Hello,

do you think we should turn ON or OFF the IS (image stabilzation) when flying a full frame DSLR on a steadicam.

i would like to use the Tamron 24-70 2.8 VC on a 5DMKIII

someone told me that the IS is not useful because the steadicam eleminate micro vibration...

what do you think?

thank you

IS on DSLR lenses is not made for motion but stills. Don't use it, if you pan, the image will jump to get back to the center. None of the pro motion pictures lens have IS for a reason, it doesn't work.
If your image is shaky, you're doing it wrong.
