Image Stabilization

Intelligent IS settings:

  •        OFF: Deactivates image stabilizer.
  •        ON: Reduces camera shake under normal shooting conditions.
  •        ON (AIS): Reduces camera shake more effectively when shooting bright scenes on the wide-angle end. Only on the wide-angle end (approx. 5x).
  •        Enhanced AIS: The area of correction in the enhanced AIS-mode is greater than that in the AIS mode. Camera shake can be reduced more effectively even when recording is performed by zooming from wide-angle to telephoto.

It is recommended to set the image stabilizer to “OFF” when shooting a subject of little movement with the unit on a tripod. Complete stabilization may not be possible if camera shake is excessive. This setting is effective for video recording only. Using the image stabilizer will narrow the angle of view. Dynamic zoom is not available in the enhanced AIS mode.
