Abstract

With the advances in the technologies of lens modules, image sensors and integrated circuits, commercial high-end cameras have shrunk to a smaller size and lighter weight. However, improving the camera’s portability results in problems such as unstable image and video capture. The images or videos taken by miniature cameras usually have larger vibrations than those taken by bulky cameras. Image stabilization therefore becomes a necessary capability in many consumer digital cameras [1], [2], [3], [4], [5]. It is particularly important in situations where the user takes video in moving vehicles, records and tracks moving objects, or uses the camera in automatic machine vision applications in order to ensure desired visual quality and performance of processing solutions.
