At what speed should I try to maintain to make certain that camera shake is not really probable?

    Thanks!

    The answer is YES, 1/30th is mostly too slow for my GA645. I have not been able to do any of the testing described in this thread to check my camera's focus. But I got back from the lab 6 rolls of film today with 4 of the rolls being high speed 400 or 1600 film. MUCH better sharpness. It has to be due to the higher shutter speeds. 1/45 and higher speeds lost almost 100% better. Only a few throw aways.

    I guess I have to shoot a lot less 100 speed film. Makes me sad as I LOVE Acros film.

    If you have a camera repair shop , you can have a test for 1/30 speed. And I am more nervous than yesteryears and I was taking 1/8 damn sharp with my Leica IIF and IIIC , 20 years ago. Now its too hard. I think you will have more success with your camera after a long holiday.

    Your color shots look well-enough focused to me at these sizes too.

    This is conjecture, but I'd guess your problem is less shutter speed and more a combination of missed focus (your B&W marketplace) and a simple unrealistic estimation of how much depth of field you're going to get out of a 65mm lens when shooting 645.
