P950 - 5+ Stops of Image Stabilization
5

I knew active stabilization was good in the new camera, but just how good?  Camera  selected 1/5 second in Program mode.  Keep in mind this was handheld, no support, and hurriedly shot, and Bob's your uncle, it worked!

It works great, as you have shown.

This shot is around 550mm. Old reciprical rule would have 1/500th  shutter .

So 5 stops better VR would mean at 1/15th , should still get sharp image.

Over 5 stops.

Nikon wasnt hyping this feature , just for marketing.

Nice shot, too!

Stay healthy

Better light, bigger target(this squirrel's mama), faster shutter speed and much closer...

Crinkle, the female fox squirrel.  Acrobat that likes to feast at the bird feeder.

1/30th at 2000mm...Re: P950 - 5+ Stops of Image Stabilization

Here's his cousin.....no bird feeder...so he has to hunt for food

1/30th at 2000mm, handheld.

Yeah really excellent VR built into these P series Superzooms...perhaps the newest (P950) has the best yet.
