In-body image stabilization is a key component to shooting good video. To find out which one has the best in-body Image Stabilization, Imaging Resource has compared four very popular crop-sensor cameras in the Panasonic GH5, the Fujifilm X-T4, the Olympus E-M1 III and the Sony a6600.
Shooting all four at the same time and at the same focal lengths, and with no OIS or electronic IS to come to their aid, we’ll steadily increase the difficulty level to see which IBIS systems can take the heat as the bumps and shakes begin to rise. Which model will stay smooth under pressure?
For this comparison, Imaging Resource has designed a special IS rig that allows up to four cameras to shoot the same scene while sustaining roughly the same bumps and shakes as we go, for a true apples-to-apples test of how the IS is handling each situation. And they shoot with comparable prime lenses at both 35mm and 50mm equivalent fields of view, while employing lenses that are not equipped with optical IS.
