    I'm pretty sure it was somewhere between 1/50 and 1/25.

    Usually you can hand hold at 1/(insert focal length here). So say a 200mm lens can be held at 1/250th of a second.

    Sometimes I can get away using 1/30 for 200mm (equiv.) shots with an acceptable amount of blur. You just need proper technique to do it.

    True, but if you're shooting a person or animal, you really shouldn't go any longer than 1/80s, irrespective of focal length.

    And as discussed in the Sticky at the top of this new forum, The Photography Thread is hereby closing. It's been a good friend to me and others. Long Live the Photography & Cameras forum.
