But still an interesting video from +SuperSaf TV!
The +Sony Xperia Z5 does a good job at stabilization, especially in 1080p video.
It's a shame that 4K video recording doesn't benefit from the same stabilization quality, although there's still some.
As it's digital stabilization only however, you'll often see some artifacts coming from the motion blur due to movement in frames.
The Z5 also does a good job at stabilizing the front facing camera although it's at the expense of some artifacts and crop, is there no such capability on the Galaxy S6?
Galaxy S6 front and back lens are very good at dealing with flare, which is not the case with the Z5.
The Z5 color profile and automatic white balance is colder, as usual with +Sony products.
Galaxy S6 appears to be more reliable and consistent overall than the Z5, which can sometimes get the automatic white balance all wrong like at 4:57 (it gets a nuance of green as white reference, hence the whole scene turning into almost greyscale)

So, still not really what you want to get from a ~600-700€ smartphone. Getting an android phone is really a task to find the best possible tradeoff for you. I'm still searching. 😉
True +Daniel Becker. Not only is it hard to find one with good feature/price balance, you also have to consider the software side (especially fast updates). This leaves only Motorola and Google, IMO. I was really considering the z5, but despite of the DXOb rating, I find the picture quality underwhelming. Sharpening artefacts everywhere! If the z5 would support raw it would make it very interesting again.
I'm still surprised that Sony can't get their processing anywhere near other manufacturers that use their sensors. However, they are still king at stabilisation.
Indeed +Alex Richards. But I'd take OIS over software stabilization any time (for photos).
+Mario Kreutzfeldt I think a mix of both OIS and their software wizardry (which I'm sure would use gyro sensors) would be perfect. For the time being, I much prefer the look of what Sony do here on the Z5 than any other smartphone right now.
+Alex Richards I agree, today's Samsung's stabilization solution is not as good for video especially in walking situations.
I'm curious to see if the Note 5 is better at it, maybe +SuperSaf TV has videos for that too 😊
Interesting that digital stabilization in Z5 outperforms S6 with OIS.
Photo is a different story though
