    Brie, I noticed that you're using quite a slow shutter speed, on the last 2 photos. Are you using a tripod, bracing against the tank, or hand holding?

    I typically use anywhere from 1/10 to 1/50 shutter speed... I don't use a tripod for much of anything as it makes me feel too limited in movement.. For the photo of the red scoly, it was taken top-down, through a little free floating lookdown box, and the acan was just handheld pointed at the tank... The 90mm is usually too much of a magnification for me so I usually have to crouch a ways back from the tank to get more then a single tiny polyp or something. lol.

    How are you able to hold steady, at 1/10 shutter speed? lol. Once I'm slower than 1/40, I have a very hard time holding steady, unless I put the lens directly against the glass, to keep the camera still. I can "hand hold," without any bracing or rests, down to about 1/40, on a regular basis, and keep it steady, unless I'm using a zoom and am zoomed out past about 150. At about 150mm, I need to be at 1/50 or faster, to hold steady, and after 200mm, I have a hard time holding steady slower than 1/60...lol. Must be my old age tremors!!

    I can go about 2 stops slower, if I use Image Stabilizing, on lenses that offer that.

    Yeah, must be the OldTimers.

    At 1/10 I usually have to prop my elbow/hand on something to keep perfectly still, esp with the macro lens, but above that I dont have much problem keeping still. I have pretty steady hands. At 1/20 i'm pretty comfortable. Prolly helps too that I will shoot off 5-6 shots in succession, to ensure i've got a good shot.

    I dont shoot telephoto much, only when i'm at the zoo or NWTrek, or out hiking/sightseeing, etc... When I do, yeah I can't shoot handheld really above 150. Lens is just too big and makes the camera too front heavy to keep still easily with my small hands. Honostly I dont see how anyone can use the smaller Rebel's without the battery grip on it, the camera body is just tiny.. Even with my hands being small, I have a hard time holding onto it.

    Ya know, now that you mention camera size, and I think about it, you're absolutely right. I'm much better at hand holding, with slower speeds, with the Canon 7D than I was with the Rebel Xt. The camera weight makes it so much easier to hold steady!
