Hi knpan, do you mean using a tripod and setting to long exposure time?U can still take a very well exposed and low noise pic, you can even go to as low as ISO 200 even if you know long lens technique , and u still can achieve very sharp results. A colugo is very easy to take as it do not move, or much in the daylight.
Thanks DeSwitch for sharing. I will do a google search for itGood tripod is a must if you want sharp images in low light. Bumping ISO too high will also lost details. Different body have different limits. Know your gears, and work within the limits. I had even shot a black back kingfisher in almost total darkness without flash. Exposure was 30 seconds at ISO 400 f8.
Long lens technique can easily be found on nature forum. Just google for it. Take is as a guide and develope a style to suit you. Not every technique works for everyone.
Thanks knpan for the advice. I am saving to get a good tripodDeswitch answered u above, wat I can add is, actually even a cheap lousy tripod will still help u get sharp pictures. Lets say this amount of wind might not shake your image with a solid sturdy tripod, but if you are using a non stable tripod at that time your images will be blurred, it is about proper technique to get it sharp. Once there is no wind, it is how your skills bring out your final output , either blurred or sharp.
