Lens-shift Vibration Reduction helps minimize the blur caused by camera shake, especially in dim light and at telephoto focal lengths.
Motion Blur Reduction
The camera automatically selects faster shutter speeds to compensate for subject movement when it's picked up via the Motion Detection function. Motion Blur Reduction, like Vibration Reduction in the lens, also helps the camera compensate for movement caused by unsteady hands, in order to prevent blurry shots.
80-1600 ISO Sensitivity
High ISO sensitivity permits the maximum use of available natural light, avoiding the need for flash or long exposure times. By enabling the selection of faster shutter speeds, it also makes it easier to capture fast-moving subjects with greater clarity. Low ISO provides rich, saturated colors.
