<p><a href="http://www.northlight-images.co.uk/canon-camera-rumours-and-info/">Northlight</a> has uncovered a <a href="http://pdfaiw.uspto.gov/.aiw?PageNum=0&docid=20180103207">USPTO</a> patent that discusses using image stabilization to compensate for panning errors.</p>
<p><strong>Northlight explains:</strong></p>
<blockquote><p>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.</p></blockquote>
<p>This is definitely an interesting idea and use of existing IS technology.</p>

Sounds innovative. Are you sure the patent was filed by Canon?

;) ::)

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.
