New Gyroscope for SR in Future Models

Saw this announcement, that Pentax had made a deal for a new gyro setup to improve SR in future models.

Pentax Selects InvenSense Gyroscopes for Current and Future Camera Models Featuring Optical Image Stabilization

Obviously too new for any camera just about to come out, but we'd all like more/better SR, right? =)

If I read correctly they have it already integrated into the Optio A30.

Yeah, it would seem so from the PR, but I was referring more to SLRs in my "about to come out" - but then again, I only know what it says in there. =)

The press release only speaks about digital still cameras (DSC) and not DSLR's.
Since it only detects x and y axis, it is not enough for DSLR's because the SR solution for the DSLR's also compensates for tilting (like what often happens when the photographer presses down the shutter button).

Take care

But tilting can be detected with 2 such gyroscopes, right?
