Default Image Stabilizer - FZ35

Can somebody explain to me the difference between Stabilizer Mode 1 and Mode 2? I know what it says in the manual, but I can't understand the advantage of one setting over the other. Thanks...!

Saly from what understand this is how it works...

In Mode 2 for still shots it compensates only when shutter button is half pressed so more than likely you have already composed and then it stabilizes before you shoot...great for still shots...

In Mode 1 it compensates all the time will continually try and stabilize the photo as you pan with the camera following a bif, child running, or race car, etc

Most Canon pro lens have this option also Saly...but Canon is set up for only compensating up/down in Mode 1 and is for shooting panning shots...Mode 2 on Canon is up/down & side/side for Still Shots...

...and why is it so important to de-activate the system, when we use a tripod? Cant' it recognize that there is no motion at all? (motion=0)a.

From what I understand when you press the shutter and the system is on it could adjust ever so slightly degrading the photo minimally, but with it off and on the tripod shooting shots of the moon, etc it would be stabilized fully anyway so no need to chance the OIS trying to correct...I always shoot 10 sec 3 shots anyway and leave it on as the wind is always blowing in Texas where I live...

Hmmm, so as a rule of thumb (if there is such a thing in photography), I should use Mode 2 for stills and Mode 1 for subjects that maybe moving, people snapshots, etc.

Thanks LTZ!
