Balanced Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization system
The innovative Balanced Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization system eliminates the influence of vibrations from the body by enclosing the entire optical block, from the lens to the image sensor, in a “floating” space. Combined with electronic image stabilization that compensates for rotation around the optical axis, this new system provides powerful image stabilization even when shooting whilst zooming, which was previously difficult to achieve. So now you can record stable images with minimal blur, every time.To optimize the effect of Balanced Optical SteadyShot™, the HXR-NX30P features a FIXED SHOT mode. Press a button and this expands the movable range of the optical block to keep you locked on your subject. This is particularly convenient when you want to maintain the same shooting angle for an extended period.
