With the OM-D E-M5, Olympus introduced to the world a 5-axis sensor-shifting image stabilization system – the first of its kind in any consumer camera.

To see the technology in action, Micro 4/3rds Photography made the below video, which takes a look at how the sensor carefully adjusts itself as the camera rolls, tilts and turns.

To capture the video, Micro 4/3rds Photography used a Samyang 7.5mm f/3.5 fisheye lens attached to a Panasonic Lumix GH4. That setup was then attached to the OM-D E-M5 II and used to record the action.
