[IMPOSSIBLE] Video Image Stabilization?
« on: September 15, 2012, 09:56:56 AM »
I'm not sure if this is even possible, but I know it's on some of the newer Sony DSLR's and it has proved very useful. Even if it's not a huge improvement some stabilization would help.

Not going to happen.  You're much better off using a stabilized lens or stabilizing in post anyway.  If stabilizing in post remember to use a higher shutter speed to avoid funky motion blur effects.

Also, if I remember correctly, Sony DSLRs use a "sensor-shift" to do stabilization which is a physical mechanism built-in the camera and thus impossible to do with Canon DSLRs.

The ARM cpu will probably die if we try something like this  ;D

I'm not familiar with how Magic Lantern gets it powers but maybe if it is possible to access the sensor cleaning mechanism and some sort of fuzzy math then poof! I know it's a fantasy but it would be great to use with vintage lenses  8)

That mechanism just wobbles a piece of plastic over the sensor.
