    +1, been doing it for years.

    Hi, ZulSim. First and foremost, welcome to the forum.

    The rules are, there are no rules but the ones that actually work for you.


    The advantage with digital is that you are now able to push the envelope more.

    When much younger and, with enough care, I could on many an occasion get good shots as slow as 1/20 hand held.

    Over the years, that crept up to 1/1000 and is still climbing.

    Just remember, each and every situation is borderline. We each need to test ourselves to find personal limits where slow speed movement becomes an issue

    I suspect Gary is referring to whether you're panning or not rather than on whether its a subject that's moving in the frame.

    The function of IS is to compensate for camera shake. I don't see how it can cater for subject movement. The subject can only be "frozen" by high shutter speed which itself would take care of camera shake.

    Actually I think it depends pretty much entirley on subject.

    If subject is static then I have IBIS on, unless shutter speed is faster than about 1/1000 sec.

    If subject is moving then I sent IBIS off.

    Thanks. I will keep IS 1 turned on as recommended by Dave. In his Guide Book, Gary Friedman mentioned that IS 2, IS 3 & IS Auto are used for panning.

    I agree with Dave. I've tried IS1, 3 and Off mainly in motorsports with the E-M1 and the 100-300 and 40-150 kit and Pro, and I can't see a consistent difference, so I leave it at IS1 so I don't forget to turn it back on

    EDITED
    You could use IS3 for horizontal shake only, but there be may some vertical as well so maybe leave it on anyhow. It depends how the photos turn out. Check for vertical blur with it on & if it's there then try IS3 instead as it could be over compensating.
