At air shows I shoot propeller planes at slow shutter speeds around 1/180, 1/160, 1/125. Helicopters slower, 1/80. Having IS set to mode 2 is a benefit.

Then the jets will fly and I shoot at 1/1000 or faster. At those speeds I don't need IS, but I leave the lens set to mode 2. That way I won't be switching IS on and off during the show.

After 10 years of air shows I have not had any problems doing this.

just a question, BigBen08: do you use tripod/mono-pod during those air shows? if you do, what kind of tripod head do you use? thanks.
