    Question What is your SLOWEST SSS-shot, that worked?

    One of the things that seems to be hotly debated is how helpful Super SteadyShot has been with your particular SONY DSLR. In fact, it can be the breaking point between going with a SONY DSLR and ... something else.

    Normally, any handheld image shot below 1/60 with a 50mm lens, on a non-stablized camera or lens is subject to noticeable camera shake. Once stability is added, the chances are that without changing any of the other exposure settings, you can drop that speed to roughly 1/15 second.

    Arguably, there are some who cannot and some that can go all the way to 1/5 second. Honestly, this is a the ragged edge of Image Stability and almost defeats the purpose. Its intent is to alleviate the need for tripod support for routine, well lit images. Shooting images in low light is challenging, even with a tripod.

    With all that being said, this poll is to determine "How slow you have gone, indoors, under normal lighting (w/o a flash) and still gotten a sharp image for your SONY DSLR." You should be able to review your saved shots and determine the settings from the associated EXIF Data accompanying the shot. To read EXIF data with Explorer, on your PC, simply locate the file, right click on it, select "Properties" and the "Summary" tab in the "Properties" window.

    Just be honest with your response, as we are not setting any records here, just an operational expectation from "the group."

    Thank you for your participation

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.
