That is on reason some ibis camera will disable the IS when the shutter speed dips to 1 sec. IS can cause more problems down there.

Kelby suggests disabling IS when shooting from a tripod for just that reason.

Yup, there is a point when IS becomes a shake issue instead of a help. And that form my experience is about 1/2 to 1 sec.

Sometime one might not have a tripod handy (like coming back from diner)

It all depends on the focal length:
24mm is 1/20s
12mm is 1/10s
Give it a stop or two and you are almost there...

-> One really needs to enlarge or pixels pip to see any shake
