Apple developed a better system of optical image stabilization for the iPhone camera




iPhone and iPad next generation can get a camera with an advanced optical image stabilization system. This was reported on Thursday edition Phonearena.


The patent for the new technology issued US Patent Office and Trademark Office. The document says that the focus and image stabilization in photomodule smartphone or tablet will work on the basis of technology mirror-to-mirror. It is noted that it is superior in features technology OIS, which is used in many modern cameras and smartphones.


Camera shake causes movement of the lens, varying the angle of flow of the incoming light relative to the optical axis, and consequently the projected image “floats” on the surface of the matrix, resulting in blurred pictures. Lenses corrected displacement flow of light by moving the movable biconcave lens optical stabilizer in the opposite direction to the direction of movement of the lens. This stabilizes the position of the projected image on the matrix during shooting and reduces the degree of “spreading” of the picture.


Apple patented technology mirror-to-mirror works on the principle of the periscope in the tank. Chamber design provides for separate movement of the lens and the camera’s sensor, which provides a higher quality unit. Image stabilization in photomodule smartphone or tablet is controlled by a magnetic force, which is responsible for moving the lens.

The application was registered in August 2013, which means that the company is working on this technology for over a year and can present its practical implementation in the iPhone and iPad next generation. At the moment, only one smart phone Apple iPhone 6 Plus is equipped with a camera with optical image stabilization.
