This post was continued with some tests: http://www.dreamstime.com/thread_29668
Test finished (at least, a preview).
Test subject: a small part of acrylic on canvas covered with varnish (lake protection). For next test I will use a towel (thanks Afagundes).

Tethered shoot (aperture changes was made from PC so the body was not moved).
Original Jpeg from camera (Standard, ISO 200, Noise reduction OFF, Long exposure noise reduction...
Sometimes you want to see if a photo was taken with VR On or Off. Usual image editing or viewing software don't show this.
This is how I do:
- Download Exiv2 from here:
- Windows version is here:
- Unzip in a root folder, I put it in C: because you will have to write a command line in Command window and will be easier.
- Copy your photo in that folder.
- Start - Run - Command to open the black Command window.
- Make sure at your cursor is C:> then type: cd exiv2
then type: exiv2.exe -g Exif.NikonVr.VibrationReduction Your_photo.jpg
(-g will display only VR related exif info).
A message like this: "Exif.NikonVr.VibrationReduction Byte 3 On" means that your VR was ON.
If not, you will see...
Another way to do this is with the free Nikon ViewNX 2 software. From the browser window you can: 1. Right-click any image. 2. Choose "Copy File and Camera Information". 3. Open a text editor, e.g., Word, Notepad, and then paste the contents from the clipboard.
Included among the details listed, is "VR: ON" or "VR: OFF".

Alvera photo - my journey in the microstock world
This external blog was made last year in november and it's not a very sophisticated blog. I use it for redirect buyers to my images from dreamstime. This blog brings me also some referrals.
I use it also to give buyers more info about my photos and IDEAS about how to use the images.
If you have a blog too, please add me there, I will add you too.
Thank you! Wish you peace and love and many sales!
You deserve it friend :) I have a blog too, but it's not even close to yours. http://parkinsonsniper.wordpress.com/ check it and give me some advices about what should I do to make it alive! :)) it looks dead, even to myself!
I made some photos at a drifting race. First one was approved today. I want to share my technique. First of all, you will need a shutter speed of about 1/8 - 1/20 sec. This is beyond my anti-shake abilities with a 450 mm lens so I use a tripod. Also, I pre-focused on the road - see photo below. But this is not all. Because it was a sunny day and my camera can do only 1/4000, I used a neutral density filter ND8 which gave me minus 3 full stops so with a f11 or f9.5 I was able to lower my shutter speed at 1/10. The result was a very sharp background and a motion blurred car (two cars in this photo). Hope more photos will be approved, I have one at 1/6 and the car is so distorted - a ghost on the street! Wish you luck! Oh, btw, in this case I saw the limitation of my low speed cards - see the previous blog....
