The Super SteadyShot® function works using angular speed sensors and shifting the image sensor to compensate for the camera-shake. When the angular speed sensors detect motion, the Super SteadyShot function shifts the image sensor along the X and Y axes to balance the camera-shake.
You can shoot images using slower shutter speeds than with digital cameras without Super SteadyShot technology. This helps you capture better images in a variety of shooting situations.
NOTE: Be aware that the effectiveness also depends on the attached lens, the set focal length, and shooting conditions. The effectiveness of the Super SteadyShot function may decrease in the following circumstances:
- The more zoom magnification that is used, the more the camera is influenced by camera shake.
- If the camera is bumped or jarred at the same time the shutter button is pressed (without holding the shutter button halfway down).
- Using a Konica Minolta™ lens set for Macro shooting.
- Using a Konica Minolta lens with a focus limiter function set to anything other than infinity - other than SSM and Macro (D) lenses.
