Canon U.S.A., Inc announces the development of its Hybrid Image Stabilizer (IS) claiming to be the world's first* optical image stabilization technology that compensates shaky photographer.
The new technology of Canon could ease or eradicate the unwanted result of a photo due to shaking problem by which the company called as angle camera shakes and shift camera shake.
The new Hybrid IS technology incorporates an angular velocity sensor that detects the extent of angle-based shaking and is found in all previous Canon optical image stabilizer mechanisms, as well as a new acceleration sensor that determines the amount of shift-based camera shake, the company said.
The technology will be will be featured in interchangeable single lens reflex (SLR) camera lens planned for commercial release before the end of 2009.
In 1980s, Canon has started researching methods to compensate for camera shake and in mid 1990s the company launches its first interchangeable SLR camera lens to feature a mechanism that compensates for optical camera shake and was followed by several interchangeable lenses with image stabilization capabilities up to now.
