A new Canon patent for in-body image stabilization has appeared, and it looks like it is being worked on for DSLRs as well. This is the first time we’ve seen evidence of IBIS appearing in a mirror slapper.
Northlight says this patent deals with compositional issues and vignetting that could arise when the sensor moves for stability.
Could we see this in an upcoming DSLR? I think that would be a good thing for the EOS lineup, perhaps we’ll see it in the upcoming EOS 90D or EOS-1D X Mark III.

It's about time that Canon is getting IBIS in their DSLRs and it's really useful over just IS lenses. Pentax has had it since 2006 and Sony since 2008 in their mirrored DSLRs.

Its probably long overdue for IBIS to be installed in DSLRs. I know that Canons lenses have unmatched IBIS in lenses but having it in camera is also a plus when one uses lenses without IBIS.

IBIS in a DSLR for the first time ever? First evidence of IBIS being used in a "mirror slapper"?

Not sure what you all been smokin', but my Pentax K20D from 2008 (a DSLR or "Mirror Slapper" as you'd call it) had In-Body Sensor based Image Stabilization. So did the K7 that followed and the K5, and the K3 and even the Full Frame K1 and K1mII and I'm sure there were countless other models before and in-between those. So far from the first ever, perhaps the first in a Canon model.

My Sony A100 had IBIS as did the Minolta 5D and 7D before it. This was a Minolta development that Sony inherited.

It looks like APS-C sensor by the size of it and then pop-up flash. What it means is that Canon did not abandon the DSLR as yet. I hope it means 7D though, but that is my wish alone.

I agree, it looks like an APS-C camera body but guys, there is no way Canon will introduce it in an cheap APS-C camera first. Yes, there are expensive APS-C options but according to this page the 7D series moved to mirrorless and the 90D, well, the 80D was popular camera among video guys, but no, I don't see it happen. Come on, we're talking Canon. They will give IBIS to the expensive DSLRs and expensive mirrorless cameras first to lure you into buying one of these. It's been the obvious Canon-move for years.

Yes, that's right, also the Olympus DSLR's had it as well, their 4/3 system with mirrors before going to mirrorless micro 4/3, like the E-30 and E-620, probably others

So that's why the 70D was the first DSLR to have dual-pixel autofocus. They were trying to lure 1D and 5D buyers to the crazy-expensive 70D. Thanks for your great insight.

They could introduce it in a rebel series to iron out all the kinks and faults. Once it’s fully working then then the pro cameras will get it.

Or it could go straight into the upcoming 90D as a sweetener in the event that an upgraded version of that camera fills in the gap left by not replacing the 7Dii. And that as a step towards including it in the upcoming high end FF releases over the next 12 months (DSLR and ML).

Patents like this are the result of work done at least 2 years ago and before Canon decided to go full steam ahead on mirrorless. Its not going to happen in today's market where camera sales are dropping so fast.

Of course they will, that's how Canon matures technology before moving it into the 5D and 1D.

It'll go into the mid-tier first and if IBIS v1 is found to fail after 100,000 shots in a 90D then so what, it's only an xxD with a two-year warranty and most users never hit that threshold.

By IBIS v3 they'll be ready to integrate it into the R1 with a shutter-life of 500,000 shots.

What I'm curious about is which APS-C line they are going to put it in first. A DSLR like the illustration in the patent or in an M series?
