    Im curious to whether there has been any improvement to the image stabilization when taking photos. It was always easy to get blurry photos on the iphone 4 and 4s, and was wondering if the has been improved on the 5. Anyone notice any difference?

    It actually has great stabilization, and because the iPhone 5 has a 20% drop in weight it is technically a pretty big deal since dropping the weight of a camera lowers stability.

    i dont know about taking photos, but when i shoot videos while walking and moving, the result is much smoother movement than in the 4S.

    It's worse than 4s. I notice a lot of blur unless its rock steady still shots

    I feel like photos have less jitter and video is a lot more stable.
