Vibration Reduction (VR)
This is a dramatic illustration of the VR
hand-held capability of the Nikkor 18-200
DX VR lens. The lens was stopped down to force a slow 1/20th second
exposure. This will ensure a blurred image. This is equivalent to a 300mm
focal length on a 35mm camera.
Now we will turn on the VR, no other changes were made and the result
One image is useless, but the other is more than
useful. Not just Nikon but other camera makers do vibration reduction,
either in the lens or in the camera body (some with fixed lens like prosumer cameras). The above shows that this technology has a place, but
it is an advantage that it can be switched in or out.
