Turn off the stabilization when you use the flash and/or a tripod.

That's what the manual says on my dSLR.  Smiley

Some cameras have considerably more shutter release or shot to shot lag with stabilization running. Some camera have poorer image quality with stab on. Just depends on the camera. Look yours up on those digiphoto review sites where they pick apart every feature and take a bazillion test shots.

Hmmm... off when using flash, hadn't heard that, but it makes perfect sense since you should be 15 - 25 feet from your subject with the built in flash and probably won't be using the big zoom, plus the flash stops action. Learned something new  Smiley

I use mine with flash sometimes but my stabilization is in the lens, not the camera. It's always off on the tripod though...
