how effective A900 image stabilizer
Mar 6, 2013

Hi All,

I need some help here. I have just purchased a use A900, I own A900 about 3 years ago and I sold it. Now I just pick up another used one. But with this used A900, I found that the image stabilizer is not very effective. I have use the following lens to do the test

sony 28-75 f2.8

at 75mm shutter 60 f2.8  I only got 50% blur free pictures, and when I turn off the stabilizer, I got very similar result

sigma 70 210 f2.8

at 70mm shutter 80 f2.8. whether stabilizer on or off. I got some blurry pictures

Only when I shoot at 210mm at shutter < 20, I start to see the stabilizer effective.

With my previous A900, I did not recall I got some many blurry picture when the stabilizer is turned on.

So I am suspecting if the image stabilizer is defective. So that I need to return the camera. So for those people still with the A900. how is your unit image stabilizer performs?

Thanks
