Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS-Worlds first camera lens featuring Canon’s new Hybrid IS technology
The new Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS lens is the world’s first camera lens featuring Canon’s new Hybrid Image Stabilization (Hybrid IS) technology, compensating for both angle camera shake and shift camera shake, up to four shutter speed steps. The Hybrid IS includes an acceleration sensor in addition to the conventional angular velocity sensor (vibration gyro). Based on the amount of camera shake detected by the two sensors, a newly developed algorithm calculates the amount of blur on the image plane, after which lens elements in the IS are positioned to compensate for the two types of shake – a first in an interchangeable lens for SLR cameras and an excellent way to solve the problem of camera shake in macro photography.
The Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM lens could very well be the essential multipurpose lens for every camera bag due to its ability to capture sharp close-up images of small objects as well as beautiful portrait-length telephoto shots.The Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM lens is compatible with all EOS cameras.
