The MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) is integrated in the iA mode for DMC-XS3 to suppress hand-shake. Apart from the digital image correction, MEGA O.I.S. corrects a jolt of light axis by shifting the O.I.S. lens unit to offset it. Thus the image is not affected digitally nor deteriorated at all. You get clear, sharp images in exchange for nothing.

The Intelligent Handheld Nightshot Mode enables capturing glamorous night scenery without even using a tripod.
