    Learn how to be completely still when taking a photo. Take a deep breath and hold it in while snapping a shot. Keep your elbows tucked into your body. If possible lean against something so you are very still. Create a tripod with your legs and body, or at least spread your legs to become more balanced.

    With reading further about Focus Pixels I actually have relaxed about no OIS on the 6 that is coming for me. I'm more excited about the update to the Panorama settings, I always have a little issue with keeping the arrow straight on the line. lol. Thanks for the tips though..

    Focus pixels don't have anything to do with image stabilization though.

    IKR, if not having OIS is bugging you that much get the 6+. Man all these freaking trolls are mental and out of control this week.

    Well no, I have OIS in all my cameras. Considering the iPhone has a wide angle lens I'm not particularly worried about it since you don't really need OIS with a wide angle lens.

    Not directly true. However focus pixels takes 4 pics at a faster rate and combines to create a better image than without it. Cuts down on motion blur. The big thing with OIS is the ability to take better pictures at lower light as well as more defined pics. So, I'm still happy that I will have something that will assist me with taking better photos. :)

    That's general true with an dSLR, as their weight and the the act resting the eyepiece onto the face* provide a fair amount of stabilization already. Now a camera phone lacks these two traits, and as such tends to wobble a lot more.

    *at least that's how you are supposed to use them. Live view is handy in some cases, but it isn't supposed to be the primary means of framing your shots!

    The M8 processor is enhancing the panorama feature with the gyro. Greater stabilization when moving to get the shot. I use the pano feature a lot.

    Well I thought it was obvious but okay.

    You said

    "However focus pixels takes 4 pics at a faster rate and combines to create a better image than without it. "

    The thing you talked about taking 4 fast pictures and combining them could be referring to median blending. Not really going to reduce motion blur. And has nothing to do with phase detect auto focus (aka focus pixels).

    OIS is a fantastic camera aid. And it typically only has benefits to camera performance.

    There is this thing going around the seems like iPhone 6 will have blurry pics and the 6+ won't but its still not a cure all for poor camera techniques. OIS has been around forever and camera blur is still here. Nokia Lumia has been using OIS btw (I'm already seeing people say Apple is the first to use it in a smartphone lol) and its still possible to make blurry pictures.
