Did you all have a chance to see the beautiful full harvest moon the other night? Try as I might, I just can't take a good full moon picture. It looks great in the viewfinder but ends up looking like a spotlight in the finished photo. Even though I had my camera on the tripod, it still shook when I pressed the shutter button.
My old Pentax K-1000's shutter button has a place where you can screw in a remote shutter cable, and I've been able to take much better and less blurry photos with that. However the new cameras don't have a place to screw in the remote cable, not even on my Pentax Z-XM. Plus I can adjust the aperture and shutter speed on the K-1000, something I can't do with my digital camera.
