I don't have a balcony either.

I've done the bookshelf/gro-light thing with herbs and flowers - with good results - but it's impossible to grown produce in small pots.

As evidenced by a strong man straining his biceps. But it'll stop a race car in its tracks with no motion blur.

No yard? don't call it a garden. Because it's not.

But yeah, you can grow lots of different, even edible stuff in pots.

The high effective ISO capabilities and low noise of recent cameras makes that lens a bit silly. I guess he took the money out of the banana stand to pay for it.

That's a function of the camera, not the lens. Even a night race will have plenty of light.

That's a silly photo, anyway. You always mount a lens that size on a tripod using the mount that's set into the bottom of the lens barrel (the flat section under his straining left hand).

Yeah, no matter how fast it is or how good it's motion compensation technology (does it have motion compensation?), trying to handheld a tube that big is not very smart.
Think of a fishing pole. a little motion of the hand sends the tip of the pole in a wide ark.
telephoto lens does kinda the same thing.

I agree it'd be much better to use a tripod.
