Testing The Pentax K100D Shake Reduction Feature

First published on: Wednesday, 13 September 2006

Janneman has come up with an innovative way to test the effectiveness of the in-camera SR feature on the Pentax K100D — all you need are mufflers and a motorized lawn mower.

I’m very, very impressed with the sharp pictures he managed to obtain at low 1/30 and 1/45 sec shutter speeds.

  2. Lens used in the test: Sigma 18-125mm F3.5-5.6 DC IF ASP for Pentax

I’m pretty convinced that you can shoot sharp pictures of animals with the K100D while on an African Safari adventure and travelling in a bumpy jeep.
