Does the SONY RX1 have image stabilization?
Sep 12, 2012

Does the SONY RX1 have image stabilization? For stills and video? For stills only? For video only?

This is not a thread about whether it should have IS or if it needs IS, but whether it has it or not and to what extent it has it. Thank you.

The press release seems to emphasize the video capabilities of the RX1.

And I suppose image stabilization is essential for video.

The specs on DPREVIEW says that it does not have it. Just an electronic one for video.


If i check the specs found on SONY's site, it says that, and I quote

Steady Shot Mode:Active : [Still image] Optical [Movie] Active Mode, Optical type with electronic compensation (Anti-rolling)

Advanced Features
Sweep Panorama : Sweep Panorama
Face Detection : 8 Faces (Off / On(Registered Faces) / On)
Image Stabilization : SteadyShotâ„¢ Image Stabilization

Which seems to state that it does have image stabilization not only for movies but also for video and are optical...


What do I believe?

Anybody have any definite info?

Thank you very much.

Sony RX1
