Use the image stabilizer to compensate for camcorder shake in order to achieve steadier shots. When taking
photos, you can turn image stabilization on and off. When recording clips, there are 3 methods of image
stabilization; select the method that best suits your needs.
: Standard IS compensates for a lower degree of camcorder shake, such as when shooting while
remaining stationary, and is suitable for shooting natural-looking scenes.
: Dynamic IS compensates for a higher degree of camcorder shake, such as when shooting
while walking, and is more effective as the zoom approaches full wide angle.
* Not available when recording 4K clips, using slow & fast motion recording mode or taking photos.
: Powered IS is most effective when you are stationary and zooming in on far subjects using high
zoom ratios (the more you approach the telephoto end). This mode is not suitable for tilting and panning shots.
