The investor note states that Apple may transfer to sensor-shift primarily based picture stabilization, using a 5-axis system for a similar. Sensor-shift primarily based stabilization is superior to optical-based programs in a number of methods, crucial being their skill to compensate for vibrations in 5 axes, whereas OIS can solely deal with two. This makes sensor-shift primarily based stabilization higher suited particularly for video, and provided that the iPhone has a long-standing popularity for being a superb video digital camera, this is able to make excellent sense. Sensor-based stabilization additionally implies that it might give Apple room to additional shrink the ingredient stack, however it seems that they might as a substitute make the most of the house.
