Is there stabilisation in the a6000?

    Hi all, first post here.

    I have an a6000 and love it. I mainly shoot video with it. Pictures are incredible.

    I often use the camera on a slider and at times it appears there is some kind of image stabilisation at play as - on a very smooth slider - the image regularly "jerks". I am using standard Sony lenses.

    Does anyone know if the camera and/or lenses use stabilisation and - if so - how can I turn it off?

    Many thanks

    Dave

    Camera no, lenses - some of them YES. If OSS mark on them, you have stabilization. You will help us by noting exactly what lenses do you use.

    I have no camera besides me, but there is an option to switch on or off image stabilization in menus. I think it is called SteadyShot if not Image Stabilization. Unless you shoot tripod, I don't see any advantages in shutting it off.

    Thanks for the response and dopey me.

    I neglected to check the markings on the lens. Yes, both have OSS.

    SO now to find a way to switch it off.

    Thanks again.
