In Body Video Image Stabilization In 4k

What it is: An in-body image stabilization system (IBIS) is a multi-axis mechanism that allows the sensor to slightly move in order to compensate for camera shake. This system can be combined (or not) with lens optical image stabilization (OIS) and the camera's electronic image stabilization to increase image stability.
When it matters: When you want better stabilization or use lenses that don't have optical image stabilization (OIS).
