    If you are a beginning photographer your camera does not have an image stabilization feature is blur something that can be taken care of post-production... I'm choosing a camera and my fear is that without image stabilization I do not have the steady hands to capture a sharp image on a consistent basis... Your thoughts please:).

    Hmmm. I'm not sure what you're trying to say. Are you saying that if I take a blurry picture I won't be able to "sharpen it up" using an editing software?

    In short, No. Blurry shots can't be corrected in post, that's not to say you NEED in body IS, you have VR lenses, shoot at the right shutter speed to avoid camera shake (Change ISO / Aperture to compensate), use a tripod or monopod, a tree to lean against... There are many ways around it if you have shaky hands ..

    "Sharpening" is applied along all axes. Camera blur only happens on one axis.

    Getting a tripod is possibly the soundest course of action.

    Or, at least, a monopod.

    If you are choosing a camera, get a system with image stabilization. It is hard to find a decent system that does not have it. You can work around not having it but why would you choose not to have it.

    My beef is that most of the 2-lens kits that I've seen, have a non-stabilized long zoom. :(
    Of the 2 lenses, the long zoom is the one that needs stabilization the most.

    Edit: Assuming you do know how to hold a camera but still shake >>> Pentax K-70 if you're on a budget. There are many others to choose from, just throwing that out there. If you still get some blur then maybe it won't be so much blur that Adobe Photoshop can't eliminate the remainder 100%. Just my newbian 2 cents worth. Seems like the logical thing to do if you ask me.
