The EOS R5 and R6 cameras are the first cameras in the EOS line-up to feature in-body image stabilisation (IBIS). The sensor provides roll, X-Y and pitch-yaw correction. At up to 5 stops, this feature offers you the potential for shooting hand-held in a greater variety of scenarios, and with more confidence in shake-free images.
That’s good news. But it goes further.
Canon announced that the in-built stabilisation also works in combination with its optical image stabilisation (IS) technology to provide up to 8 stops of image stabilisation. Canon states that this is a two-way communication, with the camera and lens continuously feeding back.
It doesn’t end there either.
The combinations aren’t additive. A Canon lens with 3-stop IS doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ll get 8 stops; nor does a lens with no IS mean that you’re limited to 5 stops.
Here’s a list of lenses that offer more than the in-built 5-stop IS.
