I've been shooting a lot of video with my 5D MkII, with the camera mounted on a Gorillapod. I've been using an old Canon 28-70mm f/3.5-4.5, because it's small and light and optically quite good; and I'm shooting mostly at f/11 and the slowest shutter speed I can use in daylight. I am shooting bandit-style, as lightweight as possible. The tripod is nice and stable in still air, but England is plagued with gusts of wind which make the tripod wobble intermittently. I can mitigate this by shielding the camera with my body, and I can generally cure it in post-production with Deshaker. Let's assume for the sake of argument that the tripod is non-negotiable, and that I can't enclose the camera in a streamlined fairing. I've tried talking to the wind - trying to negotiate a settlement - but sadly my words are all carried away. The wind does not hear. In fact the wind *cannot* hear. Therefore is there a technological solution for the problem of intermittent camera shake? Can I beat the whites with the red wedge? My first thought is an image stabilised lens, but I'm not sure how Canon's implementation of image stabilisation operates when the lens senses that it is on a tripod. I am under the impression that the image stabilisation simply turns off, but I could be wrong. Nonetheless, can anybody suggest a lightweight, small, image stabilised full-frame lens with a handy range? Sharpness is less important in this context than effective geometric and CA correction. For filming in daylight on a tripod I do not mind if the lens has to be stopped down to f/11 for good results, because I will be shooting at a slow shutter speed. My 28-70mm f/3.5-4.5 is in fact generally ideal except for the lack of image stabilisation and the limited telephoto range. The 28-135mm IS springs to mind. The 24-105mm f/4 L IS is another obvious option although it's large and heavy and expensive. I can't actually think of another full-frame image stabilised general-purpose Canon zoom lens that doesn't weigh a tonne. The 18-55mm IS would be ideal but of course it is not a full-frame lens. Is there something from e.g. Sigma, Tamron? Bueller?
