I was wondering if anyone uses the self timer for slow speed hand held shots? I have been doing with my FM3a when I'm breaking the focal length/shutter speed rule when I have no other options to get a shot, most of the time I've been getting good results (looking at the 6x4 prints). I haven't seen it mentioned as a way of getting sharper pictures until I was given a original Nikkormat manual a couple of days ago .... Under the shutter release section it goes on to say .."For hand held exposures slower that 1/30, greater sharpness can be obtained if the shutter is tripped by means of the self timer".... While I try not to break the focal/shutter rule if I don't have to I am impressed with what can be done with the self timer and breathing control.
