    I am wondering about the stages of the OIS on my GF1. On the lens i have the on off switch. I have this on. When i access the quick menu i can adjust from stages 1,2 and 3. What exactly does this do?

    Hi Icon,

    there are three modes of OIS, they are described here, and there's a 3 minute guide to OIS here.

    Briefly :


    Hope that helps!

    Dear Brian,

    Honestly i am more confident shooting with mode 1, because i can see the OIS works even before i press the shutter button. I can see from the LCD that the image is really stabilized although my hands are jittering.

    Anyone also feeling this?

    Thanks Brian.
    And nTo i have noticed that i like mode 1 better as well. Mode 3, doesn't produce the same sharpness from my experience. When i am at full tele on the 45-200 , mode 3 is constantly makes the object jiggle around and i think that puts me off slightly and I lose steadiness.
