    It was my understanding that one of the main advantages of the image stabilization was that it would/should take the "bounce" out of the video that happens with each step as you walk and record at the same time, but I haven't found this to be the case.

    Do we have to enable this somehow?

    Walk around with the camera in photo mode. Then switch it to video mode. You'll see the difference.

    Well don't expect OPTICAL stabilization quality. There is a difference as the iphone uses digital stabilization. It's much better than iPhone 4 but it won't look like movie quality steadicam footage if that's what you're expecting.

    I just tried that and only noticed a marginal difference, if anything.

    Well, I read somewhere before the phone came out that the phone uses the gyroscope to stabilize it, but I guess that was incorrect?

    How exactly does digital stabilization work?

    Not that this is all terribly important or a big deal. Just mostly curious as the Apple "propaganda" film :)p) made it look like it would be a DRASTIC difference.
