Finally a review !!

Got my Video Systems mag today, and low and behold I see a review of the PDX-10...

Here is a link with the online review..


I thought it was a decent review.. One thing i did not realize, according to the reviewer, the camera does not have optical image stabilization? is that correct??

Interesting, I assumed it was optical stabilization, but to be honest I leave it off since I use a tripod 90% of the time. Looking at the manual I note they call it "steadyshot" and on the VX-2000 I think they refer to "super steadyshot", so perhaps Steve is right. The specs at the back of the manual don't cover this. There is a PDF brochure on Sony's website which has some other specs and info, but for some reason it won't open now....

No way...it has OIS...

The text below is copied from the Sony (http://www.sonybiz.net) website. According to this information the PDX10P have OIS.

"Optical Super SteadyShot Function
The DSR-PDX10P employs the Super SteadyShot system in which the horizontal and vertical movements during camera work are detected independently by the sensors. The active lens adjusts and optically compensates for unsteadiness, while maintaining image quality"

Super Steady Shot has been Sony's brand for OIS for years. Basically they're licensing Canon's OIS technology. This particular review that you're referring to was written by our own Steve Mullen, who moderates our JVC Mini-HD forum here. I'm sure he would be happy to answer any other questions you might have.

It certainly is an optical steadyshot but only in so far as the light is being bent internally by extra elements. The electronics behind the scenes and the rate gyros sending their information to be processed is of course electronic, so in fact all OIS systems are hybrid EIS/OIS, whereas EIS systems are purely EIS.
