hi all!

i have a qus, i'm sure some of you guys has any lens with stabilizer rite? i have a damn noob question. let say we use aperture mode and set 3.5 or something, then the shutter they gave me is 1/30, whether i on or off the stabilizer, the shutter which they gave me wouldnt change is it? or will it actually increase since it can stabilizer?

i'm kinna blur about this, hope someone can enlighten me in this regard. i dont even noe if my stabilizer is functioning or not. i always tot the in aperture mode, when i on stabilizer, the shutter will change a bit? pls correct me if i'm wrong. lol!

There is not relation or connection between IS and exposure settings. IS (as a physical measurement inside the lens or body, depending on camera) will help you stabilizing the optical elements when the shutter speed becomes slower in order to avoid blur images by handshake. It doesn't affect the exposure metering and resulting exposure settings in any way.
