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]


    isn't it awesome when new tech helps some one who previously had trouble with it

      It is good to see that tech done right can simply change lives and share the pleasure he gets from photography.
      It's awesome like you say :)
      Now he can enter the "Gizmodo Photo Challenge"

    I have essential tremor also, it's terrible, I need to rest my hand on a stable object to get some sort of stability most of the time.. I'm an electrnics technician, so I've felt the pain when trying to focus on being accurate (When measuring voltages on power supplies, for example... BOOM!). A drug called Inderal helps a fair bit.

    I hope that the cat is not eating Chicken with bones. Chicken bones are bad for cats because they can get stuck in their throats.
