Canon Patent Application: Tilting the sensor automatically (NOT IBIS)

We skipped over this one during our dissemination of the patent applications on Thursday, but since it's being reported in other places, we felt we should comment on it.

This patent application describes cases where when zooming a lens, the image plane "tilts" and shifts.  This patent is so that when you are zooming the lens, the sensor will automatically tilt in two axis, depending on instructions from the lens itself.

This patent is not IBIS.  IBIS is "in body image stabilization", this patent has nothing to do with stabilization for shake correction.

We have yet to see a detailed patent from Canon describing mechanically an IBIS sensor assembly.
