Menu item details

Dynamic active:
Provides a more powerful SteadyShot effect than [Active].
Provides a more powerful SteadyShot effect.
Reduces camera shake under stable movie shooting conditions.
Does not use [SteadyShot].


  • When [Dynamic active] or [Active] is selected, with some lenses, the camera body and the lens work together to perform image stabilization, making it possible to correct larger blurs than usual. Refer to the following URL for compatible lenses.


  • When using a tripod, etc., make sure to turn off the SteadyShot function because this can cause any malfunction when shooting.
  • If you change the setting for [SteadyShot], the angle of view will change. When [SteadyShot] is set to [Active], the angle of view becomes narrower. [Dynamic active] performs cropping and pixel enlargement for a SteadyShot effect with less of an impact on the image quality. Therefore, the angle of view becomes even narrower than with [Active].
  • In the following situations, [Active] or [Dynamic active] cannot be selected:
    • For normal movies: when [Rec Frame Rate] is set to [120p]/[100p] or higher
      For slow-motion/quick-motion shooting: when [Frame Rate] is set to [120fps]/[100fps] or higher
  • When you set [SteadyShot] to [Dynamic active], Clear Image Zoom becomes unavailable.
