Canon "Dual Sensing IS"

Nikkei reports few interesting details about image stabilization implementation in the recently announced Canon G7X Mark II compact camera leveraging the high speed of its image sensor:

"While the previous product stabilizes images with a gyroscope, the new product takes into account the data on the amount of camera shake obtained from the image data collected by the CMOS sensor. Canon calls this function "Dual Sensing IS."

In addition, a "panning" mode was added by using the image stabilization function. The camera instantly analyzes the moving speed of the camera and the moving speed and direction of the subject and calculates the best shooting conditions. As a result, it became easy to take an image with a flowing background while stabilizing the image of the subject.
