I keep my tripod's quick release plate mounted on the bottom of my camera all the time.
I read someone the other day who said that the camera "detects" the quick release plate and "determines" that you are using a tripod, and that that affects your camera's image stbilization.
Do you think this is true?
Nope. I would highly doubt any camera would have some kind of sensor built in to see if a plate were attached.
Unless I'm traveling, I have an RRS L-bracket affixed permanently to my 5D IV. It's a physical connection only.
