Looks like the next generation of IS is making its way to pocket cameras. Watch this video and see for yourself. I’m super impressed by this feature and hope that it will be coming in the next generation of Lumix cameras.
How it works – “The HYBRID O.I.S. + (Hybrid Optical Image Stabilizer Plus) effectively compensates for the camera’s 5 types of movement, which is helpful in recording blur-free photo and video. Level Shot Function detects the horizontal line of recording image and keeps it even if the camera is tilted”
