Autopilot problems with image stabilization?

    Does any one else's cameras seem to need image stabilization?
    Things I notice to lead me towards image stabilization problems:
    1) autopilot on curves with noticeable waves, a single bump is not a problem, but a large slow dip or repeated dips cause autopilot steering errors. They have to change the angle of the car to the road so even fairly large sharp bumps do not change the steering.
    2) autopilot high speed (80+ MPH) sudden dip changes steering, usually to the right. Again the camera angle to the road in the vertical direction has to change to exhibit this response. Anyone in SF Bay area commuting across the Dumbarton will know what I mean, some huge dips there that are not a problem for suspension but autopilot wavers when the car angle to the road changes
