g Vibration Reduction

Vibration reduction effectively corrects blur, caused by slight hand movement 
known as camera shake, that commonly occurs when shooting with zoom applied 
or at slow shutter speeds. Vibration reduction can be used in all shooting modes. 
Turn vibration reduction off when using a tripod to stabilize the camera during 
shooting.

When vibration reduction is enabled, the current setting is displayed in the 
monitor during shooting (when off is selected, an icon for the current setting is not 
displayed in the monitor) (

Notes on Vibration Reduction

• Vibration reduction may take a few seconds to activate after the power is turned on, or the camera 

enters shooting mode from playback mode. Wait until the display stabilizes before shooting.

• Due to characteristics of the vibration reduction function, images displayed in the camera’s 

monitor immediately after shooting may appear blurry.

• Vibration reduction may be unable to completely eliminate the effects of camera shake in some 

situations.

• “VR” stands for vibration reduction.

On (default setting)

Vibration reduction is enabled when taking pictures and recording movies. 
Camera detects and factors out panning movements when reducing camera 
shake. When camera is panned horizontally, for example, vibration reduction 
reduces only vertical shake. If camera is panned vertically, vibration reduction 
affects only horizontal shake.

Off

Vibration reduction is not enabled.
