Man With Uncontrollable Tremors Gives Image Stabilisation Its Truest Test

Camera tests can be somewhat tedious, and if you’re a tried and true camera nerd, you have probably seen experiments and comparisons ad nauseum. But this test, showing the effectiveness of the image stabilisation feature of the Olympus OM-D E-M5, has a personal touch that makes it stand out among the rest.

Vimeo user Fiatopichan suffers from something called essential tremor, causing his hands to shake at a rate of 5-10Hz. You could see why he might be excited by the 5-axis image stabilisation on Olympus’ beauty of a micro four thirds cam. The results are pretty amazing, with the OM-D E-M5 significantly reducing jitter. [Vimeo via PetaPixel]
