Fortunately, the AF-S NIKKOR 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR features Nikon’s second-generation Vibration Reduction technology to ensure every handheld photo and HD video is razor-sharp. It also lets you shoot at shutter speeds 4-times slower than otherwise possible, a major advantage in low-light situations where a slower shutter speed means brighter, richer images.
