Steady Cam and Tripod with or without image stablizer?

Hi I was wondering if I should turn on the image stabilizer while the camera is mounted to a tripod or steadycam? I've heard the stabilizer will make the image shakier while on a tripod. Is this true and does this apply to the steady cam as well?

By the way this is in reference to the Panasonic HVX 200

If you have a tripod, you don't need the stabilizer.

It will cause you trouble NOT when the camera is steady, but when you do a movement, like a tilt. The stabilizer will try to get your image steady when you start the movement, until it can't, so you'll get an ugly jump in your movement.

This will happen differently on different cameras. It depends on the velocity of the movement.

I don't know about steady cams, but it should be the same.

I hope this helps

Always turn it off when on sticks.
Turn it on for hand-held.

Thanks for this, I kept the Optical Image Stabilizer off. The footage came out fairly well.

Best,

Thomas
