Not really. If got evf and using your forehead as third support, you can get as low as 1/50s even on apsc. Just maybe not for run and gun scenario.

I see, I see. Butt itchy, probably want to get a cheap lens to play around... Helios look decent, I think, for that price range. I was told it used to be a lot cheaper than that.

Domo-kun stable hand is always welcome. but stable posture is even better~ 50mm can go as low as 1/15 handheld with good posture. with OIS/IBIS it can go as low as 0.5s...

good posture including how you hold the camera and lens, your body leaning or squad, or with your arm leaning on table or wall.

As much as i would like to take ieR's advice. 1/15s is definitely possible with good posture and ois but do keep in mind the chances of getting more blurry shots are much higher so normally i would go against that advice. Otherwise you go back home with more blurry shots than necessary which could have been saved. That said, stick with shutter speed equal focal length rule with high iso and use the low shutter speed sparingly.

0.5s handheld is a bit of a stretch even with ois. Do bear in mind, shock caused by mirror slap and shutter curtain cause a bit of vibration as well.

It just means its doable, doesn't mean its encouraged. It's good to be able to do it in a pinch. I've plenty of half second shots during my travels, with no tripod to use etc. It all boils down to how well the user know his own limitation.

nice! i like the colour. not too saturated, and purple fringing/chromatic aberration is an issue of the lens.

focusing was a little all over the place in some scenes tho. were you on autofocus?

[CODE]

Dont think it is lens issue, more on the body. Thats why a lot of videographer prefer manual focus regardless of camera model. Some of scene with people passing and blocking the view, you should have used manual focus. If peaking is unusable, use manual asist (magnify).

doh.gif daddyO we just discussing posibility and differences in shooting at low shutter... not comparing or competing in who shoot better in low shutter. but then, there is a lot issue to be consider also, shooting a static subject like landscape wouldnt be a dealbreaker, but if like shooting moving subject, imagine shooting a stage event at 1/15, even your hand doesnt shake, subject will be in motion blur.... its how your practice it... but if the stage made you shoot at 1/15, we know the stage is underlit, so its easily compensate by using flash and freeze the movement.

then saying mirror slap or shutter vibration. make me think are you a sony shooter or a canikon anti-sony shooter. sony A mount left slapping mirror tech in 2011, when they first introduce SLT(fixed mirror, then in 2012 introduce the eletronic first curtain(2nd gen mirrorless onwards). since then, there is no such thing as mirror slap or shutter vibration like other dslr systems. doh.gif

Eccentrical, kyLL: i dont think is lens issue (or strictly body), no matter what lens you are on, how professional kit you have, you will still face color distortion issue(maybe a good lens will minimize it, but not eliminate it), hence why ppl shot in slog or flatDR setting, and do postprocessing(color grading) to reduce or eliminate the CA.

for the AF use, maybe you can set 'selective af spot' and select where you wan your focus to stay on. but do mind you, any camera, when used in low light (example bon odori event) will suffer from AF... maybe expect A7s rclxs0.gif ... hence its very normal for it to go hunting in mid recording.

manual focus of e mount is using fly by wire focus mechanism, which is good for beginner video usage, but professional video groupie hates it(lack of direct feel and control) unlike direct geared manual focus where the focus transition rely on your hand/skill(jerky harsh focus or gentle focus transition).. fly by wire focus has a delay and very gentle transition, but you are not in control of it, hence some (a lot) people shooting video with Emount Native lens suffer from the focus delay and usually end up turning the focus ring harder and faster causing missing the target/mark.
