Six-axis stabilisation sounds dodgy

  • sheepish Top 10 Forum Poster Thursday, July 13, 2017 8:25 AM Reply

    Xiaomi Yi 4K camera comes with a six-axis gyro electronic image stabilization, so it is easy to shoot high-quality picture.

    What exactly are those six axes, DX? The picture accompanying one of those claims only shows five axes, which is the normal maximum for image stabilisation, because the forward/back axis isn't stabilised because it has to be fixed relative to the lens. If it's not the picture goes out of focus. Referring to the six axes measured by a gyroscope instead of the number of axes actually stabilised is deceptive.


    It's another example of either misleading marketing or a suppliar not knowing what they are supplying.

    Built-in 3-axis gyroscope and 3-axis accelerometer, detect real-time movement of the camera, real-time compensate movement, gain the highest quality of the pixels and picture.

    Be happy. ( *^_^* )

    You haven't mentioned what it stabilises, just that it can sense 6 axes of movement. As I said: Referring to the six axes measured by a gyroscope instead of the number of axes actually stabilised is deceptive.


    But thanks for answering my question. My next one: What exactly is stablised, and how?

    Their own graphic shows only five axes of stabilisation!



    ^S****y New Forum Interface can't cope with real world use of forum.


    Why do you think that top of the line Sony (for example) cameras only claim five axes? Because they don't stabilise the sixth axis (for reasons I mentioned in my first post above) and maybe because they don't want to lie about their products.

    Because the suppliar can't explain something it doesn't do? How surprising.
