IBIS is the acronym of In-Body Image Stabilization. Introduced by Nikon in the new Z-Series mirrorless cameras, it works by moving the sensor inside the camera to compensate for camera movement. The camera has built-in accelerometers that measure lateral motion, correcting the sensor by moving it left/right and up/down. It also has gyroscopes built-in to detect rotational movement which have five-axis image stabilization (horizontal, vertical, yaw, pitch, and roll), making Nikon Z cameras five-axis IBIS instruments.

A blessing for hand-held use of non-VR lenses, and quite an improvement for use of VR lenses.
