When you take photos of family and friends against the beautiful nightscapes in the background, the O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) helps you to shoot them with using the slow-synchro flash.
Moreover, when the scenery is fantastic or the sky fills with extraordinary light after sunset, but using a flash won’t make everything bright enough. The O.I.S. helps you to shoot it with a slow shutter speed without using a flash.
・People against evening backdrops
Normal Picture Mode:
The background are too dark.
Night Portrait Mode:
The background are blurry.
Jitter is common in zoom shots because of their narrow viewing angle. Plus, the lens aperture is also closed, and shutter speed becomes slower.
However, with the O.I.S., you can get clear, sharp zoom shots every time.
・Dynamic sports scenes
・Natural expressions of animals
・Smiles of children
When you take photos of family and friends in party scenes or in a restaurant with subtle lighting that creates a special mood, the O.I.S. enables you to capture blur-free photos.
・At your home
・In a restaurant
The light ruins the special mood and makes the background dark.
The shutter speed is slower and you end up with a blurry image.
Jitter is common in close-up shots because of their narrow viewing angle.
Plus, there are sometimes not enough light, but flash light is too strong in close-up shots.
In this kind of situations, it is possible to get clear, sharp shots with the O.I.S. without a flash.
・Appetizing dishes and sweets
・Tiniest details of objects
* For underwater shooting, use a waterproof TS(FT) Series model or a ZS(TZ) Series model in an optional Marine Case.
・Compact, lightweight camera
The O.I.S. is effective for video recording. However, jitter can be a bigger problem when you shoot while walking or playing with your children. The MEGA / POWER O.I.S. with Active Mode provides a more effective countermeasure against blurring, especially for wide-angle shots.
Furthermore, the DMC-ZS30(TZ40) is equipped with the HYBRID O.I.S.+ that detects and effectively compensates for the camera's 5 types of movement.
