Camera Shake with Digital Cameras
The rule of thumb for a 35mm camera is that shutter speed should not be slower than 1/(focal length) to avoid camera shake.
My Canon EOS300D camera has a sensor size about 60% that of a 35mm camera. Therefore I would use a 31mm lens to get the same field of view as a 50mm lens on a 35mm camera. Should I therefore use a minimum (handheld) shutter speed of 1/30th sec or 1/50th sec with the 31mm lens to avoid shake?
That rule of thumb is more of a guideline than a rule, and varies with the individual.
Try different shutter speeds and compare the results. You will soon learn what shutter speed you can comfortably shoot hand-held.
Another general rule - is not to hand hold any shot under 1/250th sec.
