The rotation of the Earth prevents the Olympus engineers to improve the performance of the stabilization system image
Last week, Olympus announced the details of the E-M1 Mark II Micro Four Thirds system, which will be headed by the family of the OM-D and will be released before the end of this year.
The camera is characterized by a built-in image stabilization system Olympus Sync IS, which the manufacturer estimates at the 5.5 level of exposure. Using lens M. ZUIKO Digital ED 12-100mm f4.0 IS PRO system allows you to compensate for the 6.5 degrees of exposure.
During the interview, which gave edition of Amateur Photographer, the representative of Olympus, Secwa kitaoka (Setsuya Kataoka), it was found that six and a half degrees of stabilization at this stage is the theoretical maximum value. According to the developer, to further enhance this option prevents the rotation of our planet, which will interfere with the operation of the gyro sensor.
In other words, the E-M1 Mark II will offer the highest quality and the highest possible image stabilization system. I wonder when the developers will find a way to bypass announced by Olympus engineers limit.
