Q2 - 1/15th Handheld & Sharp

Recommended Posts

In multiple threads people have brought up the issue with a 47MP in that you won't be able to get sharp shots hand held..

I'm not sure what the conditions are for this argument, and I've never shared the same concern, but I just happened upon a 1/15th photo I took last night, and it's sharp.

In the first image, individual hairs on the gent on the right's head are razor sharp.  So much for the claim that you can't hand hold a 47mp camera at 1/15 and get sharp results.  @Daniel, this image is outstanding.

That image and this short video make me want a Q2 even more than I already did:     https://lfi-online.de/ceemes/en/blog/video-best-of-q-1850.html

The only problem at this point - other than availability - is the $5K USD price of admission... 🙄

But, not everybody has the same stability of hand, nor the slow-shutterspeed shooting technique required.

You can zoom in further on your own sloppy handholding would be closer to the truth then.

I've taken razor sharp (it was at a high frequency sign at night) handheld at 1/8 second with the Q. I suspect you can do the same with the Q2.
