In 2012, Olympus launched a new 5-axis sensor-shift image stabilization system in the retro OM-D E-M5 mirrorless camera. If you’d like a better idea of how the system works, check out the video above, which shows the technology in action.
Micro 4/3rds Photography made the video by strapping a Panasonic Lumix GH4 with a Samyang 7.5mm f/3.5 fisheye lens to the front of an Olympus OM-D E-M5 II and pointing it straight into the camera. They then started recording video with both cameras and waved the E-M5 II around to see how the sensor reacts to the movement. As you can see, it shifts around quite a bit to try and stabilize what it sees.
