The image stabilization is electronic and it doesn't work well at all. Actually, it degrades image quality some most people turn it off. The only thing you can do without buying some kind of stabilizer is to lean or rest it on something while filming zoomed in. Like, if there a fence or rail you can rest it on.

thanks for the tips. the more i use the camera the better i get!



i noticed that when i really keep my elbows locked to my sides, and hold the lcd screen with my left hand, it does wonders.



im still wondering how well the image stabilizer stacked up against other camera on the market in the same price range? for example, the canon hf100? that was my 2nd choice, but for the 200 dollar difference and large size, i opted for the sanyo. so far, no regrets!

i purchased my hd1000 off ebay with a 16gb card for only 527. it is all new and original. it also came with a tripod, screen protector, and a few other items That i cannot recall. The canon was my second choice as well but i opted for this.
