    +1 what Dave said, and I'll add that if your subject is anything besides a child on the move it works very well.

    As others here are saying, it's "ok." I think it actually degrades the image somewhat, but not significantly so. What little "stabalization" is taking place really isn't having much impact. I'm a professional photographer and believe me, the image stabilization in the phone is like spit in the ocean compared to what is in professional cameras but hey, it sounds good to the consumer.

    Yeah, but the isn't "professional camera" equipment. Its a 3.2MP phone camera. It works well for what it was made for.

    Thanks for your replies, and I got the answer: "...it actually degrades the image somewhat...".

    I know that digital Image Stabilisation is just a gimmick, but if it makes pics even worse... than we just need to know not to use it...

    I had Samsung Omnia HD before Storm 2, and belive me it was better, but I really like this BB so far, adnd I hope for some software updates in near future

    Real cameras use optical image stabilization, where one of the elements in the lens can "float" to correct for movement of the camera. Cell phone image stabilization is digital. Basically, the image is zommed up slightly, so the viewable frame can can be moved around within the entire image to compensate for camera movement. The amount of stabilization on digital is greater than that with optical, but there is PQ degredation with digital (due to the digital zooming) that does not exist with optical.

    So, if you need it, use it. But turn it off otherwise to maintaint the highest possible PQ (which is pretty impressive on the S2 all things considered).

    I agree completely. The image is degraded when using the stabilization.
