Quote:I thought that in cameras with in camera IS the imager physically moved to counteract the shaking motion of the camera. Is "digital image stabilization something a little more phony? Like, ha, ha, "Digital Zoom"? I'm pretty sure with Oly MFT, and Sony they use a sensor shift method. I'm not quick to laugh at sensor shift stabilization for a couple of reasons. Namely reduced elements and sharper, cheaper lenses. I have to admit I don't understand the in lens form of stabilization. I had imagined it was gyroscopic, but lens diagrams show lens elements that are stabilizing.We do of course incorporate "a bar" at our model aircraft club but as luck would have it the ladies always seem to be fully clothed! :wacko:
The only functional thing I care about stabilization is that Canon IS allows you to see a steady image in the viewer, where other systems cause you to see a shaky or jumping image that does not reflect the state of the capture. Again, my impression is that Oly MFT imager shift stabilization is 100% legit. And even adds addition high resolution mode.
So in Pentax IS not legit, somehow? I've liked the K1 camera in reviews. Not the same as using one, I guess! Oh, wait, the K01 is not the same camera, right?
Is model club another way of saying stripper bar?
Yes, I had the K01, as BC said it had all the advantages of a mirror-box (good for storage) with none of the drawbacks of a mirror, as Pentax didn't want to change their lens registrations distance, so it was affectionately know as the 'brick". For stills it had "real" in body stabilization, which worked fine, and digital stabilization for video because the sensor movement created some noise.
I liked my K01 great IQ and half decent video. It is currently drying out after having been under water with my old Samsung GX10 (Pentax K10) I had sold them to a friend....he had a pipe burst, both the bodies and three lenses submerged, a few days later he tried the GX10 and amazingly it came back to life...the jury's still out on the K01.
5 axis IBS has the advantage of stabilization of rotational movement which OS cannot correct.
