In addition to the gimbal stabilization mode, the Pixel 6 has a larger Samsung sensor. Improved NPU (Neural Processing Unit) and ISP (Image Signal Processor) for better video recording results. The Pixel smartphone does a great job of capturing photos. Still, thanks to Google’s computer photo assistant, it lags behind Apple and Samsung’s flagship video recording capabilities.
Google’s upcoming Pixel 6 and Pro variants have been talking about a leak camp lately. A few weeks after the updated version of Wild was posted online, some of the hardware specs of the primary camera were also revealed. One trusted leader recently tweeted that the image refresh works with more megapixels, an extensive zoom range, and impressive hardware innovations, like a stable camera mode.
But let’s talk about the central issue of the leak here. Stable gimbal mode. This is not entirely new technology, and this is not the first time it has been used on a smartphone. Last year, Chinese smartphone maker VIVO added heart stabilization technology to the X50 Pro and improved it even further by introducing the X60 series this year. So how does it work?
In theory, the gimbal camera system is a more sophisticated version of the traditional Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) system found in many smartphones these days. In this case, the gimbal is connected to the base using a suspension bridge bearing a magnetic frame and ball bearings driven by coils. This option allows you to move the X and Y axes three times. This is much higher than traditional MSRP can achieve.
The big picture: the more freedom you have in the axes, the more stable it is when shooting video. Together with improved EIS and OIS, this system suppresses hand movements more effectively and makes videos more stable. VIVO claims this new technology will essentially turn your phone into an action camera.
