Intelligent Optical Image Stabilization System with Powered and Dynamic Modes and Auto On/Off
The XA20 offers an advanced optical image stabilization system suited for reducing image blur in a wide variety of shooting situations. The different image stabilization options can be selected manually, or Intelligent IS can use an automatic detection system to identify the proper stabilization mode for the situation. Featured on the XA20 and new to Canon Professional Camcorders is Dynamic Mode, which provides electronic correction of roll and tilt.
New Dynamic IS
Used for image stabilization at the wide end, Dynamic IS builds on translational (up-down/left-right) stabilization, adding roll axis correction, horizontal roll correction and vertical roll correction for five-axis correction. Image distortion is substantially reduced, even when shooting while in motion.
Macro IS corrects angular and shift-type shake in wide-angle shots.
Used for image stabilization in telephoto shooting, Powered IS corrects for low-frequency camcorder shake.
