The Digitimes publication from Taiwan today brings us news about version 13 of the iPhone family. In this case we are talking about the stabilization of the photographs we take, one which would adopt, across the range, an OIS system.
OIS for all, the paradigm shift in stabilization
According to information available to Digitimes, “the next generation of Apple iPhones, slated for launch in the second half of 2021, will feature Sensor Stabilization Technology (OIS), according to industry sources.” A significant change from the previous generation where only the iPhone 12 Pro Max, for size reasons, has this feature
Being able to stabilize the image capture by moving the sensor instead of the lens system is a very important step forward in several ways. First of all, it reduces the size of the components and their complexity, the sensor is much easier to move than the lenses
So far, Sensor Stabilization (OIS) has only been available in DSLR cameras, which seems to be changing a lot with the arrival of all iPhone 13 models that we’ll see in a few months. . Along with this news, it should be remembered that DigiTimes reported that, in the same way, the LiDAR sensor will also reach the full range, so we can expect a major breakthrough in the field of photography
The truth is that everything seems to indicate that we are going to see significant changes in the iPhone 13. Among the improvements to the cameras, the arrival of LiDAR to more devices and the future A15 Bionic, which the Mac with M1 gives us an idea, it looks like we’ll be facing a most interesting generation.
