Pixel shift and low light

Pixel shift needs 100% support and only a tripod can do that. Low light often means that you need to use softer apertures to get more saturated exposure and increase ISO to "fill" the rest because even IBIS cannot offer enough support in many cases. Using a tripod allows you to use the sharpest aperture and base ISO for best image quality. Of course, if there is too much motion, a tripod does nothing. Some also might use long exposures in daylight with a ND filter to blur water.
