    Set the camera on aperture priority mode, turn on macro mode, close the aperture to f/8.0 or higher, turn on the flash... this method works good on compact cameras but on DSLRs, you need an optically stabilised lens or a macro light...

    Recently I was reading a pdf file about how pro's shoot... I couldn't believe the thing I read there!... It actually said "The pro's always shoot with a tripod... Even in daylight"...
    After I discussed this matter with my brother (a pro photographer!)... He explained that Vibration reduction systems always apply a minute amount of shake to the picture!... Want to see how?... I'll explain!...
    Ok... So the VR (vibration reduction or image stabilizer) is designed to compensate a shake for example around 1 mm (you shake the camera 1mm, the camera counteracts 1mm so you'll have a sharp photo... Yeah 100% useful in theory)... but what happens if the VR system "can" detect less vibration but only compensates the usual 1mm?!... You have a 0.1mm shake, then a 1mm counter-shake... And at the end... The result is?!... 0.9mm pure shake (by the VR!) resulting a "NON"-stack-sharp photo!!!... em... get it?... (well maybe not...)

    It makes sense to me. I have never read this before. Thanks for the information.

    A flash will help reduce motion blur for the humming bird some what though i don't know if it will stop it completely cos them birds are too fast. a higher flash sync speed will also help. honestly though, i do like the blurred wings as they give me a sense of motion....

    forgot to mention, as far as i know, higher iso speeds on them dslr will also create noise in the picture.....it is a case of what is acceptable to the photographer....
