View Full Version : IBIS visible on screen?

Not sure which forum to use for this, but here goes.

I presume the stabilisation should be obvious on the screen (or EVF) when operative. Just as it is in an optical VF with lens (but not body) stabilisation on DSLRs.

So any wobble I see when framing is what the IBIS hasn't dealt with?

Have you got your camera set so that IBIS operates on half-press?
If not it will only operate on full shutter button press and you won't see it on screen when framing the shot

Good point, I don't know. How do I find out and set this funcion?

With the lens based VR I'm used to it took a fraction of a second for the VR to settle the image. If the Oly IS kicks in only when you press the shutter button, there can't be much time for the IS to do its job.

Don't worry about it Rens........it just works! Don't ask me how though.

It is a feature of in-camera sensor anti-vibration, the Sony Alpha DSLR's are the same.

Frankly I would rather have in-camera VR than lens VR as any lens used whether with VR or not still enjoys the hugely reduced shake. However be sure to switch off any VR in the lens first, if it has it. ;)

Page 87, Custom Settings, Cog C (Release), Halfway Release with IS.
Turn it on and the image stabilisation will kick in whilst the shutter is half pressed.
Very useful when using the zoom focus or even just at at 300mm.

Thanks, done this. I'd have thought focus could be more accurate with a stable image, too. Not that I've seen this suggested anywhere.

If you are focusing on a small target I'm sure it would be. Viewing with IS enebled makes a huge difference to me. :)
