Top-class, In-body 5-axis Image Stabilisation





The world's best stabilisation performance


The 5-axis VCM image stabilisation, which powerfully compensates any type of shaking, has improved, achieving the world's highest compensation performance of 5 steps*. It also provides powerful compensation for camera roll which cannot be corrected with an in-lens IS, and horizontal/vertical shift which tends to occur during macro shooting. With this feature, you can enjoy hand-held shooting in dark locations and during telephoto photography without worrying about camera shake. It also prevents image shake in the viewfinder for stable framing.

 

*As of February 5, 2015 on interchangeable lens cameras. Based on CIPA standards, when used with M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-50mm F3.5-6.3 EZ, at focal length of 50mm (35mm equivalent focal length: 100mm), in pitch/yaw direction.


Roll compensation not possible with in-lens IS


Z: Roll

This model powerfully compensates camera shake in rolling that cannot be compensated by in-lens IS. With this feature, you can enjoy hand-held shooting during long exposures even in dark locations.




Shifting compensation supports hand-held macro shooting


X: Horizontal shift,
Y: Vertical shift

Shift blur often occurs when shooting macro photography. With a revised algorithm, the E-M5 Mark II's 5-axis VCM image stabilisation system is now compatible with shift blurring not only when shooting still images but also for movies. This provides powerful support for hand-held macro shooting.




Optical stabilisation and digital stabilisation combine to realise movie IS


Not only is 5-axis image stabilisation useful for still images, but it also shows its ability when recording movies. The VCM magnetically levitates the image sensor constantly for smooth hand-held movie recording similar to dedicated cinematic image stabilisation equipment used in feature-length films. The M-IS1 image stabilisation mode for movie recording combines both the 5-axis optical image stabilisation and digital image stabilisation for more powerful effects, and M-IS2 uses 5-axis image stabilisation only.

Half-pressing the shutter release prevents image shake in the viewfinder for stable framing


This model is equipped with a halfway release image stabilisation so you can view image stabilisation effects in the viewfinder while pressing the shutter button halfway. This makes more accurate framing and focusing possible through a stable viewfinder image during macro and telephoto shooting.
