    I've noticed that with most pictures I take the screen shows the scene shaking pretty badly. Small shakes...like the OIS has a malfunction of some sort. Many of my auto shots are coming out fuzzy...no need for me to link to one...it's noticeably fuzzy.

    Assuming I drew the short straw and the shake isn't just on my screen, but also in the images. FYI no shake on any other apps/screens - just when taking photos.

    No issue with that on mine. Auto shots come out stunning.

    Hmm, well, the Lumia 1020's OIS is mechanical, perhaps you managed to grab a defective model? If that's the case, I worry about usage of the phone in the long run, will the motors wear out with time?

    FWIW here is a video I just took. I figured (correctly) the shake would show in video as well as camera mode. Interestingly I think that the OIS works if I'm moving the camera (minor panning/etc), but when I'm holding it still the thing is messed up.

    You should take it back immediately, that is definitely defective and not normal. Thanks for sharing..thought you might have just been sensitive ;)

    I got curious and did a small test of my own...i'm definitely not seeing the OIS working as well as Nokia would have us believe but it is working;

    I think it is working in your Video. Optical Image Stabilization doesn't mean, that there is no shake, it just minimize it.

    Agreed...as I said it is working, just not as well as Nokia was alluding too in their presentations.

    I think people need to remember that the idea of OIS is more to erase minimal movement to take better longer exposure pictures. Not to go shaking the phone and expect the OIS to balance it.
    That said it would be interesting to see comparison between Lumia 1020 and 920 OIS. Lumia 1020 seems to have much more complicated system, but how it differs to Lumia 920.

    Yes, there were some OIS Fake-Videos at the Lumia 920 Presentation, but I think there was not a single OIS-Presentation Video for the 1020, or?
    But I would also like to see a Test between the 920-OIS and the 1020-OIS.

    I am also very interested to see the OIS comparison between 920 and 1020. Anybody? :)

    You'll have to wait til I get home and get something rigged up. I haven't sold my 920 yet and may be able to test something. It may be tomorrow evening, unless someone beats me to it. :D

    I just did a side by side and the results were just about equivalent. Held the phones up to one another and recorded. Probably not worth the effort to watch, but if you'd like I'd recommend opening in two discrete browsers and getting them sync'd up. Sorry I didn't trim it to get everything sync'd ahead of time.

    That is messed up, curiously enough I remember a review test video of the 1020 from one tech site (can't recall which one, might have been pocketnow) that had a somewhat similar issue, but less pronounced.

    The Lights in your Room seems to be "warmer" on the 1020 than on the 920. Which is more realistic?
    Btw. do you already get a new 1020 or is this video from your broken 1020?

    Was taken with the new/fixed 1020. No issues whatsoever. Regarding the temp, curiously I'd put the 920 as too cool and the 1020 as too warm. Reality is somewhere in the middle. I think the lighting in the soffit and the LED tv were giving both problems.

    I think if your phone was in some camera rig like used by blogs for their comparisons and if you jumped/jogged etc, results may have been better than holding in hand, with OIS.

    yes, my new lumia 1020 has massive camera shake straight out of the box - this video was taken whilst leaning against a window with a small amount of zoom NOT HANDHELD!

    taking it back to the store this morning

    NB, the skydrive video streaming can't keep up with how fast the image is shaking up and down, its more like a vibration

    A couple of my friends commented on how sharp and stable the video is with it being dark. I'm happy with the results
