I've heard of people taking great low light pictures (think the foggy streets of Paris at night) using IS.
Here's an example from Luminous Landscape shooting @ 1/20s in a dark street with IS: The camera compensates for 'shakes' just fine, all static objects remain sharp, but not the man walking by (look at the tiles below his shoes) - for this you need the shutter speed, or a short-burst of a flash to freeze an action/movement:





-> If one already uses a higher shutter speed (or a flash) to freeze an action then is IS redundant??? :G :lol: :-)

also while looking at those nice iso 3200 images i am shooting at considerably lower iso like 1000 indoors and 200 outdoors. i really don't like popcorn with my pictures.

IS on a tripod is not good due to it does like movement and tends to shudder when 0 movement is present . thus causing a less accurate image.
And the popcorn is where?



I can make a very acceptable 13 X 19 out of this...

All you've shown us is a nice outdoor shot in bright sunlight with a shutter speed of 1/640 and an indoor picture with flash, which is what froze the action... Show us a NON-Flash picture of indoor action where your miracle IS froze the action... Let's see your ISO 1000 shot from the local high school gym without flash...

BTW, NHL great example...

awesome shot, Saginaw.

Too bad you couldn't have kicked that photographer right behind her.

I referred to you in an earlier post on this thread. Did you read it? lol.
