Watch Why you should use VR/IS/OS Sparingly on YouTube
Nikon calls it VR or Vibration Reduction. Canon calls it IS or Image Stabilization. Sigma got into the game and calls it OS or Optical Stabilization. What is it? Should I waste my time with it? Should I spend extra money on it? What are some of the drawbacks of using VR? Should I use it on a tripod? These are many questions I've received as of late with regards to VR. In my video I will dispel some of the rumors as well as give some good examples of when to use it and when not to. Its not as cut and dry as you might think.
I also explain the difference between Normal and Active VR modes. Most photographers don't know the difference and just leave it on one or the other which is totally wrong. Check out the video and let me know what you think about the new format. Keep shooting!
