In my last post about the Nikon L105 I talked about how there is no full time image stabilization. Nikon calls it motion detection and it is not available in the following situations:
- When the camera is set to Fill Flash
- When the ISO is set to a specific number in Auto Mode
- When using multishot
- When using these scene modes: Night Portrait, Dusk/Dawn, Night Landscape, Museum, Backlight
- When using Sports Continuous mode
or when the subject is too dark or too far away, like the moon. Whew!
I haven’t tried to get the moon again at night, but lucked up on it this evening near sunset. I know there was some camera shake because of the way I positioned myself on top of the car. This is what I got:
A little fuzzy, but not too bad and no post-processing.
Think I may wait on the tripod a little while longer.
