As per the title really. I'm struggling with the Cinemagraph function. Either I don't get it.. (which is a high probability) or I'm doing it wrong..
Has anyone got any good constructive input on how to get the best out of this function or better still, any examples?

I've got a short review coming up later today on Cinemagraph. It's a decent animated gif creator but I found image quality to be inconsistent at times... while minor camera movements won't trigger the "you've moved the camera too much" error, they will slightly blur things. The app takes 60 frames in a matter of seconds so a steady hand helps.
We're also working on a tripod mount roundup that might be helpful in steadying the camera for these type shots.George Ponder

Thanks all but I'm still a little lost. To me, the majority of cinemagraphs may as well just be video shots.
I've been thinking how to get the best out of the function. Is it two independently moving objects?
Would motion blur on one subject and the other subject still moving give the result I'm after?

The link to the body building forums has good examples.

40 Examples of stunning Cinemagraphs One of my favorites is the one of the swingset. I tried a simple one the other day of getting a snapshot of moving traffic as well as people walking on a sidewalk. There was a light breeze that was blowing some foliage that I had hoped to "stop" the traffic and people while animating the foliage. I didn't have a good handle on the program so it came out bad....keep trying though. fwiw.
