If you can remember as far back as yesterday, you might recall that OnePlus rolled out OxygenOS v4.5.8, an update that was mostly identical to but slightly less buggy than the preceding 4.5.7. T
he headlining feature in both versions was a new EIS (electronic image stabilization) feature for 4K recording, a detail that was considered a significant omission by some reviewers. Fortunately for OnePlus 5 users everywhere, the EIS looks to be pretty fantastic.
It looks like there is a slight crop under the new update, which makes sense. Since it’s just compensating for shaking in software, it needs a buffer to each side of the frame to allow for a bit of swinging. With how well the EIS performs, though, the small loss in FOV is a small price to pay for such a smooth experience. One could almost be fooled into thinking it was hardware OIS.
There are a ton of videos that show off just how good the stabilization on the latest update for the OnePlus 5 is, and we grabbed a few of the best comparisons for you to see below.
