Why is hybrid image stabilisation needed? What is hybrid image stabilisation? What extra advantages does hybrid image stabilisation add to the camera?
Xperia 1 has hybrid image stabilisation. Hybrid image stabilisation means that the camera combines optical image stabilisation (OIS) and electronic image stabilisation (EIS) simultaneously.
With hybrid image stabilisation, you can take blur-less videos even in challenging conditions. Optical Steady Shot is based on Sony’s digital imaging technology as well as the optimised algorithm to run OIS and EIS at the same time. We have always had Steady Shot, which is EIS based on digital imaging technology. Together with this, we introduce Optical Steady Shot as well as an improved algorithm to run two technologies in the most optimised way, so that you can take blur-free videos in low light even while walking.
