Downside to anti-shake setting?
on Dec 23, 2007 at 1:02:55 pm

Is there a downside to useing the "anti-shake" setting on the XH-A1?

I had done some filming on a ship, where vibration was occassionally a problem. Since I was filming from a tripod, I had the "anti-shake" setting turned off.

Will the "anti-shake" setting help with vibrations? Or, is it more designed to compensate for hand-filming movements?

If you have the "anti-shake" setting turned on for tripod shots that have no movement (no vibration, etc), do you give up any quality?

I think the answer is no problems. The stabilized lens system on the Canon is optical and there is no image degradation when using it. It will help eliminate some vibrations as well as hand held shaking. I use it shooting from helicopters often. The only time I turn it off is when I'm shooting from a tripod and intend to do pan and tilt moves. (especially the panning moves) the stabilizer treats the panning motion as something to correct and you will find that you see an overshoot correction when you stop your panning motion. The lens system is trying to remove the motion. This is the only problem I've experienced.

Frank, that makes sense and is consistent with what I have been told.

I appreciate your reply. Thanks!

Turning off OIS when you don't need it will also save battery power.
