Now.. I am posting this in the beginners forum because I tihnk it could be relevant to alot of beginners. Here is the question I have for you...I often hear people saying for example, that on a Crop camera you need to take into consideration the 'crop factor' when calculating shutter speeds to avoid camera shake.I feel this may be false information? So anyway to give an example, some would tell you that with a 35 1.8G lens you would need a shutter speed of at least 1/60 to avoid camera shake, as the 35mm 1.8 is equivalent to a 52mm lens on a DX Nikon camera body. As we know, the focal length will always stay the same regardless of the crop factor. A 300mm lens stays a 300mm lens despite the crop factor which makes it have an angle of view of a 450mm lens. So surely if you shoot a 300mm lens on a DX body you will only need to keep shutter speeds as fast as 1/300 (not 1/450) of a second to avoid image blur? If someone clever can clarify this for me, I would appreciate it. I often see people giving what I feel is misinformation on this subject.
