iphone 6 camera shake


Hello, I have a question regarding the iphone 6 plus camera, as I was using my camera my hand was shaken quite violently, is there a chance I may have caused hardware damage to the camera due to the OIS system? Or how does shaking affect hardware damage in general, if at all? thanks, -Andrew

The OIS actually compensates for the shaking to get as clear a picture as possible, Unless you are dropping or hitting the phone or using a Paint shaker on the phone you will be ok
Well, I know it improves picture quality, I'm talking hardware-wise since it's a moving part, is it susceptible or more susceptible to damage from shakes (for example shake to shuffle in music) or drops? Kind of a hard question to say, and I'm thinking it wouldn't be any more vulnerable than a camera without OIS, but still I'm wondering if some camera experts knew something about that.

Shakes by hand will not affect the camera don't worry.
