This up close video of a Harris's Sparrow shows the Vibration Reduction (VR) technology at work in the Nikon 85mm EDG VR Fieldscope. The first 15 seconds are without VR on and then you can see how much more stable the shot is after turned on. Cool stuff! I shot this with a Nikon D7100 attached to the scope with the FSA-L2 DSLR adapter. Towards the end of the video the bird got TOO close to focus on!
