PanasonicPanasonic FZ-30 Mega Optical Image Stabilizer explained : With digital cameras there's more to picture quality than pixels and lenses. Panasonic has taken picture quality to new levels by equipping Panasonics Lumix cameras with optical image stabilization technology originally developed for video cameras. Panasonics Mega Optical Image Stabilizer helps minimize the hand movement that causes many photos to look blurry and poorly focused. This new feature was build in the recently announced Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ-30. The newly incorporated Extra Optical Zoom extends the zoom ratio by using the center part of the high resolution CCD, to achieve 15.3x for 5-Megapixel and 19.1x for 3-Megapixel images with minimal deterioration.
Panasonic FZ-30 Optical Image Stabilizer explainedEliminate Blurring from Hand Movement
The key to this Panasonic technology is a built-in gyro sensor that detects any hand movement. Once hand movement is identified, a signal is relayed to a tiny microcomputer inside the camera, which instantly calculates the compensation needed. A linear motor then shifts the optical image stabilizer lens as necessary to guide incoming light from the image straight to the CCD. Plus, the highly evolved Venus Engine II LSI makes the process from detection to compensation even faster and more accurate. The Panasonic Lumix FZ30 is equiped with Mega O.I.S. This helps extend the Mega Optical Image Stabilizer correction range all the way to four steps below (i.e., slower than) the shutter speed - generally considered to be the limit for hand movement compensation. It is calculated by dividing 1 by the focal length.

Expands Your Shooting Capabilities
In addition to giving you clear, sharp shots, the MEGA Optical Image Stabilizer also expands your shooting possibilities. It was developed to help compensate for camera movement, but the main goal is to achieve the highest possible image quality. You won't even notice it working - all you'll see are the clear, beautiful, richly expressive images. There are two Stabilization Modes:

Mode 1: Compensates for Hand Movement All the Time : In this mode, image stabilization is continuously on. It helps you to compose shots in the LCD monitor and to see the focusing condition more clearly.

Mode 2: More Definitive Correction for Higher Quality Image : This image stabilization mode was developed to help you obtain some of the clearest photographs possible, despite unintentional hand movement. It corrects the image the moment you press the shutter button, providing maximum compensation in all directions. Since the light is received near the center of the lens, this mode gives you clear, sharp pictures and higher resolution.
