In view of its debut, Vivo has created a video teaser in which we are told how it is structured on a technical level.

The system in action is called Micro Clouds and it is an improved variation of traditional systems optical stabilization. A double ball mechanical suspension is used, useful for the sensor to move with a degree of +/- 3 °, 3 times the angle at which a standard OIS system moves. To understand each other: all the OIS systems we are used to move on the horizontal and vertical axis. The Gimbal Camera is also able to rotate on its pin, with a more 360 ​​° movement.

To feed this structure there is a double copper coil, driven by the signal that runs along a connection cable. This cable is folded on itself twice, to save space in the body. Also because, compared to the classic OIS, here the dimensions are much higher, measuring 363 mm² and with a thickness of 4.5 mm.
