Canon Working on Sensor-Shift Image Stabilization System [More Confirmation]

Yesterday Japanese patent hunting website [hi-lo] revealed that Canon is working on sensor shift image stabilization system. This is not the first time we are talking about Canon full frame mirrorless sensor shift image stabilization system.

Canon Latest Sensor shift IS patent

CANON filed a patent of tilting sensor to reduce an eccentricity of lens. This patent is very simple application of IBIS.

Public number] Japanese Unexamined Patent Application Publication No. 2018-194766 (P2018-194766A) click here
[Publication date] December 6, Heisei 20 (2018.12.6)
Patent application title: Camera body having optical correction and lens device

We have Told you a month ago…

If you are a regular leader of our website then we have already published a patent back on October 2018 which talks about Canon working on built-in sensor shift image stabilization system for their mirrorless cameras. [ See here – Canon working on image stabilization system ]

So we have already published information about Canon sensor shift image stabilization system even prior to the Japanese patent hunting website. And most importantly both the patent is bit different that clearly indicates Canon is seriously thinking about implementation of built-in image stabilization system inside their full frame mirrorless cameras.

Canon Representatives Talks about IBIS in Future Canon Mirrorless Models

Now let’s talk about what Canon representatives said about the implementation of sensor-shift image stabilization system inside their future mirrorless cameras. On September 2018 we have published the post which contains major points of Canon ICB product development team interview

Canon for development team clearly said

Canon had a policy against IBIS on DSLRs, but this is not the case for MILCs. Lack of IBIS on EOS R was a result of compromises over body size, cost and heat dissipation for this particular model; they do think it has merits, and will consider it for future models depending on the nature of the camera body.

Canon Combination IS [Dual IS System]

We already know Canon developed Combination IS system for Canon EOS M50 camera. In which they utilizes both OSS and Camera Digital IS together in 4K Video mode to combat camera shake. And once they developed the sensor shift-mechanism they will sure utilize both lens based IS and Sensor based IS.

In general patent takes at least a year of time to become reality. So, we are expecting and as the rumor mills suggest Canon will sure announce a High-End Mirrorless camera in future with built-in image stabilization system. And who know even the EOS Mark II camera may carry built-in image stabilization inside.

Canon Working on In-Body Image Stabilization

Canon EOS R camera

Latest Patent surfaced over the web shows Canon is actively working on Butil-in image stabilization system. Well we have seen and published a lot of patent from Canon but this is the first Canon patent of Sensor shift-image stabilization system.

One of the most unusual thing I have seen in the patent is the publication date is more then 20 year old. If canon do have the blueprint of sensor IS tech then why they wasted so much time and given space and development opportunity of competitors.

Canon In-Body / Sensor Shift Image Stabilization Patent Details

[Issuing country] Japan Patent Office (JP)
[Publication typePublished patent publication (A)Application No.] Japanese Patent Application No. 2017-62669 (P2017-62669)
Date of filing – March 28, Heisei 20 (2017.3.28)
Applicant – Name or Name  Canon Inc.
Name of inventor – Hitoshi Nishitani

PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To make it possible to prevent roller shake and to prevent shift shake by a simplified structure.
An imaging device includes an imaging element, a frame body that supports the imaging element, and a driving member that moves the frame body in a direction parallel to an imaging plane of the imaging element, wherein the driving member , And that the vibrating part of at least one driving member overlaps with the center of the image pickup surface of the image pickup element when viewed from a direction orthogonal to the image pickup surface of the image pickup element Features

Patent Images

We have seen in interviews Canon people told us “Lack of IBIS on EOS R was a result of compromises over body size, cost and heat dissipation for this particular model; they do think it has merits, and will consider it for future models “

So we can expect Canon will use it’s in-body image stabilization system in their Mirrorless line-up of cameras, Since Canon had a policy against IBIS on DSLR.

Canon Said - Expect Big Things

In an interview to dpreview Canon representatives said that – “We want to surprise and astonish you, so please expect big things”. After the announcement of Canon EOS R camera, We have mixed reaction from professionals, EOS R isn’t the model PROS are waiting for. With Single card slot, no Built-in Image Stabilization and 1.74X crop in 4K video mode. The camera has failed to become the first choice for pros out there, however by introducing the EOS R camera canon has succeeded to stop the migration of Canon DSLRs users to other Mirrorless brands (specifically Sony) upto some extent.

Now let’s have a look at the Major parts of the interview

Future of EOS R system

“This is just the start of the system,”

“We want to surprise and astonish you, so please expect big things.”

Keeping the Compatibility with old Lenses (EF Lenses)

“it was difficult ensuring that compatibility. But we think that’s a big plus for the system.”

freedom they’ve gained in terms of optical design

“people who’ve been working on lenses for a really long time have, with this new system, been able to make lenses like the 28-70mm F2 comparably easily, compared to how they had so many challenges in the past.”

moving from eight communication channels to twelve

“During shooting there’s a massive amount of data going between the lens and the camera, so making sure that was smooth was another challenge,”

“During shooting there’s a massive amount of data going between the lens and the camera, so making sure that was smooth was another challenge,” says Kato. “By having that huge amount of data being transferred between the camera and lens, you can improve the general performance in relation to autofocus, metering and image stabilization. And you can also add features such as the control rings on the lenses.

We are waiting Canon, just bring it on.
