Poll: On sensor IBIS is possible on Sony E-mount cameras. Do you want it?


You may remember that a couple of months ago Sony Europe made a mess and said E-mount cameras have an on sensor stabilization (See Image on top). Well, the image is now gone but I got an interesting note form a highly trusted source: He told me that on sensor stabilization is technically possible on E-mount cameras! But the reason why Sony didn’t add this feature yet is simple: Sony isn’t yet sure if such a feature is a key factor for mirrorless camera buyers.

I figured a little POLL on SAR may help them to decide :) Imagine Sony using Olympus E-M1 stabilization system (likely the worlds best stabilization for photocameras yet).

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

Gavin:Thought you might like to share this timelapse movie that was shot entirely with the Sony A7R https://vimeo.com/97785257

Baron: During our family vacation, I got to test the Sony FDR-AX100. As a tourist I needed a small and lightweight video camera. As a videographer I wanted to shoot in a higher resolution than HD. My subjects were shy and fast. The Malaysian weather was unpredictable. To add to that challenge, I brought along my hyperactive 3 year old daughter. I’m happy to say that the Sony AX100 met all my needs. Editing the 4K footage in Final Cut Pro X on an iMac was very smooth. Vacationeers and travellers would enjoy using the Sony AX100. Here’s the video. Be sure to watch it in 4K http://youtu.be/YOgwCtgO1Vs

Heather & Mat:Here is a recent article we wrote about using the Sony A7 (yes, that’s right, the A7 not the A7s!) for low-light video shooting. The video is of a contemporary dance performance that took place 30 metres underground in the ancient Bourbon Tunnel in Napoli (Naples).
