The World’s First Variable Aperture OIS Camera Module

  • The World’s First Variable Aperture
    OIS Camera Module(Optical Image Stabilizer)

  • In order to take visible pictures in dark places continually lowering lens f-numbers was the trend for smartphone cameras until now.

    *F-number: The smaller this number is, the more light is taken in, allowing for a brighter photo

  • Smartphone Camera Trend
    But this caused trade-offs such as bright areas making the picture to be over exposed or the depth of focus to be shallow, causing a loss of clarity.

  • Isn’t there a camera
    that can take great pictures during the day and night?
    In order to take great pictures in both dark areas and bright areas, a variable aperture like those used in digital cameras was needed.
    This is because variable apertures allow for different aperture values allowing for control over the amount of light coming into the lens.

  • For a camera
    that can take good pictures during the day and night
    But smartphone cameras are as small as the size of a fingertip, making it incredibly difficult to include a variable aperture.

  • For a camera
    that can take good pictures during the day and night
    And for great pictures anywhere, anytime, existing AF and OIS functions couldn’t be forgotten either.

    *AF: Auto focus system that corrects for the camera’s up and down movement
    *OIS: Optical image stabilization system that corrects for the camera’s side to side movement

  • But Samsung Electro-Mechanics does not give up!
    After endless trials, we were the first in the world to include a variable aperture in an OIS camera module.

    If the aperture is set to F1.5 - then as much light as possible can enter the lensallowing for brighter pictures in dark areas! Great bokeh as well!

    If the aperture is set to F2.4 - less light enters the lens and with a deeper depth of focus clear and sharp photos are possible as well!

  • First in the world to provide smartphone OIS camera modules that have mechanical variable apertures previously found only on digital cameras and DSLRs!

    Samsung Electro-Mechanics brings about big changes with small components. And through steady research and development, we will stand at the forefront of the ever-changing technologies of the future.
