Patent: Image Sensor Stabilization

Our previous post about what appeared to be image sensor stabilization in drawing from a lens stabilization patent proved to be false after further translation by Canon News.

However, an image sensor stabilization patent was uncovered.

From Canon News:

This patent shows clearly that canon is finally looking at stablizing the sensor.

Part 402 in the diagram is to move the actual sensor as described in the corresponding notations;

401 calculates a target value of an amount of rotation drive of the imaging device on the basic of a roll correction angle. On the basis of the target value of the calcuated amount of shift drive and the target value of rotation drive, the driving mechanism unit 402 moves the imaging device, so that shake correction and tilt correction is performed.

We missed after publishing this patent, that Keith at Northlight also uncovered this patent.

We’ve updated the previous post.
