| p.3 #13 · Full frame dSLR for manual focus? |
Sure, running water could be another example. A tripod could do it and make it better too, and why not use a ND filter if you like that type of shots and bring it to the next step. A different thing would be to use follow focus and get a car sharp and the rest blurred. Makes me wonder how the IBIS behaves there.. panning mode is one of the useful features of the big whites.
IBIS it is a good feature, but for wides it's more on the fringe. And my point was that IMHO it stand no chance outwaying the other feature differences. Just my cents.
dude, no offense, but i'm always super annoyed by people who have never used IBIS telling me that it's not useful. i personally thought it was the greatest thing about digital cameras after adjustable iso (way more useful than AF). i can tell you from experience that 1/5 s is plenty fast to shoot adults in most situations. if you only shoot kids and sports with wide angle lenses than IBIS is less useful. but if you use it to ever shoot static objects or people standing still/sitting it is awesome to be able to shoot 35mm and 1/5th of a second without having to check and see if you got motion blur. shooting in low light (which i understand you have a lot of these days ) i found i could drop iso 3 stops for the majority of my shooting. also, as you mention, you can purposely catch motion blur without a tripod, which is occasionally nice, but not something i found came up that often. my old oly had a setting using IBIS for panning, no idea about the sony, because it's not something i ever used.
