Hero 6 stabilization doesn't work in low light?

Hi everyone, may I know why my Hero 6 stabilization doesn't work in low light condition?. I owned S9+ camera, DJI Mavic Air as well as Canon 200D and in my personal opinion I like the Hero 6 pictures and videos more compared to the rest during the day time. But for night time it totally disaster. Previously the stabilizer does work even with jello effects but now not anymore. My videos all becomes like an earthquake footage lol. And because of that.. I have to leave my Hero 6 at home during the night time outing. 

 

Thank you in advance.

Re: Hero 6 stabilization doesn't work in low light?

The camera requires being able to identify horizon and fixed objects to apply EIS. In low light it is unable to do so effectively so the EIS is automatically reduced or turned off.
