Camera shake, which can occur when you're not holding / supporting the camera correctly, can really spoil your shots, however it's a problem that can be easily fixed.
Samsung NX cameras have advanced technology to help them prevent camera shake as much as is possible, but there are some times when a bit of care by the user can go a long way. Here are 5 quick suggestions on how you can limit or even remove the shake that blurs your shots completely.
1. Shutter Speeds
If you're working handheld, try and use the fastest shutter speed possible to minimise the risk of blur. If you're working in low light, try upping the ISO a little to enable you to shoot with faster shutter speeds. Samsung Smart NX cameras perform really well at higher ISO settings so you won't need to worry about pushing the ISO to around 800.
2. Use a Tripod
This may seem like an obvious response, but sometimes it may not be your first thought to use a tripod. A tripod will make a big difference to images if camera shake is a recurring issue. If you're travelling light, even a small tripod / stand that you can keep attached to the bottom of the camera will be handy for placing the camera down without worrying about scratching the bottom.
3. Remote Release
A remote release will enable you to trigger the shutter without physically pressing the shutter button and causing minute vibrations which can cause shake. Samsung Smart NX cameras also allow you to trigger the camera using a connected smartphone or tablet device, which will work just the same as the remote release to stop vibrations.
4. Stance and Breathing
The way you hold your camera can have a big effect on the amount of blur caused by your own movement. Hold the camera with two hands close to your body and make sure your feet are shoulder width apart. With your elbows tucked in, you'll stand a better chance of capturing a steady image. Holding your breath and pressing the shutter can also help to keep you steady.
5. Use Objects For Support
You may find leaning against a tree or a wall useful to steady your images. Do use the built in level if you do this however to make sure that your horizon stays straight, as leaning can cause wonky images.
