Image stabilization while using a tripod

It depends

Generally the advice is to turn stabilization off when using a tripod, but there are lenses with a tripod mode and one can (or should ?) set stabilization ON with these lenses.

For example my Nikon 400/2.8VR has a TRIPOD mode that is to be used when the lens is locked down on tripod, and it should be set to NORMAL when panning while using a tripod.

Refer your lens/camera manual for accurate instructions regarding your specific kit.
