How Optical Image Stabilization works

Found this video that shows how the OIS works in the Nokia 920 and upwards phone cameras. Very impressive.

Where Nokia’s unique Optical Image Stabilisation, created in conjunction with ZEISS, differs from and outstrips its competitors, though, is in moving not one lens element in compensation, but in shifting the entire assembly of optical components. There are two advantages to this tactic: one, the camera can compensate for a much greater amount and form of movement—it picks up and cancels out about 50% more movements per second than convention OIS set-ups—and, two, the system has an incredibly fast reaction time—that is, approximately 300 times faster than the average human reaction time. That’s 500 movements every second—talk about sensitive!
