Olympus’ 5-Axis Image Stabilization May Soon Arrive on Sony A-Mount Cameras

In light of the ever-tightening bond between camera manufacturing giants, Olympus is rumored to be working hand-in-hand with Sony to bring their 5-Axis image stabilization technology to Sony’s upcoming A-mount cameras.

The news, reported by Sony Alpha Rumors, cites a known source who is presumed to be familiar with the development.

That would suggest that when the next batch of Sony’s A-mount cameras do make their debut in early 2014, they’ll be sporting 5-axis image stabilization goodness. The unnamed source indicated that “Sony and Olympus engineers are now developing [the 5-axis image stabilization] further to make it work on Sony’s next Full Frame cameras.”

Olympus’ 5-axis image stabilization has clear benefits over traditional 2-axis image stabilization used by other systems. It’s the first to cover vertical angle rotation, horizontal angle rotation, vertical shift, horizontal shift, and rolling camera shake all in one IS package.

Sony purchased a stake in Olympus in late 2012, and the two companies have been taking advantage of the partnership. Most recently, it was announced that Olympus would be supplying Sony with parts for upcoming lenses.

You can view Olympus’ 5-axis image stabilization technology in action in the video below:
