Today will be my last day working for the amazing #Lumia family. In June I will start a new chapter in Cupertino, California. Much love!

Partinen hasn't revealed what he'll be doing at Apple, but his profile says he has “worked with mobile imaging, starting from camera module production all the way to final image quality tuning and verification” on cameras such as the N8 and 808 PureView. He has also worked as a commercial photographer.
There's sort of a general consensus that the Lumia 920 and 1020 feature some of the best, if not the best cameras available on a smartphone today and by no coincidence, both cameras feature optical image stabilzation. Optical stabilization uses a gyroscope to detect and respond to movement in conjunction with a lens, or in the Lumia's case, the entire optic assembly, moving to negate said movement. Advantage? Sharper images in low light, not to mention better pictures when handling the phone with one hand. Just quickly going through my camera roll, most of the “bad shots” there are bad because of camera shake, even in lighting situations that don't appear all that dark. Optical image stabilization would go along way in mitigating that issue, providing more and better and sharper pictures. Of Partinen's known knowledge base, I don't know what Apple intends to implement first, but here's to hoping optical image stabilization is top on the list.
