Hereof, iS Image Stabilization important in Lens?
The important thing to remember is that imagestabilization doesn't change the necessary exposure. Itis useful when the subject can be captured at slower shutterspeeds. Optical image stabilization is particularly usefulwhen shooting slow or static scenes hand held by mitigating theneed for a tripod.
Similarly, do Sony lenses have image stabilization? When mirrorless electronic viewfinder technology isused, lens-based stabilization just does notmake much sense anymore. Small compact lenses such asNikon 1 10mm f/2.8 pancake will never feature imagestabilization, so other cameras with in-camera IS havean advantage when using such lenses.
Then, does image stabilization make a difference?
Image stabilization only allows you the abilityto capture sharp images of static subjects at slower speeds.Moving objects will be equally blurry or streaky—and in somecases blurrier or shakier with the IS turned on. There are twotypes of image stabilization (IS): lens based and incamera.
How many stops does Image Stabilization give?
To be fair, there are professionals that can shoot downto 1/15th of a second with image stabilization enabled andstill shoot photos without camera shake. Many of theseimage stabilized lenses and systems allow for up to three tofour stops of stabilization.
