Taking Shots of Sports?

Do you have a camera or lens that has some kind of image stabilization function?  Do you take photos of your children playing sport or you like photographing race cars on the track or any other kind of fast moving subjects? Try this tip next time you are out and about.

Turn stabilization OFF!  When you are shooting you probably want to use continuous (motor drive) shooting as well.  With stabilization ON there is extra time taken to process each image before the camera is ready to take the next shot.  Your frame rate drops!  However, since you should be using shutter speeds faster than 1/500 sec and probably nearer 1/1000 sec on a bright day there really is no benefit gained with keeping stabilization on.
