Canon keeps improving their IS mechanism

Cannon released a new Image Stabilization mechanism today. Here's a quote from the press release.
"Canon Inc. announced today the development of Hybrid Image Stabilizer (IS), the world’s first* optical Image Stabilizer which compensates for both angular camera shake and shift camera shake. The technology will be incorporated in an interchangeable single lens reflex (SLR) camera lens planned for commercial release before the end of 2009."
So can anyone tell me the difference between angular and shift camera shake? I guess I'll just be happy to know that this new mechanism does image stabilization "better".

This week we make final edits to our promo image using Photoshop CS3 before taking our finished image back into Lightroom to produce various useful crops all from the same source image. Also this week we talk about Reflections in our composition segment. Music for the assignment entries is provided by Jimmie Bratcher with "Restless for the Sun".

Tutorial 13, Chapter 4 - PhotoWalkthrough Promo Shot

This week we spend some time with the Lightroom Developer Module preparing our images for the final stage in Photoshop CS3. We play with the exposure sliders, white balance, spot editing and healing and then cropping. We also look at composition using foreground, middleground and background. And we review the entries to last week's shallow depth of field challenge while we listen to Howard Jones' latest podsafe hit, Revolution of the Heart.
