If you’re anything like us, in the past, you regularly had your aspirations to be a mobile filmmaker crushed by shaky hands, bouncy rides and fast-moving targets. Then Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) technology arrived on the Nokia Lumia 920 and that all changed.
Wave goodbye to the shakes
Conventional OIS means your camera detects jerks and jolts, then cancels them out by moving one of its lens elements. OIS in your Nokia Lumia 920, 925 and 1020, however, compensates for movement a lot more efficiently: by shifting the all of its optical components. The result? OIS in a Nokia Lumia cancels out about 50% more movements per second, reacts around 300 times faster than the average human – and leaves its competitors literally shaking. To prove our point, check out these five comparison videos, which pit Nokia Lumia’s against and iPhone 5s, a HTC One, a Sony Xperia Z and a Samsung Galaxy SIII.

So, there we have it. Pretty compelling evidence that Nokia Lumias with OIS don’t shake – they just rock! Here at Nokia Conversations, we’ve already been enjoying the silky smooth benefits of OIS for everything from filming sports to kids playing. But what about you?
