Re: Tripod use and IBIS

Does the answer to this question depend on whether one is using a tripod for long telephoto shots or long exposures?

For example, I'd have thought that if it's purely a question of keeping the image stable with a long lens then with short exposures it shouldn't make any difference whether IBIS is switched on or off.

But if using the OM-D for night photography and 10+ second exposures, does the issue of IBIS competing with vibrations etc. become more pronounced? Should IBIS always be switched off for long exposures, regardless of whether the camera is on a tripod or simply sitting on a solid surface?

I also don't quite understand why would IBIS "dance around" if on a tripod in the first place?

Thanks in advance for explanations.
