The Olympus 5 axis stabilization presentation video.
Great news folks! As you know the next bunch of A-mount cameras is expected to be launched in early 2014. And of the brand new key features will be the 5-Axis SSS developed in partnership with Olympus! As you know the Olympus E-M5 and the brand new E-P5 have that kind of tech. Sony and Olympus engineers are now developing it further to make it work on Sony’s next Full Frame cameras!
You can see the advantage of the 5 axis IS over the regular 2 axis stabilization on that video:
In short, not only will be the new 400mm f/4.0 A-mount lens be designed with Olympus. Also the new A-mount cameras will get some of the best tech from Olympus. I also hope they will use Olympus JPG engine knowledge to make Sony JPG’s look better.
