Intelligent IS

Blur-free Still Shots

The IS system uses an optical shift image stabilisation mechanism pioneered by Canon for use in DSLR camera lenses. The technology has continued to evolve and has been inherited by models in the compact camera range as well. Intelligent IS analyses the situation during shooting and classifies the scenes into one of six types. Image stabilisation is automatically carried out to suit each respective scene, allowing for both still images and moving images to be recorded clearly.
