Canon News website has released a new Canon patent. According to this patent, Canon is working on a dual IBIS + Lens IS system to be used in the cheaper and entry-level cameras EOS M and Powershot series.
Similar patents exist for Canon’s DSLR and full-frame mirrorless cameras. But this patent shows that Canon is also developing the Dual IS system for enthusiast-level ILCs and fixed-lens point-and-shoot cameras.
The IBIS + Lens IS modules cause vibration when used on smaller ILC like EOS M or compact cameras such as the G1X. The content of the patent clearly shows how Canon plans to solve this situation. Canon News says that “what Canon is doing is finding a way to reduce the vibration caused by the IS units.”
What’s more, Canon News says the patent describes “in very accurate detail” how these cameras could be produced, which gives us hope that the next generation EOS M5 Mark II or G1X Mark IV could actually feature this dual image stabilization system when released. You can take a look at the Japanese patent application for yourself here.
