Product Description



FAQ is a new ongoing series of B&H Explora posts regarding frequently asked photography-related questions. Topics we plan on covering include cameras, lenses, flash, accessories, and photo technologies. Many of the questions we’d like to answer will be based on feedback from our in-house experts at the B&H Chat lines and online sales. We’ll also choose topics based on listener feedback, so if there’s a topic you’d like us to address, let us know about it in the Comments field that follows this post.
Our first FAQ topic is image stabilization, an interesting and very useful feature that has become increasingly complicated over the past few years, with different types and methods available.

1. What is image stabilization and why is it a big deal?

Image stabilization, or IS, as it’s often abbreviated, is a technology that enables you to take sharper, blur-free pictures with your camera by compensating for camera movement that can introduce blur. Though typically associated with cameras and lenses, image stabilization is a feature commonly used to minimize, if not eliminate, the blurring effects of shaky hands when using binoculars, video cameras, telescopes, and even smartphone cameras.

2. What causes camera shake?

There are a number of causes of camera shake, the most common culprit being unsteady hands. A strong stiff breeze that catches the open end of your lens shade can also be enough to rob you of a tack-sharp photograph. When shooting with wide-angle lenses, camera shake isn’t as noticeable, due to the wide angle of view being recorded. But if you tend to handhold telephoto lenses, image stabilization becomes an increasingly significant factor for guaranteeing sharp results.
