Anti shake is like a counter balance it works in opposite motion of the object in question to counter out the involuntary motion.

but here's a link it might explain it better

oops re-read your post ferny well here's a snippet taken from that link ^ I just posted


Anti-Shake offers unrivaled stability up to 3 shutter speeds slower than digital cameras without a stabilization system. What makes it so effective is its unique CCD-shift mechanism. The CCD sensor rests on a movable mount, which shifts according to the amount of camera shake detected by the camera's motion detectors. Shifting occurs along the x, y-axes to cancel out the effects of camera shake.

Here's an animation of the IS technology on the Canon Pro90IS/Olympus C-2100UZ:

Minolta uses a different system from Canon and Panasonic. Minolta stabilizes the CCD where Canon, Panasonic and the old Oly stabilize an element in the lens system. They both work about the same. I think the 3 f stops might be a little optimistic, but it is at least 2.

The nice thing about the Minolta system is that they are going to be able to integrate it into their new DSLR so that all lenses will be stabilized. I don't think it makes any difference which system is used for a camera without interchangeable lenses.
