CES 2010: Sony Optical SteadyShot

Filed under: Cameras — Laura Moncur @ 10:00 am

Optical image stabilization (O.I.S.) has come a long way over the last few years and the best showcase of that is this exhibit at the Sony booth this year at CES. They had two cameras sitting on a moving platform, one with Optical SteadyShot and the other without.

Even though both cameras were on the same jiggling platform, the picture on the left is jumping all over the place, while the one on the right is smooth as silk.

This feature of their video cameras was of special interest to me because I film and sell Walking DVDs at Starling Fitness. I’m actually in the market for a new video camera and the Sony HDR-CX550V is looking really appealing to me.

Too bad it’s retailing at almost $1300. I’ll have to wait until the price drops a bit.
