New Compact 5-axis Image Stabilisation

The new 5-axis IS unit optimised for a compact, lightweight body delivers compensation effects beyond that of the E-M5 Mark II. Combined with in-lens IS, this feature supports 5-axis sync IS for powerful image stabilisation.

Max. of approximately 5.5 shutter speed steps[1] of compensation

Based on information from the high-sensitivity gyro sensor, the TruePic VIII image processor has precise control over the new 5-axis IS unit for up to approximately 5.5 shutter speed steps[1] of compensation, which goes beyond that of the E-M5 Mark II. In-body image stabilisation ensures image stabilisation with every single lens attached.

  • 1 Lens: M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm F2.8 PRO, focal length f = 40mm (35mm equivalent: f = 80mm), CIPA standard compliant

5-axis stabilisation for correcting roll blur

Because the cameras supports 5-axis stabilisation, in addition to angular blur and translational blur, the camera can correct roll blur, something not possible for in-lens image stabilisation. This provides powerful suppression of camera shake that occurs in telephoto photography, macro shooting, and handheld shooting at night.

More powerful compensation with 5-axis sync IS

Controlling the camera while synchronising the image stabilisation of the supported lens and in-body 5-axis image stabilisation delivers up to approximately 6.5 shutter speed steps[1] of compensation.

  • 1 Lens used with 6.5 shutter speed steps of compensation: M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-100mm F4.0 IS PRO, focal length: f = 100mm (35mm equivalent focal length: 200mm), CIPA standard compliant
