Canon's Intelligent IS analyzes camera movement and applies a suitable shake correction method for the shooting situation. For stills, the system selects from Normal IS, Panning IS, Macro (Hybrid) IS and Tripod modes. When shooting video, the system selects from Dynamic IS, Powered IS, Macro (Hybrid) IS and Active Tripod IS modes. With Intelligent IS, you can concentrate on image capture, letting the camera make effective IS settings to help capture a steady image.
Still Image Shooting
- Normal IS
Corrects for a wide range of camera movement when shooting stills
- Panning IS
Panning motion is detected so that IS does not interfere with desired camera movement
- Macro (Hybrid) IS
Corrects for shift-type camera shake, which typically occurs in macro (close-up) shooting
When tripod use is detected, Image Stabilizer stops, as it is not needed
- Dynamic IS
Effective for video shooting at wide-angle focal lengths, eliminating the unwanted shaking that typically occurs while walking
- Powered IS
Compensates for hand movement when shooting video at the telephoto end of the zoom range, where camera shake is magnified
- Macro (Hybrid) IS
Corrects for motion blur that is likely to occur when shooting video while walking. Also compensates for the shift-type camera shake common in macro shooting
- Active Tripod IS
When shooting video while using a tripod, the image stabilization is active to compensate for slight camera shake
