Smartphone cameras have advanced a lot lately, while manufacturers are managing to further adapt them in the most innovative ways
Chinese manufacturer Vivo, known for its photo-oriented phones, has launched the new phone in the X50, X50 Pro and X50 Pro+ versions. In the last two versions, the “gimbal” camera system has been applied, which has never been used before on any smartphone.
Placing the camera in a gimbal enables it to take the best shots, although it is experiencing considerable vibration. The Gimbal Camera System is a small gimbal module that moves the camera in opposite directions of vibrational movements, providing clearer images. This system expands the angle of rotation as well as the anti-oscillation zone, compared to other stabilization methods.
