Image Stabilizing Tip

There are two different types of Image stabilizing for digital cameras; In Body Image Stabilizing (Sensor-Shift) and Lens Image Stabilizing (Lens-Shift.)

What is Image Stabilization?

Different manufacturers use different terms to describe pretty much the same feature, IMAGE STABILIZER! They call it VR (Vibration Reduction), IS (Image Stabilizer), STEADY SHOT, SHAKE REDUCTION, etc. But, what is it?

Generally speaking, Image Stabilization reduces the chance of camera shakes when using a slower shutter speed. It won’t prevent blur from the motion of the subject, though. A faster shutter speed is the correct choice for freezing moving subjects.  

Which Technolgy is Better, “Lens-Shift” or “Sensor-Shift?”

It has been a long debate among photographers and manufacturers around this topic! In short, the image stabilization technologies have improved a lot that hardly these debates make sense anymore!


Using Image Stabilization improves pictures’ sharpness, and that is the point!


However, if you have Image Stabilization in both your camera body and your lens, you can only use one or the other, NOT BOTH.
