According to the Oly site, it's digital stabilization, which AFAIK is weasle 
words for bumping the ISO up to shoot faster.  No true 'stabilization' taking 
place.  I may be wrong.  
I was in a Circuit City this evening, and the P&S models I tried with true 
(mechanical) IS are the only way to go.

Subject: [OM] Stylus1030 or Nikon S52c?

I'm looking into getting a pocket camera where the lens does  not protrude when 
the camera is turned on.  Two on my list are the Stylus 1030 and the 
(Blasphemy!) Nikon S52 or S52c. 

The Stylus's big draw is its water and shock resistance.  The Nikon's big draw 
is ability to transmit pictures to a PC with wifi (S52c). 

Strangely enough, my current thinking is that image stabilization might 
outweigh the other features, as I see using the camera in low light situations 
more often than in water or dropping it.

The s52/s52c has VR stabilization.  Does the Stylus 1030 have true IS, or does 
it merely claim that high ISOs allow for stabilization like some earlier 
Olympus P&S cameras did?
