Canon Patent - DSLRs with In-Body Image Stabilization

After a little research we have found that Canon is also working to implement image stabilization in its DSLRs. Earlier Canon had a policy against IBIS on DSLR but from a recent patent it’s look like their policy now changed. And now they are working to implement image stabilization system to DSLRs

For more details you can read these translated text coming straight out from Japanese patent.

Translated text from patent

An exchangeable lens device that is attachable to and detachable from an image capturing apparatus includes two types of lens devices, i.e., a lens device including an image stabilizing mechanism that corrects camera shake generated due to a user’s hand shake and a lens device not including the image stabilizing mechanism. The image stabilizing mechanism corrects the camera shake by moving an optical system. The lens device including the image stabilizing mechanism can correct camera shift-shake in a direction orthogonal to an optical axis (hereinafter, simply referred to as camera shift-shake), but cannot correct camera roll-shake in a direction of rotation about an axis in parallel with the optical axis (hereinafter, simply referred to as camera roll-shake).

To correct the camera roll-shake, an image sensor of the image capturing apparatus needs to be rotated. In this context, Japanese Patent Application Laid-Open No. 2011-095467 discusses an image shake correction device having a rotational substrate, fixedly holding the image sensor, supported by a fixing portion via a rotation shaft. The image shake correction device discussed in Japanese Patent Application Laid-Open No. 2011-095467 requires a supporting mechanism for the rotation shaft for rotating the image sensor. The image shake correction device discussed in Japanese Patent Application Laid-Open No. 2011-095467 only focuses on correcting the camera roll-shake, and thus if the attached lens device does not include a shift-shake correcting mechanism, the camera shift-shake cannot be corrected with such a configuration

Canon to improve heat insulation of following lenses mentioned in the patent document

  • Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS USM II
  • Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM Lens
  • Canon EF 500mm f/4L IS II USM Lens
  • Canon EF 800mm f/5.6L IS USM

Patent Details (Translated from Japanese)
A possible to obtain a lens device change in optical performance is reduced relative to a temperature change in the ambient. In the lens apparatus having an optical system including an A positive lens Gp, the material of the positive lens Gp is ​​set properly, the exterior member 7 of coupling mechanism which protects the holding member 6 and the holding member 6 for holding the positive lens Gp the set properly. .Field

The present invention relates to a lens holding mechanism in the lens unit and an imaging apparatus having the same.

Lens apparatus such as an interchangeable lens for use in a digital still camera is used in various environments. For example, when the lens device is used in high temperature environment, the temperature of the lens included in the lens unit is increased, the optical properties of the lens may change.

References 1, by disposing the heat insulating member between the light source and the lens unit, discloses an optical apparatus employing the heat that is not easily transmitted configuration from the light source to the lens barrel.
