Image stabilization in Olympus camera bodies
An Olympus micro four thirds camera for less than $200 is an incredible bargain considering that image stabilization is built into the camera. Because of the short 19.25mm Flange Focal Distance (FFD), just about any lens can be adapted to these cameras.

Olympus MFT cameras are lightweight and inconspicous, unlike many of the DSLRs that don’t have built-in image stabilization.
Alternatives to image stabilization
Use a high ISO setting and a high shutter speed. Many newer digital cameras don’t have a problem with noise at higher ISO settings.
Use an electronic flash to freeze motion. The technique has worked great with studio strobes for decades. Don’t think that your options are limited to a $500 dedicated flash unit. Experiment with a high powered studio strobe and a wireless remote flash trigger or your camera’s PC terminal.
