I use mode 2 for tripod panning and got some great results. Check page 229 for tug boat nightshot.

Page 229 of what?!?! :o

Do you leave it in Mode 1 most of the time?

J...Do you switch back & forth between IS 1 & 2? ... I had switched to IS 2, only because I thought that might control camera shake better, but no idea, really. Does it or is IS 2 only for panning?...

Switch it to Mode 2 for panning panning (horizontal OR vertical stabilization - the panning direction is automatically detected regardless of orientation - portrait or landscape). Leave it on Mode 1 for all other shooting instances. Tripod detection is built in, so you don't really have to switch it off ever.

As with any IS system, you have to give that tad-bit of time for the IS meachnism to kick in before pressing the shutter release button.

https://photography-on-the.net …ead.php?t=27861​7&page=172

Yes I usually use mode 1 but for tripod panning with slow shutter speed... I think mode 2 gives you better result. =)

I guess you already know this but just in case... now that the topic is being discussed, let me add that IMHO, regardless of the equipment or settings, a combination of the following basic techniques makes or breaks a panning shot:

1. Getting the shutter speed right - so shoot in Tv mode. Different lenses will have different limitations w.r.t. to the max aperture and available light and it is important to know how much to expect.
2. Shoot in high-speed continuous drive.
3. Shoot in AI-Servo mode with subject centre-framed.
4. Start focussing and following the subject from your left or right / top or bottom and release the shutter when the subject is in front of you to capture a burst of shots.

Apologies to the rest for taking the thread a bit off-topic, let the pics keep coming!!
