Monopod - No. Tripod-recommended

I have read, at least in the Panasonic world, that one needs to switch off lens stabilization when mounted to a tripod. Would anyone know if this stricture applies to a monopod mount?


Monopod, no - leave IS still enabled because their is still movement.

Tri-Pod, it is generally recommended to switch IS off , because the IS will be working to stabilize when it is not needed. Unless you have the camera fixed to a gimbal where it allows movement.
