Canon Hybrid Stabilization Technology Corrects Bad Photography On More Axes

Canon will include a new Hybrid Image Stabilizer in a forthcoming mystery (!) lens, which corrects both rotational and shift movement.

I've always been partial to the elegant in-body, floating-sensor stabilization systems like those in the Sony Alpha line, but this tech, like all of Canon's IS, will be in-lens, and therefore based, at least a little, on magic. Twist 'n shift correction sounds great on paper, but without any sense of how it works or, you know, having tried it, it's hard to know how well it'll work. What we know for now: the lens is due before the end of the year. [Canon]
