Using the Image Stabilizer Modes - EF-S17-85mm f/4.5-5.6 IS USM


Using the Image Stabilizer Mode

The Image Stabilizer cannon compensate for a blurred shot caused by a subject that moved

Set the STABILIZER switch to OFF when you are taking pictures using the BULB setting (long exposures). If the STABILIZER switch is set to ON, the image stabilizer function may introduce errors.

The Image Stabilizer might not be fully effective in the following cases:

You move the camera for a panned shot.

You shoot while riding on a bumpy road

Compared to using a normal non-IS lens, fewer shot can be taken when you use an Image Stabilizer lens because more power is consumed

The Image Stabilizer operates for about two seconds even when your finger is off the shutter button. Do not remove the lens while the stabilizer is in operation. This will cause a malfunction.

When using a tripod, the Image Stabilizer should be turned off to save battery power.
The stabilizer is equally effective for hand-held photography and photography with a monopod.
The Image Stabilizer function also operates when the lens is used with Extension Tube EF12 II or EF25II
If you set the camera's Custom Function to change the assigned button to operate the AF, the Image Stabilizer will operate when you press the newly assigned AF button.
