My photo on Main page of Dreamstime :)

posted on 7th of march, 2009

I know it may not be a big deal for a lot of contributers here. But I'm so happy about seeing one of my photos on the Dreamstime main page. The cycling of the large photos on the main page are always so eye catching to me. But I never thought that one of my photos would ever be used for that. The smalls ones maybe but not the large cycling one. Sadly I think this will be the closest I ever would get to being a featured contributer so I thank Dreamstime Admins for choosing my photo. This gives me a great sense of accomplishment. I am now even more inspired to produce better photos. The photo featured on the main page is the one below.

Image stabilization or Vibration Reduction vs Large Aperture lenses

posted on 9th of march, 2009

The question always arises in a lot of camera and equipment forums ... Should I buy a lens with Image Stabilization (IS) or Vibration Reduction (VR) or buy lenses with larger apertures like F2.8?

Of course the best answer is buy a lens with both but what if you can only afford one or the other. You will likely see most people would say go for the large apertures because IS/VR doesn't prevent motion blur. And they are 100% correct about that.

But what I also hear from most people that larger apertures are better for low light photography. This however is NOT 100% true. Large apertures are only good in low light situations when you are shooting at large apertures. i.e. a lens that has a largest aperture of F2.8 is not good in low light condition if you are shooting in...

Hey Silvia. I think you will appreciate having the VR. I end up using it all the time even for situations that you might not think your need it. Ex. Landscape photos in overcast days. Normally have to start shooting at ISO 400 or higher when shooting small apertures but with VR you can get away with ISO 100 (three stops)
