Image stabilization

Updated: 04/26/2017 by Computer Hope

Image stabilization, also known as IS, is a technique used to reduce the blur that occurs in a digital photographic image when the camera is moving at the moment of exposure. Stabilization can be performed electronically at the hardware level, or as part of post-processing at the software level. The most common IS techniques compensate for pan (horizontal movement) and tilt (vertical movement), but may also be used to account for camera rotation.
