    So i've heard of, and seen these things online, but never really understood what they were. What i'm talking about is some sort of vibrating ring that attaches to your lens . I dont know if they're used on still cameras, or if it would just be a video camera... anyone know anything about this?

    Are we talking in innuendo here?

    just kidding

    The only thing I can think about is the ultrasonic ring motors that use ultrasonic vibrations to focus. that's built into canon USM lenses though, no attachment.

    and again, a thread that doesn't live up to it's expectations...:sexywink:

    no sorry, never heard of those rings. Vibrations used to focus? That sounds odd.

    My first google hit for lens vibrating ring included the line [SIZE=-1]The Vibrating Ring is designed to be non-intrusive for both partners ... [/SIZE][SIZE=-1];)

    Perhaps the OP is talking about an attachment that removes the vibration made when the mirror springs up as the shutter is opened. I've never known that to be a problem but I suppose if you need really sharp images for some serious macro work it could be useful.

    Or have I just invented something for a problem which doesn't actually exist? (If so - better market it quick, someone's bound to buy it...)

    but therefore we have mirror lockup! which i use often with medium time exposures (with 1/30 s or 30s it does not really matter ;) )
