Dumb question: on the S1, how do i turn off image stabiliser?

I can't figure out how to turn off in body stabilization.

I can find  the setting for auto and panning.

Panasonic S1

I don't believe it can be truly turned off. Here is a page from my S1H manual, and I'm certain the S1 is similar.

I think the S1 manual gives similar information.

I thought I had to turn it off when on a tripod.

Or does it automatically recognise when the camera is mounted on a tripod and turn itself off?

You can turn off the lens IS but you can't turn off the body IS.

AFAIK, there's no way to tell the camera it's mounted on a tripod.

As far as I can tell, if you want to turn off ALL stabilization, and you are using a Panasonic lens with stabilization, then turn the stabilization off on the lens. That should turn off ALL stabilization. (I get the Red Hand icon in the upper right hand corner.)

Same deal if you are using a Canon lens with Stabilization on the MC-21. Turn the stabilization switch on the lens to off. (I have no idea what happens if you are using a canon lens without lens stabilization on the MC-21 adapter though.)

If you are using a manual focus lens on a dumb adapter (like my Minolta MD manual focus lenses on cheap adapters), then in the camera menu under image stabilization, in the mode sub menu you get the option to turn it off.

Also, I don't know whether a panasonic lens without lens stabilization (like the 20-60mm lens) will behave. I don't know whether you will get the option in the stabilization menu to turn off stabilization or not.

Hope this helps.

How to

In Stabilizer Menu go to "Operation Mode"

In the upcoming Menu you have three choices Normal, Panning and Off

Choose OFF and the IBIS is OFF

It will be overide when you are using a L-mount lens with OIS, when you turn it on on the lens the IBIS will be activated.

When you cahnge lens to one without OIS the IBIS will be off again until you activate it again.

Thankyou,

I thought maybe i had missed the setting somewhere.

I kept on looking in the manual and searching online.

I can relax now ūü§£ and enjoy the camera.

Re: Dumb question: on the S1, how do i turn off image stabiliser?

With the sigma 24-70 DG DN , which doesnt have lens stabilisation, i have the option to turn it off in the menu.

The panasonic 70-200 f4, doesnt have the OFF option. I switch it off on the lens.

Thanks for the help everyone.

I was looking for the OFF option when i had my panasonic 70-200 attached. I now know to use the lens to switch off the stabilisation.

When using my sigma DG DN 24-70 I can access it in the menus.

At this stage i only have the two lenses for my S1

What is "auto".

What is "auto".

The "auto" mode of IBIS "detects panning directions automatically" when you are panning the camera and will NOT add stabilization that contradicts the panning motion.

At least, that is the theory of Auto mode.

I will attest that it works great.

Thanks for sharing your experience, and good to hear it works well.

I need to play around with it because there are times when using my S1 on my gimbal (Zhiyun Weebill S) and it sometimes seems like the stabilization is fighting me.

BTW: Nice shot. Reminds me of my days back in the early 90's when I used to shoot motorcycle races for a couple of local newspapers / magazines.

... Additionally you can put the stabilizer in the Q-quick menu, then the way is not so far.
