Question about 5-axis Stabilization possibility

Looks like it does what? Yes it compensates for camera movements along 5 axes, and it achieves that compensation by moving the sensor along 3 axes. Think about it for a minute and you'll see why it must be that way. Any tilting or fore-aft movement of the sensor would not compensate for anything, but totally destroy the image.

Yes, the sensor stays on its same flat plane as before, just as other 5-axis systems do. It wouldn't make sense to actually tilt the sensor off its plane unless the lens was also tilting out of its mount, which of course it never is on a normal lens. The 5 it is referring to are the movements it is detecting that need to be compensated for, not the movements it makes to do so. Previously it only detected rotational movements of the camera (which cause the biggest shifts) -- roll, pitch, and yaw. So by adding x & y (up/down & left/right) it will be better at stabilizing at macro distances where those really make a difference, and I guess slightly better overall. (Macro will still be affected by slight fore-aft movements.)
