Olympus IBIS limitations and the earth's rotation
1

Dear all,

I have read a statement that supposedly comes from Olympus, which says that the stabilization achieved in the OM-D EM1/2 is limited by the earth's rotation. Here is one example

Of course, we know the acceleration vector due to rotation at every point on the earth's surface, but the camera does not have that information. However, It seems like the camera could in principle determine its location on the earth very precisely and its orientation reasonably well, so it could try to take the earth's acceleration into account. Has anyone thought about this possibility?

Best regards,
Jeff
