Question Can't find where to turn on Image Stabilization for video camera?

Does anyone remember where the image stabilization setting is for the stock video camera?

I don't think you can set the image stabilization settings in the stock app. For that reason I've switched to ICS Camera+ which looks exactly the same but allows you to turn on/off stabilization for both the video and photo.

I'm pretty sure it doesn't have image stabilisation.

I'm pretty sure you didn't watch the Galaxy Nexus keynote.

What would be the advantage to turning it off?

On the GN the stabilization tends to give the video a more blurred look. So your video is "less shaky" but blurry. I'm much happier with the video when stabilization is off. The video is much cleaner.

I can't even tell if it's on or off. It still seems pretty shaky if it's on by default.

It would be cool if we could change the levels of image stabilization.
