Experiment Shows the Value of Mirror Lockup and a Tripod

Posted by Lee Yuan Sheng in "Digital Home Articles & Resources" @ 06:30 PM

"It’s the reflex in Single Lens Reflex – the ubiquitous mirror that allows SLR cameras to use the same optical path for composition, focusing, and metering. The mirror action is a marvel of mechanical genius, but does the mirror movement cause vibrations that subtly degrade the image? And does the mirror lock-up feature solve the problem?"

The video and accompanying article is a nice way of demonstrating the value of both mirror lock-up and a tripod, something most veteran photographers have known all this while. So next time if you are feel like leaving the tripod at home, watch this video.

Microsoft Attempts to Replace Tripods and Lens Stabilisers

"Microsoft Research has presented a research paper at the 2010 SIGGRAPH conference that shows a new hardware+software approach to reduce image blur due to camera motion. Their approach takes advantage of inertial measurement sensors attached to a DSLR, measuring the camera's acceleration and angular velocity."

Microsoft has come up with a combined hardware and software solution to eliminate blurred images from camera shake. It takes movement input from the sensors, then takes the data and corrects the original image. It's pretty good, if you read the MS paper and results, but it's also not quite 100%. Don't just throw out your IS/VR/whatever lenses and bodies yet!
