Myth: Anti-Shake means the photos will always be sharp.
Image stabilizer, Vibration Reduction, SteadyShot and other less known titles are just different tags manufacturers use for one similar system: Vibration reducer. This system reduces vibration caused by shaky hands, providing you with sharp images. This feature can be deemed a must-have if you’re planning to use a telephoto lens with your camera, because any little vibration to a telephoto lens has a multiple shake effect. And all vibration reducer systems in cameras of different manufacturers work equally well.
However, you need to note that this feature doesn’t reduce movement of an object. Therefore, even with the advanced technology of an anti-shake system, it still won’t guarantee a sharp result if the object being photographed is constantly moving. You will still have to learn how to maximize the use of this feature to get maximum results. Buying a more expensive lens or camera body doesn’t guarantee more success.

An image sensor is a device that converts an optical image to an electric signal. It is used mostly in digital cameras and other imaging devices. Early sensors were video camera tubes but a modern one is typically a charge-coupled device (CCD) or a complementary metal–oxide–semiconductor (CMOS) active pixel sensor. Today, most digital still cameras […]
