      I use a Panasonic PV-GS400 with optical image stabilization (which they call electronic IS, but it’s not). I am confused about what to expect when it’s turned on. At full zoom in with a 2.2 teleconverter, I am at a 35mm equivalency of about 1200mm which is quite high. With the cam locked down on a tripod, I experience some shaking of the image and no noticeable difference with or without OIS. Is OIS intended to remove vibration or actual movement? Should I expect it to work at high zoom or only at more “normal” focal lengths? I have considered literally weighing the camera down with strapped on weights to stop the shaking. Seems crude but might work. Are there any other suggestions? Does anyone have a good reference (web) on preventing camera shake? Thanks
