Default Night shots of Shanghai harbor

I was in Shanghai last December, part of an eight day/5 cities tour. These pictures were taken during a boat cruise at night. The lens on my NX100 (20-50mm) does not for OIS, and most of the pictures came out fuzzy. I really wish they put OIS on this lens.

G'day WCK

The results may not be to "your 100%" satisfaction, but they are okay, and they are good memories. Enjoy them for what you have achieved ... they are certainly better than the other 99% of travellers with their little happy-snap cameras :-)

Regards, Phil

Thanks, Phil! I was just a little disappointed. I never considered not having IS on a short lens critical until I was on a boat. The weather was bad that day so I left my DSLR at the hotel and brought the NX100. Then the rain stopped and harbor view was cleared. I still need some practice on shots like these.

G'day WCK

Well mate ... "If I were there..." - I would have
= camera on burst
= spread my legs to make a tripod of myself...

I have found over the years that with hand-held long exposures [<1sec] the 1st pic is blurry from pressing the shutter button, but the 2nd & 3rd & 4th are much better as all I'm doing is holding the camera still

On the computer screen I blow up all images to 100% and go back & forth thru them to pic the best of the bunch. Sometimes I get more then 1 that's 'perfect', but whatever it is, I have multiple chances of getting something 'good'

Hope this helps...
Regards, Phil
