Does it really matter for outdoor shots with good sunlight? with average shutter speed 1/250 - 1/1000? If i dun have it, will it affect the sharpness of the pics if i have minimal handshake and correct aperture and other settings as well? :dunno:

VR is good for long zoom or shots with low light condition.....in Nikon site, it says VR can help to increase shutter speed up to 3 stops (they dun use stops, but it can increase up to 1/8 of the fastest shuter a person can shot handheld). So, in low light or long zoom, up to u to interpret.

FYI, 1/250 may not be fast enough if you handheld a 300mm lens and above, unless you hand is very stable....rule of thumb, 1/focal length......:)

But what if one practices wrongly? With no guidance, one can waste a lot of precious time... sometimes never getting it right and forming bad habits instead. Anyway I believe not everybody wanna share their tips, haha!

If you have ever gone for any course that teaches you how to shoot a weapon (be it conventional firearms or air weapons) the techniques are roughly the same. Stable stance, keeping your elbows close to your body, controlling your breathing and learning to squeeze and not jab the shutter/trigger. There are other techniques like using other stable objects for support and all the different stances for you to choose form. I believe most basic photography books will at least give some tips on minimising hand shake...

Yups, thats more like it. I already know that, but someone was asking for the proper techniques, thats why I was saying its much better than saying practice practice practice and learning naturally without a rough guide...

Nope, the best is foxhole with support.

Btw, breathing technique is important during shooting (yes, in photography). It plays a crucial role esp if you are in low light conditions.
