Image Stabilization

Is there any other IS lenses for a Nikon D series camera other than the sigma lense?

Also are there ANY IS lenses for any camera that could be capable of a 90 degreeangle of view?

One more question, what other techniques could be used to cancel out the movement of a camera moving say upto 10mm apart from gyros?

Thank you!

Nikon brand lenses that have image stabilization are designated with the VR in their model name. The VR stands for vibration reduction. As for a 90 degree angle of view look at a super wide angle and or fisheye lenses some of which go past 90 degrees. Your angle of view will vary depending if you are shooting 35mm film vs. a dslr with less than a full frame sensor.

Not sure how to answer your last question. I'll leave that one to someone more technically minded than me.

Thanks Dan,

Maybe a silly question but.....

When the angle for a lens is quoted at x for 35mm format and y for nikon dx format, if i'm using a nikon d series camera does that mean i will beuse the dx format or can i still get a 35mm format and get a wider angle with the camera?

Yes you're right. With digital the sensor is smaller than the film plane in a 35mm so you effectively lose some of your angle of view. It is also commonly referred to as the "cropping factor". You in gain in effective focal length but you also lose in angle of view due to this. Most dslr's have a factor around 1.5 so a 200mm lens on a 35mm will effectively operate like a 300mm lens on a dslr. On the wide end a 12mm becomes a 18mm thus decreasing your angle of view.
