Hi gadgetnut,

I'm pretty much an empiricist -- tried it both ways -- and found no real difference. I don't bother to turn it off. . . but if I were to be taking a critical set of shots -- I'd bracket, shoot both Jpeg and RAW, and take a series wiht SR on and off -- just to be sure I get something I can use, as Murphy's Law hovers over my head in particular.

I've heard about this since I first got a stabilized camera (Panny FZ1), but haven't found any practical validity with any of the cameras that I've had -- I suggest you try it yourself and develop your own answer.

Hi Scott. What concerns me is that even if I can't see a difference in the photo, it might actually be harming the camera in some way. I guess I will just have to try to remember to turn it off.

Gadgetnut, I had a Panasonic FZ30 prior to this camera, K10D, and I never turned the Image Stabilization off. I've never turned it off on the K10D either and have not found any problems with the pictures when it's on a tripod ! I might mention that it's a good idea to check to make sure it's on, (K10D), before using it as I've found that handling and putting it into a case can accidently turn the switch off ! This has happened on two different occasions now! Jim
