K10D and SR: it's insane!

Couldn't believe my eyes: 1.3 seconds hand held! And yes, I do drink coffee

Re: K10D and SR: it's insane!

You must be incredibly steady! I love SR. I've had some experience with Panasonic's OIS which is why I KNEW I would HAVE to have it on a dslr. I can say that the k10d's SR is impressive indeed. But this is incredible. I am quite sure I couldn't get something this sharp at over 1 sec ss.

So much for the C*non marketing bull about lens correction being superior.

Re: K10D and SR: it's insane!

WoW! Great shot! And nice art work as well. I think even the picture framed would look almost as good as the real thing.

I also like the frame around the photo. I assume that is a photoshop action. Did you create it, or find it somewhere? I have looked several times, but can never find any actions that work well and result in such nice frames.

Thanks for sharing.

The caption says it all

A hand-held k10D with a DA 40mm, ISO 100, f/8 and 2 seconds

No sweat.

Of course I had two advantages:

1. The BG2 grip, which stabilized the shot with its extra weight and better finger-holds, and
2. An applet called "Absolute Sharpening Web".

So who's going to be the first member of the ONE MINUTE CLUB ??

I don't know how you did it

I don't know how you did it. I tried shots at 1.3 and 2 " with SR on and focal length at about 40mm and my elbows braced on a table and my pics still show camera shake.

That marketing was all about superior performance with longer focal lengths (where it's most often necessary), if I recall correctly. This example, while impressive, is using a 40mm lens and achieving something I can only see myself needing for fireworks photos (but YMMV as always)...

My wife said I was in the 1 minute club but it doesn't have to do with hand holding a camera.

BTW, I get the impression from he comments it's not a club I'm supposed to be in.

We need to call in the mimes to hold a workshop - 'standing still for Pentax owners'.

No, but:

1. I was seated (no armrests), arms pressed at my sides and pressed together against the camera, and

2. It was the best of three shots, taken about 10 seconds apart, and

3. I was holding my breath, as you can see by the lack of swirling dust that normally surrounds my desk, and

4. Seriously, I've started working out again, specifically to improve the sharpness of my pics (seriously).

Re: Yep - its insane alright!!

I have seen plenty of impressive examples with longer FLs as well including a bunch I did myself at 1/30 with a 300mm F4 lens which were consistently sharp. About half of the ones I did at 1/15 were also usable.
IMO thats at least competitive with any Canon IS lens.

And having SR available on wide angle lenses is extemely useful indoors in museums and churches where flash is not allowed and you still want to use low/moderate ISO.

Re: K10D and SR: it's insane!

i'm impressed. i have managed a few sharp shots at around a second with sr on, but most are not that sharp.

I'm curious what lens you were using.

i wonder if anyone has done a test to see of sr on/off has any negative image quality effects if its mounted on a tripod or somthing. from what i know clasicly that image stabilization can have a negative impact if you use it when you dont need it. be great if this is not the case on the k10d.

Assuming 1/60 sec is the max for 40 mm, I gained about 7 stops.
