Chinese company Vivo introduced the camera module with improved mechanical stabilization by which the lens may vary up to three degrees. The first smartphone with such a camera will be Vivo X50 Pro, which she plans to submit in early July, reports Engadget.
In many smartphones released in recent years, particularly the flagship, the two types of stabilization: digital (also called electronic) and optical. With digital stabilization, the camera basically generates a picture of data from the Central part of the matrix, and the side region uses to compensate for shaky hands or other movements. In addition, after receiving the frames, the software can stretch them or perform other manipulations to make the video smoother.
Optical stabilization compensates for movement of the device, shifting of the camera: the lens or, more rarely, very matrix. This allows not only to stabilize the video, but to get enough sharp shots even at relatively long exposure with it, such as at dusk. As in smartphones, the size of the entire camera module is much less than the size of a professional camera with lens, they usually used a simplified design of the stabilizer, which allows you to move the lens in the lens plane along two axes.
