How Olympus 5-axis image stabilization works

We've talked about Olympus 5-axis image stabilization before, but as always, there's nothing better than to see it action with our own eyes.

Image stabilization systems have been around for many years, helping users steadying their photos and videos, but it's something usually hidden from sight, inside the camera bodies or lenses. These systems got better and better over the years, and in 2012 Olympus announced a 5-axis system that was able to compensate not only lateral and vertical movement, but even rotations as well.

It's the kind of complex system many would like to see in action, and that's precisely what you'll be able to do in the following video, uncovering an Olympus OM-D E-M5 II sensor doing it best to compensate moving around the camera, and showing to what it extent it can move around

Apparently, the sensor could move around even further if they had used different settings. But just as it is, it's more than impressive to see what it continuously does to reduce our "shaking".
