I'm sorry but this feature is absolute garbage. If I wanted to stablilise my video I'd do it myself, or hold my hand steadier. You basically can't film anything worthwhile without this crap ruining my video. As it's completely automatic, it basically doesn't the auto focus on a camera. It's just terrible.


Apple have desperately tried to advertise the camera on the phone to be great, so great you can shoot your own video projects on it...but you can't, because of this **** auto stabilising nonsense. Some people might want to use it, like those with overly shaky hands, or those who don't mind their video digitally zoomed in, but I do not.


Please, give me the ability to turn it off so I can do a simple track of someone skating down the street.




p.s. I also saw someone say "Why would you want to turn it off? That's like asking for a single core processor as opposed to the current one." No, this isn't the same thing. Idiot.


p.p.s Also, if I can turn this off and I'm just too ******** to find it, then fine, I apologise for my outburst.

iPhone 5, iOS 6.0.2
