The following article was sent exclusively to the VIP Readers of the blog several months ago. Today I publish it in open for all readers. Some SLR cameras carry the image stabilizer built into the camera body, while others carry it on the lens. And the truth is that, be the stabilizer in one place or another, the important thing is that when buying a reflex or objective camera, we try to have the image stabilizer. Essential. In the objective, in the camera body, it doesn't matter, the important thing is to have a stabilizer. Today I will explain some details that will help you understand the reason for my insistence, to what extent stabilizers are effective, and whether they are always recommended or not.
IN THE CAMERA OR IN THE LENS?As I was saying, there are cameras that bring the stabilizer integrated into the body of it. The advantage that this offers us is that we don't have to worry about looking for a lens that has it, since the camera already has it. In addition, objectives without stabilizer are somewhat cheaper. Brands such as Sony or Pentax have the stabilizer on the camera body. The other type of stabilizers is found in the objective. This causes us a dilemma when we want to buy a new objective: do we buy one with a stabilizer, more expensive, or without a stabilizer and therefore more affordable? Brands that have it on the lens are for example Nikon (abbreviated VR) and Canon (IS). The truth is that, they say, target stabilizers work and STABILIZE better than camera body stabilizers. It is not proven, because it is difficult to measure, but I only transmit what is said for you to take into account
IS A STABILIZER ALWAYS NECESSARY?No. But there are situations that are more likely to make the photo blurry and blurred: for example, if it is a photo with poor lighting, we most likely need the help of a stabilizer. Also if we are shooting at long focal distances such as 100 or 200mm, it is usually convenient to activate the stabilizer. On the other hand, shooting at 18mm or 25mm usually does not usually require a stabilizer since there is less chance that the photo will be blurred. Remember, the greater the focal length, the greater the possibility of moving photo. In other words, having a stabilizer on an 18-55mm lens would not be a bad idea, but having it on a 70-300mm would be essential.
IS IT ALWAYS GOOD TO USE STABILIZER?No. Try the camera or lens to have the stabilizer function so you can use it when you deem it necessary, but do not leave it always activated. My advice is to use the stabilizer when it is really necessary. If you start a photo session and no photo is blurred, why turn it on? There is an urban legend that says that the image stabilizer corrects the photo and helps to avoid / hide the movement but in return we have a bit of image quality. So be careful. Moral: You know, try to have the stabilizer always at hand, but without abusing
