Sony "HDR-PJ 760V" reviewing the power of spatial optical image stabilization with 10 movies Review
Sony's Handycam equipped with the world's first "Spatial Optical Image Stabilizer"HDR-PJ760V(Direct sales tax included 138,000 yen, as of the time of article creationPrice .comThe lowest price of 103,300 yen) "is the company's"HDR-CX700V"It is said that it is an epoch-making model that can suppress camera shake by 13 times compared to the other, so this time it is a situation where borrowing of actual equipment and walking, bicycle, car etc. are concerned I actually decided to shoot a movie and check its ability.
The biggest feature of "HDR-PJ 760 V" is to have "Spatial Optical Image Stabilizer" unit which houses lenses and image pickup elements in the whole vibration absorbing mechanism.
When you touch the lens with your fingers with the power off, you can move it with rattling. In this state, when the camera shake correction function is activated, the lens moves automatically, realizing a powerful correction that can cope with a big shake.

◆ I actually shot a movie
In the following tests, as shown in the photograph, two cameras are fixed on one acrylic plate, shooting is performed with the same direction being applied with substantially the same vibration, and the hand shake of a general video camera I decided to compare the effectiveness of the correction and the "Spatial Optical Image Stabilizer" of "HDR - PJ 760 V". In addition, we used Canon's "IVIS HF M41(Around 60,000 yen including tax) ".
First of all, take a picture while zooming gradually towards the clock which is 20 meters ahead in the state of hand and check the effectiveness of the camera shake correction.
In the "HDR-PJ 760 V", you will not feel rocking almost even in the maximum telescopic state 10 times optical.

On the other hand, "iVIS HF M41" shows that the screen is quite scary at the maximum telephoto, and you can see that the big tremor can not be compensated completely.

Next, let's take a picture while walking and check the influence of walking vibrations.
"HDR - PJ 760 V" makes screen momentarily momentarily when vibration exceeding the range that can be absorbed by the correction unit occurs, but almost one - step shake can be almost absorbed.

In the case of "iVIS HF M41", the screen is shaking little by little in keeping with the pace and you can see that it has not fully absorbed the vibration.

A movie in the case of full speed running with a camera is as follows.
"HDR-PJ 760 V" can not absorb the vibration as expected, you can see quite a big shake. However, it is not a sharp sway of a gut, it is a mild vibrating feeling like a bongyeongboyon, so it is a level that can endure the ornament somehow.

The image shot with "iVIS HF M41" is a feeling that shaking of the landing and the like are directly transmitted, and it seems to get drunk just by seeing a quite sharp shake with the guts every step.

The movie that I took in hand from the car is below.
"HDR-PJ 760 V" is able to almost completely absorb the fine fluctuation coming from the unevenness of the road surface, and even if it is in the maximum telephoto state, the image is clear and the level which can clearly identify what is reflected.

The "iVIS HF M41" does not shake enough to feel uncomfortable on the wide angle side, but if it is set to telephoto, severe vibrations have occurred to the extent that the subject can not be captured.

The movie that I took with my bicycle on hand was like the following.
It is more stable because there are no more vibrations than the car, so you can shoot pictures that do not feel great shaking even when you turn the curve.

Since the original shake is not so bad, the vibration reduction function of "iVIS HF M41" is almost able to absorb the vibration, and it becomes a comparatively stable image.
