Electronic Image Stabilization has been a topic of interest ever since Google announced Pixel devices with its support. The feature got many people talking, and manufacturers started adopting the technology instead of Optical Image Stabilization. As it turns out, one of the most popular phones in the Indian market, the Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 supports it, too. It just needs a little bit of tinkering to activate it.

XDA Junior Member ronello created a thread explaining how to enable EIS in the stock camera application. Of course, you can always install the Google Camera, too. Without further ado, let’s get into the instructions:

  1. First of all, you have to open the camera application
  2. Tap on Settings
  3. Look for “Redeye Reductions” and tap on it until you get a notification saying that you’re now in additional settings
  4. Switch to the video mode
  5. Set the video resolution to less than 4K. 1080p works well
  6. Toggle the “Image Stabilization” option in the Settings

That was all. Fairly easy instructions if you ask me. Users have reported in the thread that videos are less shaky after enabling the EIS. You can try for yourself and let us know in the comments. Link for the thread will be below.
