Re: Does Image Stabilization work when shooting movies?

Harry- I can vouch for the new canon 70-200 is 2's stabilization as being nothing short of amazing. If you turn it on and off, you WILL see a difference. You can easily shoot beautiful, smooth video zoomed in all the way at 200mm with is on. We're talking broadcast-quality stuff. On the other hand, IS on my cheap kit lens doesn't do much at all... but enough that I notice if I look closely. If you can't tell at all, something is up, I'm guessing.

Though... I thought that was all happening in the lens, no? What would returning your camera do? Or is that a dumb question?

Re: Does Image Stabilization work when shooting movies?

I know this is an old thread but I´m guessing from the conversation the T2i doesn´t have IN-body stabilization, right? Is there any canon DSLR that has it?

Re: Does Image Stabilization work when shooting movies?

Canon does not currently believe in a "one-size-fits-all" type of IS.
Therefore none of their DSLR bodies have it. Instead they employ
different types of IS technology among their IS-equipped lenses,
depending on a variety of factors for any given lens.

That is a bummer when you want to use adapted lenses.

Re: Does Image Stabilization work when shooting movies?

I have become a firm believer of IS while shooting video.

I have the 24-70 f2.8 L USM lens and it was tough to handhold and get smooth shots. Same scene from the boat, using a 24-105 f4 L IS USM lens, the results were good. When I used my new 70-200 f2.8 L IS II USM, it gave the best and the sharpest results. A short review here: Canon 70-200 f2.8 L IS II USM Review

My 400mm f2.8 L IS USM when not used with a stable stills tripod (Gitzo GT 3530 plus Wimberly V2 head) , and while pointing it towards the canopy I found IS was causing problems. The image was jumping more. Same lens with my OConnor 1030 HDS fluid head and Sachtler tripod, and pointed upwards, doesn't give problems.

I don't really like IS, in some cases when I've used it, it looks more shaky.

I just prefer to use a shoulder rig and try and be a steady as possible.
