Nikon Z7: Examples, Handheld with IBIS, Very Slow Shutter: Lundy Canyon (Zeiss Otus 28/1.4)

See my Sony mirrorless wishlist and Nikon mirrorless wishlist and Canon mirrorless wishlist.

This page collects examples at very low shutter speeds, as low as 1/3 second, all shot handheld with IBIS. Most were a success the first (and only) try some took more than one try; notes are included. The idea here is showing that using optimal handheld technique along with IBIS greatly expands the shooting envelope. It was very dim late dusk.

All examples were shot with the Zeiss Otus 28mm f/1.4 APO-Distagon. The Zeiss Otus 28/1.4 APO is a very large and heavy lens. Mounted on the Nikon Z7 with the Nikon FTZ lens adapter, the 'rig' needs to be support by the lens and adapter. The mass probably works in its favor for slow shutter speeds, but it is a little awkward to hold, and that works against it.

Includes a best-practices discussion. All images up to full camera resolution.

Below, numerous freak rock slides wiped out big chunks of aspen in Lundy Canyon, sometime in the winter of 2017/2018. Thick layers of large rocks with mud made a slurry that wiped out and buried things; this slide is one of the larger ones, the next image is one of the smaller! Having visited Lundy Canyon for 20 years, I’ve never seen anything remotely similar in scope and sheer destructive power. What was excellent topsoil (for this altitude) is now jumbled rocks. This rockslide (one of many) actually made it to the creek and dammed it, raising the water level about two feet.
