I have been taking pictures with a canon camera for a while now with my heli but when my old canon broke I bought a new one with Image stabalization. I used it for the first time yesterday and the pictures were prety blurry. The lighting wasn't the best because it was a little hazy but I thought that there was enough light for the pictures to turn out good. Has anyone ever used a canon camera with Image stablizing and does it help or hurt when trying to take good pictures with vibrations from a heli. I guess I thought it might help but I'm wondering if it just makes it worse?

Image stabilization will not remove vibrations effects from your image. You have to have a smooth heli. That is one benefit to mounting a vid cam on your heli, it helps evaluate micro vibes.

Thats exactly what I did. I critiqued all my early sorties with a small 5-in-1 ST Labs USB camera. It showed just how smooth my flying wasn't!!!

As for a stable shot, I use 1/640 shutter-priority (80 or 100ASA) where possible although on a dark winters day, I have had good results at 400ASA 1/400. All with a Canon 640 without the 0.7 lens (that gets a try-out in an hour...).
