Canon develops Hybrid image stabilization system

Canon has developed a 'Hybrid Image Stabilizer' that corrects for both linear and rotational shake. The system, which the company claims is a world's first for SLR lenses, will be incorporated into a lens that will be released before the end of 2009. It is designed to offer improved stabilization performance at closer subject distances, and particularly for macro shooting.


Quite innovative but I feel this may not make much difference in areas other than macro photography like sports where image stabilization is pretty useful. Have to gets hands on to really see how different it is compared to the current generation of IS and VR offerings
