The Joys of Not Being Blurry

So msmemory and I went through the stills we took of the recent Carolingian production of A Midsummer Night's Dream, and I am happy to say that some of them don't suck. A lot are kind of blurry, but given that I was dealing with constantly-moving actors, with freehand exposures at about 1/8 - 1/15 second on Friday, and tripod exposures of 1/2 - 1 sec on Sunday, some blur is inevitable. Most of it appears to be more the actors moving than my hands.

Having all too often come out with entire rolls in recent years that look like they were shot by an epileptic with Parkinson's, it's nice to know that I'm capable of having a decently steady hand when I actually concentrate.

And although I dearly wish the thing could emulate a higher speed film, having the digital camera is very nice. Being able to shoot 180 shots without changing film was really liberating. Plus, we just upgraded the card, so it now holds 600+ shots at my usual XGA web-oriented resolution, or a respectable number of print-quality shots. Now I just have to wish for longer-lived batteries...
