900mm at 1/50th of a second

As I jumped out of my bed this morning, I felt much better than the past days. Even though the weather seemed unsettled I decided to go on a photo tour. Another day on the couch, staring alternatively at the laptop and the TV, would have driven me mad. Obviously I am that kind of person that can take silence and relaxation only in small doses. 😉

It was cloudy, and the sun rarely showed her face for a few minutes. In other words, it was a typical “ISO200 to 400” winter day. As I use ISO400 rather unwillingly, the image stabilizer had to compensate another aperture stop. The shortest exposure time was 1/400s. Using 600m and 1/50s I have taken the dog picture below. Of course it is not as razor-sharp as we are used from the Foveon sensor, but the exposure time was four aperture stops longer than it should have been according to the 1/(focal length*1,5) formula for APS-C. Some twenty years ago such a freehand shot was inconceivable. It is astonishing how good cameras and lenses have become in the meantime and how much easier it is to photograph with the modern technologies.
