Not work­ing hands-free

NPhoto - - Special Feature -

A tri­pod is the best way to en­sure sharp pho­tos at very slow shut­ter speeds, but even the stur­di­est set of legs may not pre­vent de­tails from look­ing smudged if the cam­era isn’t per­fectly sta­ble. The ac­tion of press­ing down on the shut­ter re­lease but­ton can jog the cam­era, so it’s worth trig­ger­ing the shut­ter with a re­mote re­lease, or us­ing the self-timer or ex­po­sure-de­lay func­tion for pic­tures that aren’t time-sen­si­tive. Vi­bra­tions caused by the mir­ror mov­ing (to ex­pose the sen­sor to light) can also lead to soft shots. To rem­edy this, use the cam­era’s Mir­ror Up (MUP) mode or ac­ti­vate Live View, as the mir­ror is moved out of the way in Live View.
