I just did some testing of the C6's anti-shake mode. I upgraded my firmware yesterday.

Maybe I am imagining this, but even when with the anti-shake switched off, a quick pan results in an acceleration vector on the display not unlike a reduced level of anti-shake.

Move the camera quickly, and the watch the video image's fast 'drift' across the viewfinder, decelerating as the image comes to a halt, just after the camera stops moving.

Am I imagining this? Is this something which was changed in the upgrade, or does the old software do this too?

I often used to use the 'image stabilizer', but it was unstable on a tripod - tending to start jumping on a scene in which there was no movement at all for an extended period. I now need to test the upgraded C6 on my tripod, on a still scene... maybe tomorrow...

I am not complaining, this looks just about optimum 'damping' to me...

I had noticed this behavior with the old firmware as well. Didn't/doesn't affect what is recorded.
