Today I tried 3200 ISO fitting also my vintage Pentax "Right-Angle Viewfinder" so this photo inside my salon was shoot using the available light !

I selected F:10 & the shutter speed was 1/13sec yes hand held!
I'd have tried 1/6 second at ISO 1600 instead, using a self timer with mirror lockup. You'd have to be very careful not to move any after locking focus until the shutter trips. I'm only teasing (maybe). ;-)

Yes, I can imagine stablization can help a lot with macros, even in better light (so you can keep the ISO speeds set lower than you could otherwise when stopping down the aperture a lot).

Hi my dear Jim!

Yes your cute method is the "Right" one...but using self timer with any kind of "Tripod"...or at least resting on a book or something like that it's impossible to "Hand held" steady...because when the shutter is activated the mirror block the viewfinder & with me in this case I'm 100% sure, I will move the camera by "Instinct"...so I think that in "Real Time"...don't work!:?

Jim...peace to all of us!

Yes. It would be tough not to move shooting macros. :-)

I took a few shots that way using the self timer with mirror lockup a while back, trying to see if I could get away using my 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5 to get some photos by firelight shooting at 1/10 second and ISO 3200. It's tough trying to time your shots shooting people at 1/10 second using a hand held camera with the mirror flipped up blocking your view using the self timer.

Dear Jim,

Only when my lovely 7D will be mounted on any of my tripods collection very safely...always i will use the 2 sec "Self Timer" feature...as always automatically will close the "AS" issue...making possible to obtain maximum quality...as "AS" together with a tripod is NOT allow!.

Last week I make to myself a "Gift" an a "Chest Pod" device fabricated by the German brand Cullmann...look my attached link!

Now my dear Jim I want to attach my first test of this lovely "Chest Pod" stabilizing tripod really to me this device help me a lot!

Peace,

I can still remember the photo you posted of yourself wearing a small table top tripod. :-) I thought that was a neat way to do it, too.

Yes my dear Jim!
