Oppo Announces Sensor Based Image Stabilization For Smartphones

Oppo, the emerging name in the Smartphone industry held its MWC 2016 press conference today.

Unexpectedly no new handset was revealed, but the Chinese company did not disappoint us at all and displayed some great new technologies.

Oppo unveiled Super VOOC charging technology along with its latest addition to the mobile photography called SmartSensor Image Stabilization.

Oppo has claimed that this novel technology is not only the sole, but the smallest stabilizer in the world.

The world’s first sensor-based image stabilization is already seen on many other sensor based mirrorless cameras.

However, the only major difference is that it has shrunken in size. The new technology is advanced and of potential use for many.

The new system is based on a voltage-driven sensor drive.

The other OIS system available nowadays is based on the lens which moves to produce vibrations.

The vibrations are performed with the help of spring mechanisms.

Oppo has declared that the new technology has lot of advantages over the other optical-based ones.

The new sensor based tech is a lot faster with movements taking only 15 milliseconds, as opposed to 50ms in mainstream OIS.

Similarly, the new technology is also precise and is able to correct vibrations as little as 0.3 μm, which is about a third of the size of a typical mobile sensor pixel.

Moreover, Oppo’s Smart sensor can make corrections to the pitch, yaw and roll axis while lens systems only work on two axes.

The smart sensor also offers reduced power consumption which is also beneficial.

Oppo’s new Smart Sensor looks a lot more promising than the other similar technologies available today.

No word on the usage of this technology in the other products has been out yet.
