not really surprising at 840mm equivalent; what I've been wondering is whether Sync IS would help much with that. I also suspect a monopod would be banned for those lacking accreditation and/or would cause problems with security, aside from being a PITA.
