Matt Granger: How effective is the Sony In Body Image Stabilisation? Diglloyd: Where is pixel shift on the A7rII?

Is the new Sony 5 axis image stabilization really a deal breaker? Just watch Matt Granger’s video above to hear his opinion on it!

And Diggloyd is asking Sony why the new Sony A7R II has no Pixel Shift:

Conspicuously missing from the Sony A7R II feature set is Olympus-style pixel shift, which in my testing can deliver roughly a 32-megapixel image from a 16-megapixel sensor. On the 42-megapixel Sony A7R II sensor, a similar technology would deliver ~63 megapixels, or maybe more like ~80 megapixels using a Zeiss Otus.
It’s a pity that Sony is not offering pixel shift, since it has Olympus-style sensor stabilization. Perhaps it will appear in a firmware update, but that seems dubious, since it is a terrific feature to brag about at a product release (and would be a first for a full frame camera).
