Does lens image stabiization work in vidoe mode?
Hey guys I'm looking at getting a Tamron or Nikkor lens for my D7000 with Vibration reduction. Does this feature work when shooting video or for photos only? I saw another thread online where they said it does work but it was a photography site. Figured this site is mainly video focused and you guys might be more help.
my 24-105's IS worked fine in video mode, but i'm not sure if it works on nikon...

IS is not going to do anything for you on a wide to mid range lens. IS can be helpful if you are shooting a long tele lens locked off on a cheaper tripod (decent tripod is gonna cost you at least $700 and up). If you are panning though, depending on the IS mode, you can get some funky stuff going on.
Ya I'll be getting it on a 70-300 for sure (Tamron or Nikkor) but I'm looking at getting like a Nikkor 16-85. I guess I care more if it's going to help if I grabbed the camera off the tripod and wanted to shoot more freely handheld and closer to the subject. There's times when I don't have the time to go from the tripod to the glidecam and I was wondering if the VR would help with video and stabilize it some. Also any shots in the car are difficult to use a glidecam on.
