Anyone have tips for using the in-body image stabilization in Olympus cameras for shooting video.  I assume the algorithms are optimized for land-based use (i.e. hand trembling rather than water motion).


Any hints as to which mode to use? There are usually at least two modes, sometimes 3 (called, appropriately enough, 1, 2,  and 3).  Should I disable it entirely?


I'm referring to the earlier bodies, not the 5-axis IBIS seen in the E-M* models.

None of the original IBIS's in the EPL series of cameras is good for any video too be honest, as its software based, not a sensor based one. The sensor based IBIS only works with still photo modes

Thanks for the response Rich.


I just found this (http://www.mu-43.com...ead.php?t=20618) that makes it clear for the E-PM1 (which I have).  I swear I googled before posting the original question ! :-)


I guess I'll just have to learn good technique then.
