Image Stabilization (or Nikon’s Vibration Reduction) is a feature available in some Canon and Nikon DSLR lenses. By simply activating the Image Stabilization (IS), the photographer can take sharp photos in low light (hence low shutter speeds) without the aid of a tripod and the photos won’t turn out blurry.

Image Stabilization or Vibration Reduction functions to lessen the effects from vibrations during shooting, making the lens more stable and consequentially creating sharper photographers.
