Indieke: I leave the stabilizer on all the time, when I am hand holding the camera (usually on #2 position). It really doesn't hurt anything and I figure I need all the help I can get. When I mount the FZ18 mounted on a tripod (for macros, etc.), I turn it off to save battery life. My Nikon lenses with stabilization must be turned off when tripod mounted, but the FZ18 manual does not indicate you must do that. It does extend battery life though. Thanks for the good words. Good shooting!

Nice pictures Bill. I noticed you did use again the image stabiliser. I never did. What are the cons of using this? Why did you use it here as light was not an issue and you did not zoomed in that much?

Been trying to handle the FZ 18, that does a nice job. You can find some here:
