Hello folks,

I am wondering if there are any difference between a lens IS compared to CCD sensor IS in terms of performance and end result?

Panasonic uses lens correction while Nikon and Ricoh uses CCD. I am currently deciding between Pana FX01 and Ricoh R4.Should the different IS system be a consideration here or should i not be bother about it at all?

Thanks for your time.............

That's a good question.

In terms of down-the-road pricing, it certainly helps to have IS built into the camera so you're not constantly buying lenses with IS - which adds a considerable amount to the cost of the lense.

But as far as quality, I don't know...I'd be curious to see some side-by-side shots.

Since you are talking about small fixed lens cameras, later lens upgrades aren't a factor like it would be for a DSLR.

Both systems seem to be about equally capable. Optical stabilization is new to Ricoh and I haven't seen any good tests. But in other cameras both systems seem about equal.
