"Microsoft Research has presented a research paper at the 2010 SIGGRAPH conference that shows a new hardware+software approach to reduce image blur due to camera motion. Their approach takes advantage of inertial measurement sensors attached to a DSLR, measuring the camera's acceleration and angular velocity."
Microsoft has come up with a combined hardware and software solution to eliminate blurred images from camera shake. It takes movement input from the sensors, then takes the data and corrects the original image. It's pretty good, if you read the MS paper and results, but it's also not quite 100%. Don't just throw out your IS/VR/whatever lenses and bodies yet!
