Canon’s Super Range Optical Image Stabilizer (OIS) is an advanced IS system that detects vibrations across the frequency range – even low band movements that become noticeable when extremely high resolution images are recorded.
Super Range OIS is a precision hybrid system. It works by combining electronic camera shake detection with lens gyros that move the lens (‘lens shift’) to correct the path of incoming light.
The result? While conventional image stabilisers detect medium and high frequency vibrations, the hybrid Super Range system can also detect low frequency movements, such as slight body motion, that are outside the range of regular OIS systems. At HD
resolution in particular, it is vital that low frequency movements can be detected and corrected by the camcorder: Super Range OIS does just that.
As an added benefit, Super Range OIS also prevents camera shake when digital photographs are taken.
