Does VR work in both Landscape and Portrait orientation?

  1. Guys,

    Sorry, I checked the back postings and couldn't find the answer to this...

    Does VR work in both Landscape and Portrait orientation of the camera? For some
    reason I thought it only functions in Landscape.

    Thanks - sorry if a repeat Q.

  2. Assuming that its the same as Canon's IS system, it compensates for movement on both the X and Y axis, meaning yes, it will work in portrait orientation.
  3. Michael, it even works if you hold the camera upside down or on an angle.
  4. It works just fine.

    I believe the only exception is when panning. I recall reading that the panning detector only works with the camera horizontal. If you pan with the camera vertical, the VR motion may get jerky.
