ghosting effect

Good set of pics that demonstrate conditions were IS will come in handy, the bird pics don`t really demonstrate anything at all at 1/800 sec.

Here are two, the first using IS with a 200mm legacy lens with fill flash, hand held, if there had been any camera shake there would have been a sort of ghosting effect.

And unlike the slow shutter speed situations people are talking about in this thread, ghosting can occur at high shutter speeds like 1/125, as I have recently discovered using my GF3's bounce flash handheld.

But forcing the shutter speed to up to 1/250 as a solution to ghosting forces me to compensate somewhere else on ISO, aperture, etc. in a way that negatively affects my photo.

I use the flash for indoor shots at home of my family, so a tripod is not an option for a shot opportunity that only exists for a few moments.
