Too bad people kept trying to use it forcing Panasonic to unnecessarily fix something meant for photos and still shots. All joking aside, these in body stabilization systems are still no match for a gimbal. People are trying to push the IBIS far out of what it was meant for. I think the most common test that I see online when a new camera with IBIS comes out is people start walking with their cameras. I bet Panasonic engineers would say "Whoa, hold on there cowboy. What in the world gave you the impression that you can walk with the camera? It's made for careful pans and still shots." First of all, even though I watched the video on my iPod, it was quite thorough and informative. The reviewer also demonstrates that if you have some interesting movement or subject that holds your interest, the camera shake is not always so obvious. In the real world, I would never just run up and down the street to see how steady the horizon is. ? And I agree with Michael, I don't see IBIS or electronic stabilization replacing gimbals any time soon, but they can help get even smoother looking shots when used in combination with a handheld stabilizer.
