InvensensePentax selects InvenSense for image stabilization : InvenSense, provider of integrated motion sensing solutions for consumer electronics, announced that Pentax Corp has selected its IDG-1000 series dual-axis gyroscope for use in the Optio A30 digital camera and for next generation digital still cameras with optical image stabilization features. InvenSense’s gyro is used to precisely measure the camera user’s hand shake which is compensated for using Pentax’s Shake Reduction (SR) technology for improved image capture in low-light settings and telephoto use. Image stabilization is quickly becoming a standard feature in digital cameras and is a key factor for why consumers are replacing their early-version cameras with new models.

The IDG-1000 is the world’s first integrated MEMS gyroscope which addresses the widespread and fast growing need for image stabilization in digital cameras. Based on InvenSense’s proprietary and patented Nasiri-Fabrication process, the IDG-1000 is an integrated dual-axis (X- & Y- axis) solution using proven silicon technology resulting in the smallest foot print and the most robust solution in the market.


Pentax - Shake Reduction
“Our Shake Reduction technology is a key feature to improve image quality for low-light settings and telephoto capture and separates our cameras from the competition,” said Tahei Morisawa, General Manager of First Development Department, Imaging System Business Headquarters in Pentax. “InvenSense’s dual-axis gyroscope solution provides the most accurate measurement that can ensure the best image stabilization results for our cameras and customers.”
