If equiped, the Stabilizer Mode switch allows you to control how Image Stabilization is applied by the lens.


The Stabilizer Mode switch has two options, Mode 1 and 2.

Mode 1: Corrects vibrations in all diretions. It is mainly effective for shooting still subjects.
Mode 2: Compensates for vertical camera shake during following shots in a a horrizontal direction and compensates for horizontal camera shake during following shots in a vertical direction.
