Hi all

I have the 24-120 F4. I will sometimes use this lens to take videos.

However, I dont really see the different when i turn the VR(normal) on or off, is it something I have missed? or is my technique is wrong again?


Regards

How are you shooting your video? Handheld? Tripod?

Maybe the difference is there, but you don't notice it because you don't know what to look out for. Or if you are shooting video on a tripod, with a fixed shot, then you don't need VR in the first place, and it can be detrimental to your shot. On tripod, switch off VR.

It's also less noticeable at shorter focal lengths. More noticeable at longer focal lengths.

Example:
