    A magnet shouldn't impact the camera in any way, or at least, I wouldn't think so.

    My concern would lie in the fact that, a camera could be harmful to the device itself. A weak magnet should be fine, but a stronger one could potentially corrupt data or damage internals. Granted, that's more of a problem on hard drives, rather than flash memory (which is used in portable electronic devices). So I wouldn't freak out, but be cautious, because while unlikely, it does have the potential to be harmful to your device.

    What about the OIS? Isn't it magnetic based?

    No, it should not affect the camera AFAIK.
