iPhone’s dual-lens camera may get big stabilization upgrade in 2017

“The dual-lens camera on the iPhone 7 Plus is set to get a big stabilization upgrade next year,” Buster Hein reports for Cult of Mac. “While Apple only added optical image stabilization to the wide-angle lens on the camera this year, a new report claims that Apple plans to bring the feature to the telephoto lens in 2017.”

Hein reports, “The new iPhone rumor comes from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who is regarded as one of the most accurate Apple soothsayers.”

We expect the telephoto lens will be redesigned to support OIS in the telephoto CCM, with challenges likely coming from: (1) the need to increase the image circle of the telephoto lens, which will lead to longer calibration time and a more complex assembly processes; and (2) a redesign of the telephoto lens, as an increased image circle will result in degraded photo quality around the corners. — Ming-Chi Kuo, KGI Securities

MacDailyNews Take: Yes, having OIS for both lenses will be a significant improvement.

    1. If you hadn’t gotten your panties in a bunch over a frank criticism of the spelling bee champs at MDN, everything would have been just peachy. But nooooooooo, when you have your periods, everyone HAS to suffer.

      1. It was a juvenile & pointless post. Not the least bit amusing except to the laughing 10 year old fool. Which is probably you as one and the same as all the others on this thread. Everyone suffering = YOU. Everyone else is laughing their ass off at your simple-minded moronity.

        1. Actually, I have a feeling everyone of the replies may have been from a different poster but nevertheless, it’s just fun to see you get all worked up about nothing. This thread is getting really amusing. I concur with the previous person that you may be suffering from your period. Check your panties if you’re still not convinced and take a chill pill next time.

          1. First off using my pseudonym is something only a troll moron would do. Second your language speaks volumes for a mindless troll. Third I am not worked up in the least, in fact it was a pleasure knocking your idiotic “it takes very little to amuse the feeble minded” initial comment.

            Your numerous responses indicate the worked up, nervous and insecure unpopular party – you. Misery loves company, but it’s the only company you have.

            1. Peter, this is your father speaking. I command you to come join your mother and I under the bridge. Humanity cannot bear to see congenital cretins like us any longer.

            2. Unknown names like Cinerama, Ur von dum azz, iLoveHammeringUrMom, Take_A_Midol, Uhmm_No, iAmYourFather and then copying my name – oh yeah, you’re a real classy troll with a consistency for low class pre-pubescent posts befitting of a winning Village Idiot Convention Internet stupidest-troll contest. Congratulations.

            3. Only so many times I will respond to your brain dead troll-inanities. I’ll let the voting crowd take care of the rest. So feel free to continue to make yourself look even more stupid than you already do. Mission Accomplished I have to say on your part. Ignoring fools is ultimately the best policy so consider yourself summarily ignored.

            4. Glad to hear you’re coming to join us Peter. Your mother and I are having roadkill armadillo for Thanksgiving so don’t forget to bring the kill with you.

          1. Uhm yes I appreciate the self incriminating moronity as you make my case for me writing childishly with pseudonyms never seen here before. You get the uber-obvious troll of 2016 award. But I get that you are an obviously mentally handicapped sociopath without a decent bone in your body. Just getting a boner for creating trouble and proudly showing off your age/shoe size.

            Same exact behavior = same troll.

            1. Cinerama, Ur von dum azz, iLoveHammeringUrMom, Take_A_Midol, Uhmm_No, iAmYourFather You’re just a douche bag of a troll who doesn’t deserve to live on this planet.

            2. Since those are all you (including the fake me “sure sign of a troll” sign in name) that’s a very fair assessment and magnanimous of you to admit. So please leave posthaste! Pluto would be acceptable as your new domicile.
