    So yesterday I figured out my issues with the 80-400VR and it comes down to modifying my technique of shooting. They key is to keep the VR active and give it time to kick in. I am used to shooting instantly and with VR when you depress the button you have to give it time to kick in and start adjusting. I do not like it but now that I know the problem I can work around it. Out of the 500+ images I shot yesterday almost all were keepers and I came away very happy with my new technique.

    These are some of the International flights I shot yesterday at Toronto International Airport. It was –25C with the wind chill but the lighting was excellent and that is all that matters…and the fact the camera worked in that kind of cold :)

    These are all really good, but what are you talking about when you say "VR"?

    Nikon term of Image Stabilized. Vibration Reduction. It was a learning curve but I got it.
