The latest advance in Canon Optical Image
Stabilization technology, Intelligent IS, analyzes camera movement and applies the best
shake correction method for the shooting situation. For stills, the system automatically
selects among Normal, Panning, Macro (Hybrid) and Tripod IS modes. When shooting video, the
system automatically selects among Dynamic, Powered, Macro and Tripod IS modes. With
Intelligent IS, you can concentrate on image capture, letting the camera make the most
effective IS settings to assure the steadiest possible image.
Normal Corrects for a wide range of camera movement when shooting
Panning Panning motion is detected so that IS does not interfere
with desired camera movement.
Hybrid Corrects for shift-type camera shake, which typically
occurs in macro (close-up) shooting.
Dynamic Effective for video shooting at wide-angle focal lengths,
eliminating the unwanted shaking that typically occurs while walking.
Powered Compensates for hand movement when shooting video at the
telephoto end of the zoom range, where camera shake is magnified.
Tripod When tripod use is detected, the Image Stabilizer is
stopped because it is not needed.
