    Hi

    Is there anyway to reduce the shakes and wobbly video on the iphone 4 I try to remain solid to record but they results are still they same! my videos come out like i've gave my phone to a man that was on 50 cigs a day with trembles! SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE!

    Its worse on a large tv or monitor I get motion sick!

    Any apps for that?

    Next time I make a vid I'm gonna try to clean it up with the smoothing option in iMovie.

    You're holding it wrong.

    Seriously try putting your elbows tucked to your sides and hold the phone closer to your chest. Sure it looks and feels silly but there you go! I haven't had a problem with my videos. Sure they aren't perfect but the shakes are kept to a minimum using this method.

    Stability is the key.

    On the plus side, you probably paid at least 50% less for your computer and it has the same/better computing power. :D

    On a serious note...I'm sure there are plenty of other PC compatible software options that provide stabilization. Try googling it because I don't know any of the top of my head.

    Since when do smokers get the shakes? I think you're talking about drunks.

    Just keep your arms tucked at your sides as has been mentioned. Seems to work for me.

    Wow and chalk up another issue with the ip4. It makes you take shaky video. Apple owes you an extra free bumper for this madness!!

    Any recorder that lacks image stabilization (basically every phone camera) has this. Unfortunately the clearer and higher the resolution is of the recording, the more apparent even the very small vibrations are.

    I know. I was making a joke. It just wasn't a funny one.

    Don't worry, I got a chuckle out of this one.

    I hear the second batch (the ones with the fixed signal issues) will also include an image stabilizer. I'm holding out for one of those. They when I get one, I'm going to return that for a white one. ;)

    Here ya go OP. Took a quick shot, sorry for the lower light so the video has noise in it but you can try to see the difference.

    First thing that jumped out at me is that it zooms in on the stabilized video so that it has room to move around to negate the vibration. It, of course, does have it's limitations on how much vibration it can remove.
