    I have a XT 20 with the 18-55 lens. I have seen a couple of videos on you tube that say I have two mode option in the camera menu for OIS.
    One says keep it in option 1.the other in option 2.
    Im only shooting handheld right now so the OIS is turned on ......on the lens.
    Where are these other options in the camera menu and if they do exist .what setting should I be using and why :)

    Thanks

    On my X-T20 go into menu then click on the camera icon and scroll down to iso mode I have mine on 2 :)
    I downloaded the PDF manual as it`s good to read.

    You mean OIS mode.

    Be carreful, you give the link to X20.
    Here is the link to X-T20 Owner's manual. (see p156)

    OIS "shooting only" mode only activates image stabilisation during the actual process of capturing an image, not during framing. The OIS "continuous" mode permanently activates OIS, even for framing.

    It's easy to see the effect of the two different modes: Select a focal length of 55mm (the lens' longest FL) and point your camera at a distant object.
    • In "shooting only" mode, the object will dance a little in the viewfinder due to camera shake, and it might be hard to see fine image detail (the captured shot will be fine though).
    • In "continuous" mode, the VF image will dance a lot less, but if you pan the lens, there will be a slight lag until you get to see the panning motion - the lag is due to OIS operation.
    The longer the focal length, the more pronounced will the difference be between the two modes. "Continuous" will probably consume a little more power.

    There is a way of - perhaps - getting the best of both worlds.

    You can set the camera to activate OIS during framing with half press of the shutter.

    (Set focus set to AF-C, link focus to the shutter and set OIS to "shooting only")
