          I'd heard of the idea but not seen it in action. I wonder if it really works - and why he needs one with a camera that has IS lenses

              Interesting how this IS system also improves the white balance.

                It's a pretty old trick.

                Here's another version, where it called a 'virtual tripod':

                Philo's got a very interesting site in general.

                    I used to have a 'Focal Press' book published in the 1950's (?) which had a similar idea called a Chainpod - using bathplug chain!

                    An old idea but a good one.

                    Surely you could use this with a spirit level for panoramas? Combining the two ideas...

                      That's what 'Philo' does!
