    on every phone I've had with ois when in photos as in camera app open you can phiscally see the camera module moving now on my iPhone 7 if I put it on video I can see the module moving if I turn it around but in photo mode it doesn't move this is odd to me as I would thought it would be moving too can you look at yours and tell me thanks

    I can confirm my iPhone 7 camera lens moves around creepily like crazy when in video mode and it doesn't move the same in photo mode. It does get closer and farther away from the glass when it's focusing but no creepy movement while in photos. Maybe it does it still but it's less so or it happens right when you take a photo? Where as during a video it needs to be moving constantly to compensate for the motion?

    Can you draw a picture of problem? I think with picture we can more better understand problem and help try fix. Without picture then very hard to understand what you say about physically module moving.

    thank you very much for your reply this is excatly what i was asking thank you for confirming it to me.

    if anyone would please try on there phones to compare.
    go into camera and select video(but dont record) then look at the back of your phone at the camera itself and give the phone some movement aka shake it you will see the actual camera lens move around which is the ois.
    now select photo (dont take a photo) just leave it open in photos now turn the phone around again look at the camera lens itself and shake the phone again does the ois work like in video? thank you very much

    can we find more esoteric problems to worry about?
    All of these threads about people returning their phones 5+ times about tiny problems 99% of the population can't see are getting ridiculous.
    Get real people, nothing is perfect even if you spent 1 million dollars for it.

    if the OIS is like how OIS is on some standalone cameras, the OIS only kicks in when you take a photo, to adjust for your hand shake at that moment.

    This!

    In picture mode the OIS only works the second you take an image.

    I don't believe there is any stabilization for photo mode. Only video. And the lenses in video will adjust like a gimbal will when not filming.

    If your videos are stable and no warping or blur then you don't have a problem

    If the videos are poor exchange the phone.
