Note 8 is the first phone with optical stabilization on both cameras
by Daniel Petrov / Aug 23, 2017, 10:45 AM
Samsung just got on the stage to extol the virtues of the Note 8's new dual camera, and, among the adjustable focus pre- and post-shot, the 2x zoom, and other shenanigans already done with dual cameras on other phones, it slipped one unique feature in a jiffy. It turns out that the Note 8 is the first major phone that has optical image stabilization on both camera sensors.
Thus, the 12MP wide angle lens and the 12MP telephoto one both have their system of springs and shocks that compensate for hand movements hundreds of times per second, making for floating videos and crisper shots (at least in theory). We can't wait to test if two OIS systems are better then one indeed, but for now have a look at Samsung's official camera video above for a quick demo.
- Display 6.3" 1440 x 2960 pixels
- Camera 12 MP / 8 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, Octa-core, 2350 MHz
- Storage 64 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 3300 mAh(22h talk time)

Yes, nothing special, except that it will put all other smartphone camera to shame. Note8 is king, just accept it.

No it will not. What a circle jerk. Once a comparison is done with he Note 8 vs the LG V-whatever and the iPhone 7+, you will see the others rush to be forst and bring nothing. With a 12MP telephoto lens, the photo will be sharper and will have far less noise if any. Since its 2.4 aperture which is larger than 2.7, that means it will take a better picture in low light with the 2nd lens. I still think and stand by my feeling that dual cameras are gimmicky and pointless, but at least Samsung improved what others really should have had from day one. The iPhone 7+ costs $900+ and they could put OIS on all 3 cameras? What a joke!

Spoken like someone who has never experienced dual camera telephoto setup ever because it makes quite a difference actually, esepcially when recording 4K video. And the Note 8 now takes this to the next level by having OIS in the telephoto module. This device will be able to retain very noticeably better detail zoomed in vs the S8 and every other device. It's the next logical step in improving smartphone photography I think you will change your mind big time when you see the results from the Note 8 soon. I am really glad Samsung went with telephoto and not wide angle lens

And LG is using a camera with smaller pixels and needs to capture more light from a larger aperture just to match Samsung. My S7 has EIS for video, doubt that got removed. Samsung as duel pixel focus, something LG has yet to implement. The telephoto lens is more useful, especially for video, than a wide angle lens IMO. I think you meant to say, Go home LG until you learn to compete.

What about audio? You know we have had 4K recording and can get great images on a $200. smartphone...but unless they improve audio a nice image or video is just that, like everything else these days.
