Turn off your VR with Flash

Bill says he was shooting some photos with his Nikon 70-200 2.8 VR lens and SB900 flash for fill.  It was a semi outdoor shoot under a cover.  Looking at the photos Bill noticed an odd blurring or camera shake.  He was using the VR and could not figure why it was happening so he switched to his 85 1.4 lens and finished the shoot.  Bill says at the time, he didn’t give it much thought afterwards until he read on a forum about VR lenses and flashes. He discovered that, because the VR is moving, the elements it can cause an odd blurring when also using a flash.  So, turn off your VR when using flash.
