    All camera brands? Not true, VR or derivatives of it are switchable in many brands and are not on by default.

    Another clue on the original images is that they're not just motion-blurred, but they have multiple "stable" images. The roof lights in particular show two specific locations. The exposure was happening, something shifted, the exposure continued. Wind, or ground motion, would be more random than that. Bumping the tripod would most likely be a bigger shift.

    How's that for a perfect hindsight revelation? :)

    See post #22 for test photos. It was definitely the OIS (Fuji’s version of VR/VC).

    Thanks for the information. Just inherited a XT-1 and saw the FUJI claimed there is no need to turn off OIS. I’ll keep this in mind.
