Just wondering what kind of advice the pros can give to me and others who are just starting out in order to get the sharpest pics possible. Lately mine have seemed a little soft and I know the 70-200 2.8 USM IS is capable of better, so I figure it must be something with my technique. How does everyone else go about freezing the action of a fast moving object like an airplane? Obviously a fast shutter and fast aperture and fast film. I assume just about everyone is handholding since it's pretty hard to track a plane on a tripod. Are most of you doing a sort of pan technique and moving the camera while pressing the shutter? Or do you hold the camera still and wait for the subject to come into the frame before pressing the shutter? And if you've got any other words of wisdom to help your fellow man let's hear them!
Oh yeah and one more question.....is digital inherently sharper than film for the same shutter/aperture/ISO setting?
