Watch Just How Good Is The New Xiaomi Mi5's OIS

By 03:36 Sat, 31 Jul 2021 Comments

A few hours ago Xiaomi rocked the mobile world by announcing the latest Mi 5 flagship. During the lengthy presentation, impressive facts about the handset were flying towards us at supersonic speed - the recent 16 Light Emitting Diode (LED) backlight display, UFS 2.0 storage, full-featured NFC, the list goes on and on.

But the capturing camera was one area that company VP Hugo Barra seemed particularly excited about, even leaking sample photos prior to the announcement itself. The Xiaomi Mi5 has a 16MP main shooter with an aperture of f/2.0 and the Sony IMX 298 sensor. But the real rabbit in the hat is definitely the recent 4-axis optical image stabilization.

The technology looks truly impressive. In fact, to showcase just how well it works, Hugo Barra showed a demo clip on stage, which has leaked online and can be seen below.

In it, we can clearly see the Xiaomi Mi 5 obliterate the image stabilization of the latest iPhone 6s Plus. Mind you, the latter is a clever system of both OIS and digital stabilization, although the software part is assumed to be a post-processing thing, so the demo might actually be taking it out of the equation. Still, the results are impressive, to say the least.
