Just relax enjoy your trip. Playaround with all the camera functions. You can try all you know and you may get it right.
Think of concepts and work towards it.
i set my own rules, in order to avoid blurr image without tripod, i have to set focal length = focal plane shutter
eq. if you are using 18mm focal length then the minimum focal plane shutter is 1/18 (1/18 = 0.055sec), and if you are using zoom lens, let's say 200mm, you will encouter image blurr during handheld, therefore to avoid this minimum you have to set the shutter to 1/200 (1/200 = 0.005sec).
The faster the shutter, lesser risk to get imager blurr.
30" meaning 30 sec
1/30 meaning 0.033sec

some question. to prevent handshake on the camera. for 18mm we use shutter speed of 1/18, do we need to take into a consideration of the crop factor? 18 *1.6(350D)=28.8
so we use 1/30 instead? is that better? unless we using a full frame like (5D).
Pentax K5, MZ-L, DA 16-50mm, FA 77mm Ltd
if your camera has shake reduction you can do longer
if your hand holding technique even better
wide angles are more forgiving than telephoto, that's for sure, i have done 1 second exposures handheld (sr on) which were pretty ok to my eye.. at 10mm anyways
