Real Vs False Claims?


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 is dramatic:

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.

Just had a terrible thought. If "intelligent design" is unscientific, then who will design our audio equipment?
