p.2 #1 · p.2 #1 · Photoshop Camera Shake Reduction: The End of IS?


Wonderful news, I've already had my photographic life saved twice by Photoshop's Smart Sharpen Motion Blur correction tool, getting print sales on action shots that would otherwise have been binned. Having even better "cockup removal" tools in Photoshop, together with shooting RAW, will give us all a better safety net when things go wrong.

Of course I know there are FMers who NEVER make mistakes, but I, sadly, am not one of them!

Good job Adobe.

Yeah this. I've some shots that slight blur has pretty much ruined, it may recover those to a decent point. It wont replace technique or IS but its going to be a good tool to use along side.

You can't put back detail that was never there. Your image may look better, but it's not going to look as good as an image that never had any shake to begin with.


The detail is there in a blurred image, it's just "encoded" in a certain way. It is totally possible to recover some or all of this detail if you know the correct way to decode it. This is where the method can be hit and miss in practice, since the software has to estimate the deconvoluition kernel, it is never known. Even if you did know the exact kernel to use, image noise can still be a problem.

While I welcome forward thinking, optical solutions are preferable to software solutions.

Luck for me having been too lazy to delete all my slightly blurred photos from my image collection.

Yep, assuming we had perfect noiseless images, deconvolution could be very effective, but the more noise in the image, the worse it works. Not a problem if you intend to deblur an ISO100 shot, but most low-light images or other cases where you might get blur will almost certainly be at a higher ISO, because why would you want to risk blur with a low ISO, when you can just turn it up? Noise is easy to remove; blur is not.

Nothing beats getting it right in camera, but this could save those shots that you just can't retake... I'm sure that we all have some of those!

I thought this was old technology. Wasn't this used for years in american crime shows such as CSI?

Oh Lord it's hard to be humble when you are perfect in every way



It'll will require that the focus is accurate, but the image has only been affected by motion blur, it won't do miracles and fix oof shots

Looks like a good tool to have but I would not rely on it when making high quality images. Best get it right in camera. Nothing new there.

It is good to see photoshop tools evolving, although, generally speaking, post process "fakery" is only an imperfect substitute for a well taken photo.

For those of us who do much of our photography at high shutter speed, the primary benefit of lens IS is not in mitigation of camera/lens shake caused blur. The primary lens IS benefit, which, BTW, is generally still not well understood, is in allowing a capture, making it well framed, and enabling higher success rate AF.

I'm really digging this feature. Even though 99% of the time my camera is mounted on a tripod, I still see myself using this feature in situations where I hand hold the camera/lens, especially since my only IS lens in my bag is the 24-105mm.

It sounds like a nice feature but we'll see how well it works when it comes out (provided it's not vaporware). There's no point about getting excited about it before then, kinda doubtful IMO. I mean, we've had digital photography for >10 years and if it was that great, someone would have done something like this already.

I think it probably makes very nice demos when you take a 20 megapixel image and resize it for a tablet or the web. I'll be really impressed when they show me that you can make a nice sized print with it.

Not that it isn't useful if it just salvages a small jpg for online.

Of course, we could always consider using good technique in the field and getting sharp shots that way...but I guess I'm old fashioned.

As others have written, I don't believe this new tool will replace our sturdy tripods, adequate shutter speeds, or high-tech image stabilization. However, I'm curious to see how it could improve our handheld photos, especially when shooting with high pixel density sensors.

Sony already does in body stabilization so post should be possible.

In-body stabilization is completely different since that is done in realtime as the photo is being taken.

I say bring it on Adobe! It is another tool that one can use when in the perfect situation to help make or break it for any reason. Adobe by trying and thinking out of the box might cause a discovery in a different part of the digital dark room that could help make a leap into a future level of how we do things. It will be like a lot of tools in PS, there if you need it.

Will I use it, if I find that is the right tool, then yes. I have plenty of images that I could practice with .
