We just started testing cameras, and our test bench v0.7 is rather simplistic, so we decided to launch without text in the test boxes. If you have any suggestions on what to improve, let us know here. As we gather your suggestions, we plan on making more frequent changes to our methodology and we'll be able to add text to the reviews in the near future.

FHD Video Stabilization

Updated
What it is: The stabilization system in the camera that helps provide steady footage.
When it matters: When you want a lightweight production without Gimbal or other stability devices.

In Body Video Image Stabilization In FHD

What it is: A stabilization system that's in the body of the camera, as opposed to the traditional method of stabilizing the image with a lens with an optical stabilization system. Both systems can be combined to increase stability. The in-body image stabilization (IBIS) allows the use of lenses without stabilization. This test look at the presence of stabilization in video mode at FHD resolution.

Walking Test in FHD

What it is: This test is done at Full HD resolution and a frame rate of 30 fps. We walk normally with the camera in the hand while filming a black rectangle on the wall. After, we measure for each frame the distance in pixels from the top of the square to the upper border of the frame (the sum of all the distance seen on the graph above). The result displayed is the sum of the distance pixels divided by the number of frames. It can be seen as the total amount of movements of the image.

The camera is set to the high / boost stabilization mode

When it matters: When you like to include motion in your video without a jittery image.

Running Test in FHD

What it is: This test is done at a Full HD resolution and a frame rate of 30 fps. We run with the camera in the hand while filming a black rectangle on the wall. After, we measure the distance in pixels from the top of the square to the upper border of the frame (the sum of all the distance seen on the graph above) for each frame. The result is the sum of the distance pixels divided by the number of frames. It can be seen as the total amount of movements of the image.

The camera is set to the high / boost stabilization mode

When it matters: When you like action shots of sports.

Crop

What it is: The crop when selecting the high/boost stabilization mode. Some cameras don't have the computational power to support a Full HD resolution with the stabilization system activated. In this case, they crop the image to reduce the amount of information to compute.
When it matters: When you want to have the full sensor image readout with full HD resolution and a stabilization activated.
