    I have an iPhone X mounted in my vehicle. The mount is a Pro-Clip but I have had the same problem happened with multiple styles of vehicle mounted phone holders. I have also had it happen with other iPhones that i have owned. Basically, when I try to record a video with the back facing camera in the vehicle is running/driving down the road the video has a wavy effact that happens to it. If I switch to the front facing camera I do not have that problem. The only thing I can think of is the slight vibrations of the vehicle cause the optical image stabilization to go wacky. I have tried looking for others with this problem but have not been able to find anyone else… It may be that my Google-fu is weak. Has anyone else seen this problem or have any suggestions on how to fix it? I have had it happen with hard mounts to the dash, ram mounts, and windshield suction cup mounts.

    That happens when the movement is more than what the OIS can compensate.

    Yep, no way the OIS can cope. It was ment for controlling hand movement.
