Image stabilization

I know hero 5 isnt the best stabilization but with it turned on in the settings and start recording the stabilization indicator on the right side shows its deactivated. Is this just a feature or is it a problem? It's also hit and miss with this issue and is very irritating. Can I get some input on this please?

Re: Image stabilization

@jesseg367

What resolution/frame rate are you shooting in?  Stabilization is not available for all settings.

 

 

Also, When Auto Low Light and Video Stabilization are both on and Auto Low Light activates because of dark lighting conditions, Video Stabilization is temporarily turned off to deliver optimal image quality in the dark scene.

Re: Image stabilization

I think you solved my issue. Didnt realize the auto low light affected the eis. All is good now, thanks!
