Optical image stabilization for camera phones

Today's camera phones deliver relatively poor image capture indoor with a frustrating handshake blur. The new Varioptic liquid lens OIS functionality, A316S, compensates this defect, restoring an image quality comparable to a compact digital still camera. With no moving parts, the new liquid lens, A316S, is very robust and uses very limited power (less than 50mW during a shot). The A316S liquid lens actuator, featuring both OIS and silent/smooth AF, is able to fit in typical AF camera module size. Low light indoor photography and stabilized video capture will be demonstrated during Mobile World Congress in Barcelona from 15-18th February 2010.

"This unique OIS technology, developed by Varioptic, will enable our customers to integrate liquid lenses in camera phones in early 2011, accelerating Varioptic's growth" stated Christian Dupont, Varioptic CEO. "Liquid lenses with Optical Image Stabilization will enable mobile users to take good pictures even in low light conditions as well as capturing stable and focused videos with their camera phone. The next generations of camera phones will become comparable to digital still cameras and camcorders, while remaining compact and robust, added Christian Dupont".
