Apparently, Fuji thinks optical stabilization is not the way to go...they are now introducing their solution: Anti-Blur Mode.

Antiblur is a great-great joke.

Nothing more than marketing. :sad:

Sorry, I fail to see the humor...perhaps you can enlighten us as to Fuji's latest marketing ploy.

Anti blur mode should be either a different name for IS, or its just a mode with iso1600 and the largest aperature possible to get the best shutterspeed imo. I cant think of anything else that would cause blur reduction.

Forgive me a novice to the topic "image stabilization".

But I do know currently, there are 3 means to achieve it:

1. Optical
2. Mechanical
3. Electronic

So which IS tech does the Fuji "AntiBlur" belong to, if not optical?

None of the above...they don't use IS. According to Fuji, their Anti-Blur is a program which automatically increases shutter speed to prevent blurring from camera shake or subject movement. IS can't do anything to prevent subject movement.

I have no idea how it is supposed to work, but it sounds interesting.

"...Anti-Blur is a program which automatically increases shutter speed to prevent blurring..."

Then it's exactly the same tactics as used in Casio S500 AntiShake.

Anybody how's the S500 Antishake performance?

The new Panasonic Lumix series seems to fit the bill. Go to breaking news from the main menu and check it out. The new 16:9 ratio one is appealing as a compact since the lens is wide angle, equivalent to 28mm at the short end. Very useful indoors or in any confined situation

Fuji's AntiBlur = Auto ISO

The system check the (equivalent) focal length and then set ISO value and aperture which make shutter speed to (min.) 1/focal length.
