Which IS mode is more effective, IS Shooting Only or IS Continuous and if continuous has impact on battery life? Is one for videos and the other for stills? Are they designed for two specific reasons?

I have always done IS shooting only and it works great. I haven't come up with a reason to do continuous as it would definitely add to battery consumption but maybe others can provide a reason why continuous would be beneficial.

When using a long lens? With my old and unsteady hands, continuous is a great help at, say, 150-200mm in framing the shot. Would be even more so at 400mm+

I shoot almost exclusively with the 100-400 so yeah...but maybe I should do more testing.  I can see in framing the shot it could be beneficial so good point.
