  • Image stabilization with E-330

    Due to lack of image stabilization module on the E-330, what should be done to end up with sharp images when hand held (I usually use either the macro 35 mm and the 70-300 mm)?

    You should be alright with the 35 as it's so light. Good technique should suffice for most shots. The 70-300 is a bit of a beast, Some can handhold it very successfully on a stabilized camera, but I'm not one of those folks. A tripod will make IS moot, and it's the way I go on both the 330 and L-1.

      You can, of course, use image stabilised lenses from Panasonic Leica.

      Alternatively, use a tripod or monopod, or even a mini-pod. The larger Gorillapods are OK too. If that's not practical, brace your arms against your sides or lean against a convenient tree or wall, etc.

      Squeeze the shutter release very smoothly and gently. Don't jab at it.

      Another tip is to use continuous shooting mode and take 3-4 shots in one burst. With luck, one shot will be sharper than the rest.

      You can also place the camera on a wall or other solid surface and use the self-timer to trigger the release without touching it.

      There are a few ideas for you!

        The burst mode technique is one that has always worked well for me.

          That's a great tip. I hadn't thought of that and I will certainly give it a try. Logically one of the middle shots of the burst - after the initial squeeze on the shutter button but before releasing the button could be sharper.
