    Unscientific IBIS test

    Unscientific IBIS test
    Below is a casual IBIS test conducted on my messy desk. Both exposures are 1/2 second, the first is one shot with IBIS on (only one taken) and the second is the best of 15 subsequent shots with IBIS off. I shot with IBIS off 15 times to try and get the best I could accomplish hand held. steadier hands might do better, but that would be true of both. The first 2 are the originals downsized, the second are extreme crops (200+ %ish), no editing beyond the crops. The lens is the Nikon Z 50mm 1.8s, pinpoint focus point which I tried to keep in the circle of the 6.

    Off (best of 15 continuous shots)

    Despite being unscientific, it is the reality of what I can expect when shooting.

    That looks pretty good to me given that you will be rarely shooting at that shutter speed. You have a steadier hand than I do but that IBIS still locks it down.

    I've seen some decent 1 second shots on other IBIS systems. Comes in handy if you like the smooth water effect and dont have a tripod with you.

    Has anyone ever compared IBIS only vs lens VR only?

    Very interesting to see the results, Rick! Although I don't have a Z body, it's still nice to see what they can do.

    And this is a question I was wondering myself. That would also be an interesting comparison.

    IBIS works great and its an asset to any camera, what sticks in my craw is the online attitude that to be any good a camera must have it, for the majority of users lens VR will suffice.

    I'll bet it can be found somewhere. Once I have a lens with VR I'll give it a try. May be a while, I'm waiting on either the 500mm 5.6 or the upcoming 100-400 s lens.

    That is an interesting idea Woody. I have never done it. I feel my photos are sharper, but it is purely anecdotal. The only way to test this though is to compare it to another camera because the setting of the lens determines if IBIS will work if the lens has VR.

    The way the system works for the IBIS to work the VR on the lens must be turned on, and if the VR is on you will use VR and IBIS together. I think it would take using two cameras to do that kind of test.
