Automatic image stabilization

The Q2 takes the optical image stabilization system of the original Q and adds an extra layer of control. As well as on and off, stabilization can be set to kick in only at exposure times of longer than 1/60 sec, to save on power drain at faster shutter speeds where camera shake isn't likely to be a significant concern. How much difference this makes to total battery life in normal shooting situations remains to be seen but it's a feature that makes sense on a fixed focal length camera.
