Hi,

Nice to see the IBIS that Canon has brought forth on the R5 and R6. I had a question as to how they usually implement this sort of thing. For instance, just say you are shooting with IS off at 80mm in AV mode and the camera picks a shutter speed of 1/80 at an ISO of 800. In the same situation with IS on, would the camera automatically determine that a lower ISO would be better, determine that a slower shutter speed would be the way to go, a combination of both, or is it totally up to the user at that point to change these settings (for instance lower in the ISO and slower in the shutter)?. Basically wondering how its intelligence works.

Thank you.

It's a reasonable question. While I cannot speak to the Canon models you mention, a Sony A6500 does not consider whether the IBIS is on or off in determining shutter speed.

Logically, it will be the other way round. The shutter speed (and the focal length of the lens) should determine whether the IBIS is switched on or not.
