Stabilized lens + stabilized body = double stabilization?

Recommended Posts

OSS (stabilized optics) and IBIS (stabilized sensor) work in conjunction so the combined stabilization will be better than either one separately. The difference isn't huge though: remember that if the combined stabilization is twice as effective, it's only one stop. So e.g. if both OSS and IBIS give 4 stops of stabilization, the combination might give up to 5 stops of stabilization (not 8).

Each type of stabilization has its strengths and weaknesses though: OSS can't correct for roll motion but from personal experiece it's better for video than IBIS. OSS can also correct pitch and yaw motion better than IBIS, which is especially relevant for long tele lenses. When combined, you benefit from the strengths of each type of stabilization.
