This paper proposes an image stabilization method for arbitrary disturbances, such as rotation, translation and zoom movement, using the SIFT (Scale Invariant Feature Transform). In addition, image stabilization was carried out using the image division and merge technique when moving objects appear on the scene. Finally, the experimental results showed that the suggested image stabilization scheme produced superior performance compared to the previous ones.
