I shoot a D1x and seems like about have the photos I shoot with a moving subject end up blurry. Is the focus system that poor in comparison to the F5 or has my F5 just spoiled me.

I shot a bunch at the park of my son Sunday at 80-200, 2.8, ISO 500, and shutter speeds from 1/80 to 1/500. I could understand some of the low shutter speed images being blury. But cmon, at 1/500th of a second I can only attribute the blurryness to lack of focus lock on.

I never ever (o.k. once in while) got a bad focus shot with my F5 under basically the exact same conditions.

Anyone else using Digital seeming to get blurry images at shutter speeds you can handhold with film?

And by the way, I have noticed I have to shoot most of my images with flash at 1/125 instead of 1/60 to keep from getting blurred images.

Is Nikon cheating on the rating of the ccd which would mean 1/60 is really about 1/30 etc

I have noticed the camera requires an extra stop compared to my Sekonic meter. In other words, if flash output is measured at F8 for film on the Sekonic, my D1x wants F5.6 to be properly lit, which makes me think the ccd is over rated..

I have similiar results as well. I have an F5, and the focus lock-onis tack sharp..but not with the D1X.

I thought it might be my camera, but not now.

Yes, that does seem to be a pattern I have noticed. Of course, I am affected by the increased focal length of the zoom I am using, given the multiplier effect on the CCD.

It seems less noticeable when I move in and don't zoom in as much, so it is not just the digital aspect, but the focal length as well. Have been having similar effects when using the F3HP with a newer, longer lens as well.

Of course, I'm also getting older. (grin)

Even CCD's in the same make and model of camera will be different. Recently at a Photoshop class, the instructor measured the ISO of some of the students cameras. There was almost a two stop difference between some of the cameras. So much for standardization!

It's nice to know that, even in the digital world, some things work just like in the analog world. At some point, every film photographer is going to have to figure out for himself the actual rating of his film as necessary for his equipment/working method, and apparently this is just as true in the digital world.

I had the same problem with the D1 especially using the auto settings....I found that if you set focus to center and lead the shot pressing the button halfway it will "lock" the focus and allow for moving shots... I have some done in this fashion of motorcycles at high speeds....just have to dig thru about 5 gig worth of files to find them again...
