How to use image stabilization on the EOS R5.


Image Stabilizer (IS Mode)

Image stabilization by the camera reduces camera shake in still photo shooting. It can provide effective stabilization even when your lens is not equipped with Image Stabilizer. When using a lens equipped with Image Stabilizer, set the lens’s Image Stabilizer switch to ON.

  1. Select [Shooting: IS (Image Stabilizer) mode].

  2. Select [IS mode].

    • Select [On].
  3. Select [Still photo IS].

    • [Always]: Provides constant image stabilization.
    • [Only for shot]: Image stabilization is active only at the moment of shooting.


  • [Shooting: IS (Image Stabilizer) mode] is not displayed in [Flexible-priority AE], [Program AE], [Shutter-priority AE], [Aperture-priority AE], [Manual exposure], or [Bulb] shooting mode when an IS-equipped lens is attached.
  • In some cases, this may not provide sufficient stabilization for certain lenses.


  • For details on image stabilization for movie recording, see Movie Digital IS.

Focal Length

Image stabilization based on your specified lens focal length is possible by setting the focal length when using lenses that do not support lens communication.

  1. Select [Focal length].

  2. Set the focal length.

    • Turn the Quick control dial 1 dial to select the digit of the focal length.
    • Press SET to display [Adjust].
    • Set the desired number, then press SET. (Returns to [Select].)
  3. Select [OK].


  • Set [Custom Functions: Release shutter w/o lens] to [Enable]. [Disable] prevents image stabilization.
  • [Focal length] is not displayed when lenses are attached that support lens communication.


  • Focal length can be set in a range of 1–1000 mm (in 1 mm increments).
