    Hi westwest1,

    Never tried doing that. However, I guess one MAY be able to pull it off with some sort of support (eg: leaning against a pillar/tree, or with both elbows on a railing).

    I would be hard pressed to perform a 1/8 sec exposure under long focal lengths.

    My 2 cents.

    Tat's why I say, focal length counts...

    I can handhold at 1/15 for 24mm, 50mm primes... but when it's a heavier lens or longer focal length, I'd give up and use extenal support.

    And before we even have VR technology, the other photographers managed to get by... so why can't we?

    Does this also happen even if you have a fast shutter speed? What kind of lens are you using? I suggest trying proper camera holding techniques (left hand holding lens with elbow tucked against your body) for better stabilisation. If possible, try using a tripod.

    So 200mm, we need at least 1/200 shutter speed to avoid handshake?

    Best answer I have read so far

    National Geographic photographers to name one distinctive group that has been around for how many decades now? Has a non VR lens/camera ever stop them from taking great shots left alone mediorce shots by the everday joe?

    Just like any one need to learn proper technique of photography before you should start buying more high end equipment or cameras with all the bells and whistle. The same goes to learn first how to hold your camera and learn about shutter speed...VR will only go so far to help you. It can and will still fail you if you don't add more mindful fundementals to handling your gear. It is a combination of ability, know how and equipment that will get you the optimise result.

    if you hand are super steady, you can handheld 1 stop or slightly more slower, giving you about 1/100s.
