Fujifilm X-t3 Could Lack Eature In-body Image Stabilization

Fujifilm X-T3  Could Lack eature In-Body Image Stabilization

Usually we find image stabilization features inside of lenses themselves, but having it built into the camera body means that all lenses you put on it will benefit from it, which is obviously a huge advantage. Unfortunately for those hoping to see that in the Fujifilm X-T3, you guys will be disappointed.

This is according to a report from Fuji Rumors who claims that according to their sources, the X-T3 will not come with in-body image stabilization (IBIS). Should we be surprised? In a way not really, especially since the X-T1 and X-T2 both do not have the feature. However there was a glimmer of hope because you might have heard that Fujifilm is working on a new camera called the X-H1 which is rumored to feature IBIS, which in turn has spurred speculation that maybe the company could bring it to the X-T3.

Panasonic G9 Offers Pro-level Features, 20 Fps Bursts, Huge Evf And Class-leading Image Stabilization

Panasonic G9Panasonic's new Lumix DC-G9 is the company's first mirrorless camera aimed specifically at professional stills photographers. Geared for high-speed capture at up to 20fps, the G9 offers the same 20MP Four Thirds sensor as the video-centric GH5, but with tweaked image processing for better JPEG image quality. If 20 Megapixels isn't enough for you, the G9 is able to shift its sensor (more on that below) eight times to create an 80MP Raw image with ultra-high resolution.

The G9's image stabilization is as good as you'll find on any interchangeable lens cameras, capable of reducing shake by up to 6.5 stops. Panasonic claims that this system still offers that level of stabilization at wider focal lengths when using non-stabilized lenses, and maintains it at longer focal lengths with those with built-in IS, where it can use 'Dual I.S. 2.'

Panasonic Worlds First Makeup Design Tool Utilizing Image Recognition

Panasonic Develops Worlds First Makeup Design Tool Utilizing Image Recognition and Processing Technologies - Fareastgizmos
Panasonic has developed an industry-first “Makeup Design Tool,” which lets users intuitively and easily design makeup by using a touch pen and applying makeup to a facial photograph. Working closely with professional makeup artists, Panasonic has transformed “makeup,” which has traditionally been an analog technology, into digital. User can design makeup as though she is actually applying makeup. The tool replicates the colors and textures of cosmetics, and the brush tool can actually respond to pen pressure to apply a denser colored makeup. The brush tip size can also be adjusted.


Using facial recognition technology, the tool analyzes the proportions of one’s face, which is fundamental when applying makeup (the balance of each part of one’s face such as the eyes or nose) and displays tips on how to apply makeup. For example, the tool analyzes the balance when one’s face is divided vertically into 3 parts (compared against equal proportions), and can show tips on how to apply makeup for a better balance using any facial image. The makeup designed can also be superimposed on moving facial images captured by the same tablet to simulate what it would look like under actual lighting.

The tool may be used for a wide range of applications, for example, as a communication tool that can be used by beauty advisors to speak to customers at cosmetic counters, to recommend makeup to customers at photo studios, wedding venues, beauty salons, and by beauty and cosmetology schools to create educational materials and for makeup technique training. The Panasonic Makeup Design Tool is available to experience in the Panasonic booth at CEATEC JAPAN 2017.

Denso's New Image Sensor Employed For Lexus Ls

Denso's New Image Sensor Employed for Lexus LS

Denso Corp developed a new "stereo image sensor" and "milliwave radar" for improving safety by detecting obstacles, white lines, etc.

Stereo image sensor
The stereo image sensor can detect obstacles with various shapes such as pedestrians, vehicles and guardrails by using 3D image processing technology called "Dense Stereo Matching Technology." In addition, it can detect an unoccupied road surface (free space) on which the vehicle can run. As a result, it realizes a function to control the steering and avoid obstacles in addition to an emergency automatic braking function.

Canon Unveils Three New Binoculars Featuring Enhanced Image Stabilization Technologies

Canon unveils three new binoculars featuring enhanced image stabilization technologies - FareastgizmosCanon today announced three new additions to its portfolio of Image Stabilized Binoculars with the 14×32 IS, 12×32 IS and 10×32 IS. While all current Canon binoculars are equipped with an image stabilization (IS) function, new to these binocular models is Lens Shift Image Stabilization Technology.

The IS technology, found in Canon EF lenses, allows users to see an even sharper image by moving the IS lens to correct optical axis. This technology incorporates a vibration gyro mechanism that assists in canceling out the effects of user-shake or movement.
The new binoculars are the first Canon binoculars to feature Powered Image Stabilization, a feature frequently found in Canon digital cameras and camcorders. Even the slightest shake when using high- magnification binoculars could translate into a blurred or unstable image from the binocular. When a user utilizes the Powered IS user-shake and movement can be quickly corrected and image quality remains intact.
Canon's new 14×32 IS, 12×32 IS and 10×32 IS binocular models are scheduled to be available November 2017 for an estimated retail price of $1449.00, $1399.00 and $1349.00 respectively.

Fujifilm X-t2s Rumored To Feature In-body Image Stabilization

Fujifilm X-T2S Rumored To Feature In-Body Image Stabilization

Last year Fujifilm announced the successor the X-T1 mirrorless camera in the form of the Fujifilm X-T2. Now it seems that thanks to the folks at Fuji Rumors, they have heard some rumblings about a potential successor that could be called the X-T2S, and one possible feature of the camera might have been revealed.

According to the report, it seems that one potential feature of the X-T2S is that it will come with in-body image stabilization. What this means is that regardless of whatever lens you pop onto it, there will be some form of image stabilization offered. At the moment not ever XF lens by Fujifilm comes with stabilization, so no doubt if this feature is true, it will prove to be a boon to users.

Sony Develops Back-illuminated Time-of-flight Image Sensor

Sony Develops Back-Illuminated Time-of-Flight Image Sensor With the Industry’s Smallest Pixel PitchSony has developed a back-illuminated time-of-flight (ToF) image sensor with a 10µm pixel pitch, the industry’s smallest. This accomplishment was made possibly combining the ToF image sensor technology of Softkinetic and Sony’s back-illuminated CMOS image sensor technology. With ToF technology, the distance to an object is measured by the time it takes for light from a light source to reach the object and reflect back to the sensor. ToF image sensors detect distance information for every pixel, resulting in highly accurate depth maps.
