Patent: Panning Assist Using Image Stabilization
« on: April 16, 2018, 09:21:41 AM »

Northlight has uncovered a USPTO patent that discusses using image stabilization to compensate for panning errors.


Northlight explains:


The idea is to use the IS system to compensate for panning errors as well as camera shake. This needs movement vectors calculating for the whole image area.


This is definitely an interesting idea and use of existing IS technology.

Yeah, but that's so yesterday. What has Canon done today?

You'll have to wait for two years until the patents are published.

Its like a time machine, but you can only view the past.

This is the concept I discussed with Chuck Westfall a few years ago.  The basis for the idea came at the Reno Air Races where I am at the pylons with planes within 100' at 500 mph.  The keeper rate is less than 10%.

Keith, is there a fire pole to slide down if it looks like a racer is going to strike the pylon? Serious and kidding at the same time. Bet it can be scary at times.

We have to sign a waiver that includes possible death.  There is nowhere to take cover- flat desert.  Sometimes the planes get a bit close- that point where you take your eye from the viewfinder.
