Default Lens Stabilization

If you have a camera with live view, zoom in the live view screen and watch how well your image stabilizer works. Pretty cool. Works better then I previously thought.

You can do it through the viewfinder too. Really helps on windy days when I'm taking a super-tele shot and need to do MF.

That's one way. Looking through the veiwfinder is neat too...that took a bit to get used to.

Another way is to take a 200mm handheld shot at 1/8s with IS off and then IS on:

I see it in the view finder also, but only the bigger shakes. It even weirds a guy out once in awhile. But using the live view I can see the very small vibration control it has.
