Hi,

Gordon mentioned in his night photography workshop to 'temporarily switch off anti-shake or IS when using a tripod because they can actually introduce wobbling as they attempt to counteract something which isn’t there'.

Could the same happen while shooting hand-held?
When shooting hand-held, should you always leave IS on or only turn it on when you actually need it?

In-lens and in-body stabilisation is there to help reduce shake of the camera caused by shaky hands. It does so by moving certain parts of either lens or the body.

yes i know what it does. I'm just wondering whether when shooting hand-held and having the IS on will have the same effect as shooting with a tripod and having the IS on.

Hi Yanacek, you should have the stabilisation activated when shooting handheld - that's what it's designed for.

thanks Gordon,
I suppose even if you had the world's most steady hands, it wouldn't replace a tripod so IS will always be useful.. thanks for the help
