SR Stabilized,Not Ready?

A number of my shots have EXIF data reading "SR Stabilized, Not ready". The shots are about 4.5 secs the half-shutter press and the SR Hand is displayed.
What does "Stabilized, Not ready" indicate?

At 4.5 seconds you must have been on a tripod, so the shake reduction should have been turned off.

SR needs time to settle when the camera is turned on.

If using very long shutter speeds hand held the sensor might move so much it reach the mechanical stops, which will then disable SR.

Sorry!, I meant that the shot was taken when the shutter butoon had been depressed for approx 4.5 secs.
The actual shutter speeds vary between 1/125 and 1//350 sec.

My suggestion is to try some shots around 1/30 or maybe a bit slower with SR turned on for some and turned off for others. If nothing else that should give you a good clue of whether SR is working or not.

My guess is that you have been moving the camera (or panning) before the shot. You can half press for as long as you want, but you have to hold the camera steady for about 0.7sec before you take the shot.

I don't-half-press anymore as I use the AF button to turn the meter on. The feature has to be turned on in the menu. Try it that way and report back.
