DOES IMAGE STABILIZING BELONG IN THE CAMERA OR LENS?
Although Canon and Nikon are committed to Image Stabilization (Canon) and Vibration Reduction (Nikon) in lenses, almost all other camera makers are researching putting such systems into digital SLR camera bodies where their entire array of lenses would benefit from the feature. Both mechanical and optical systems are being researched. Sticky problems include whether systems should be mechanical or optical, whether they can overcome vertical, horizontal and panning shake, and how to avoid violating present Nikon and Canon patents. In point-and-shoot, Nikon expects to add Vibration Reduction, Canon does not think Image stabilization is necessary for point-and-shoots.
