Built-in 5-Axis Stabilisation

sony fx3 x ray view of camera in body stabilisation

In-camera image stabilisation Active Mode678 is an optical in-body 5-axis image stabilisation system that provides increased stabilisation for movie shooting. To preserve image quality, the gyroscope sensor accurately measures camera shake and compensates optically. This makes stable video possible even when shooting hand-held without gimbal use, while walking, and at 4K resolution.
