Canon patent application on sensor stablization
This patent shows clearly that canon is finally looking at stablizing the sensor.
Part 402 in the diagram is to move the actual sensor as described in the corresponding notations;
401 calculates a target value of an amount of rotation drive of the imaging device on the basic of a roll correction angle. On the basis of the target value of the calcuated amount of shift drive and the target value of rotation drive, the driving mechanism unit 402 moves the imaging device, so that shake correction and tilt correction is performed.
This shows a powershot styled camera, but this is the first notation we've seen of any sensor shift capability in a canon camera.
