PostPosted: Tue Nov 25, 2008 8:09 am 
Hi everybody, i have a EFS 18-55 IS lens and it just have a single mode for IS (ie IS on/off).

Yes you can pan even with only one mode. I myself just turn IS off when panning in lenses with only one mode, but got good results with IS turned on too. You just have to hold firmly as much as you can :wink:

Hey, thanx Venom,

But does it really help to pan with IS on. (i mean as compared to without stablization)

Actually I m struggling a lot with panning with or with out IS (and i dont own a tri or mono). :(

Have not yet got any acceptable result till now.

Do you have any tips. Whats the catch here. :?

Well, I'm not the right person to answer this because I'm trying to get better on panning as well :roll:
But I got some tips that may help you too:

1- Hold your breath while panning. It helps you not to shake.
2- Try with IS on and off. See what works best for you and use it. You may find IS helps or difficult your shots.
3- A good technique I learned that can really help:

- If you're right handed, hold your camera firmly with the right hand
- Put your left hand on your right shoulder
- if your lens are long enough, you can rest it on your left elbow

I think this technique works better for me than holding the lens with my left hand.
Besides that, it's all about practicing, practicing, practicing. A bit of luck can help you a lot too :wink:
