depends. it's not important for capturing moving subjects and when you can use high ISO to get fast shutter speeds.

yeah depends la. IS wont freeze action. higher shutter speeds will. but it is a cool feature to have esp at longer lengths

so if i using ISO 80 or 100 shooting a object that maybe slighty move a little bit w/o image stabilization... then when viewing the photo, will have some "double image" on it?

image stabilization is good for camera that are mainly small and light.
if u intend to get a compact camera,this function is something you must consider.
cause you won't want to be complaining how blur your night shots are and surely not carrying a tripod to correct the problem.

dont waste the money on the IS feature... spend it on a better lens. u can always used a tripod/monopod or a higher iso speed to compensate.

Its something nice to have, but as others have said, there are ways around it if you can't justify the $$$. If you have the $$$, why not?

Actually I find that with the improving noise signature on DSLR nowadays, its less important to have IS since you can always compensate via increasing iso.
But still couldn't record white with details like films do leh?:think: :sweat:

just ask yourself, why are f/1.4, f/1.8, f/2.8 lenses important to some photographers?
