The Olympus OMD EM5 Mk II has some incredible image stabilization with its five way axis control. It sure helps with the image quality and shooting in extremely low light; which adds to our rating in our review. But while this is all good to know, what’s really interesting is how the image stabilization works when you actually look at it. The folks over at 43Rumors found a video of what it looks like in action. As you can see in the video after the jump, the imaging sensor moves back and forth over and over again to compensate for the movement of the camera.

This shows you how the camera tries to keep the image stabilized by using motors and movement to keep the sensor in relatively the right place.
