Assuming you mean subject motion blur, then absolutely not. IS (any type) is all about reducing camera shake and does nothing for subject motion blur (well, nothing good assuming you want to reduce it). To reduce subject motion blur, you need a faster shutter speed (or a slower subject). Optical image stabilization for stills enables using a slower shutter speed than would otherwise be possible when handholding the camera (which will accentuate subject motion – although sometimes that’s good, e.g. waterfalls without a tripod).But aside from that, what are you talking about? Image Stabilization for Stills is a technique that aims to reduce motion blur. For video, that is not the point of IS - in Video it is supposed to reduce camera motion, but motion blur is often actually desirable.
Same benefit – you move the camera in any direction, digital IS helps compensate. One obvious extension of that is automatic horizon leveling (same application as compensating for roll). But as I pointed out above, with digital IS that results in a loss of optical resolution, whereas optical IS (sensor shift) does not.Digital Image Stabilization that crops the sensor or frame to keep it similar with regards to framing to the previously captured frames has no effect on motion blur. So, in which context does it even help to talk about implementing for Stills?
