Hi all,
i own a Fuji X-E1 with the nice 18-55 f2.8/4 which has in-lens stabilization (OIS).
I'm pretty happy with the results for general purposes but specifically for stock i found myself apply 90% of the times a post FCP X stabilization before exporting a clip and publish to the agencies.
Sometimes i also use Lock&load FCP X plugin which is faster.
Do you think i should switch to an in-camera stabilization camera such as Sony RX100 mkIII?
Do you think it should be better an in-camera stabilization instead of a in-lens stabilization to obtain good-enough results avoiding post-processing with FinalCutPro X?
How many of you stabilize always like me in post in addition of the in-camera or in-lens process?

Thanks in advance

p.s. i forgot to say i use camera without tripod because i'm in travel

Yes, sometimes even tripod clips. It doesn't take much wind to introduce shake at 600-1200 mm.

It depends on the clip of course, whether it needs or not. If you walk with a stabilized lens you will still need to stabilize more in post.

In nature documentaries and TV shows you see lots of shaky footage, but the stock sites tend to want perfectly stable clips.

You will get a lot of footage rejected if it is not very stable. I travel a lot but always shoot footage with a tripod. I actually travel with 2 tripods and cameras because I can shoot 2 sequences for day to night timelapses at the same time and it acts as a backup as well

Look for a lightweight tripod that folds small. I use Fotopro c-5i. Comes with a nice nylon case for about $190 each.

I own the Sony RX100MIII and I have tried filming handheld several times with stabilization switched on. It's not good. I didn't upload the videos. Sometimes I just don't have a tripod with me and would like to take a video but I was always disappointed with the result.

The choice of lens certainly does make a difference. The vast majority of my footage is tripod-mounted. However, there have been times when Ive done pans and tilts with a 12mm wide angle lens hand held and got decent results without any stabilisation. And one of those hand held shots was accepted by SS.
